Here’s an amazing hand-crafted tiny house that’s for sale in California. Built primarily from reclaimed materials, all the wood inside sealed with just all-natural tung oil, a non-toxic alternative to polyurethanes and stains. Any paint you see is old-fashioned milk paint, and everything is either plywood or real wood — no MDF or particleboard. Finally, the fabrics chosen are natural latex and wool (so watch out if you’re allergic!).

The house design includes a compact corner kitchen and a little wet bath (you provide the composting toilet). There’s a lovely painted table in the middle of the house and a futon in the living room area. A small desk space is set up to allow you to work from home. Finally, you can climb a ladder to the bedroom loft where a skylight gives you views of the stars. You can purchase it for $104K.

This gorgeous 2021 Payette Model built from Tru Form Tiny has hardly been lived in, providing an excellent chance to get your hands on quality construction without waiting months for a custom build. Best of all, it was designed to be non-toxic and as such, no vinyl, MDF, OSB, formaldehyde, petro-solvent fuming, off-gassing chemical materials or finishes were used.

It features a galley kitchen, loft bedroom, and downstairs living room that could double as the sleeping area. The full bathroom has a tiled tub and shower, a residential toilet, and laundry. It’s designed for full-time living and doesn’t disappoint. You can get it for $160K in Joshua Tree, CA.

Something that you might not have thought about when designing your tiny house is the dangers of using toxic materials in such tiny spaces such as a tiny home on wheels.

In a quick exchange of e-mails with Brad Kittel, of Pure Salvage Living and Tiny Texas Houses, I was able to take some of his knowledge on this and share it with you here because it’s important for your health. You’re also invited to take part in the discussion and share what you know in the comments below so we can all learn even more about this issue together.

Brad says, “there is 15 times less air to wall ration in a tiny house and very few have the proper air exchange rates to offset the carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide that we generate as humans, let alone the other chemicals in the closed-in tiny space.”

So how do you make your tiny house safe? How do you free it from these sneaky toxins that are conveniently sold everywhere? And yes, all of this is even more important in a tiny house because the volume of space is a lot smaller!
