You might remember when we featured this home as a new build back in May. Well, it gets better! Kay and Pete have moved in, and we did a little Q&A with them about their tiny lifestyle. I love seeing “lived-in” tiny houses, and their idyllic spot on family land makes the best backdrop for this home. They’ve created a little off-grid homestead with a DIY workshed.

This home might have the best layout we’ve ever seen — a large L-shaped kitchen, cozy living room nook, full bathroom (with a soaking tub!), and a gooseneck bedroom with a magnificent closet. You don’t want to miss it! Enjoy the Q&A at the bottom of the post.

Here’s one of the original ESCAPE tiny house layouts — the Vista — on a scenic 30 acres of land in New York. It’s set up as an Airbnb and has everything you could want for a weekend stay.

YouTuber Cash Jordan recently stayed in the tiny house and shared a video review of the spot. It’s fun to see someone unfamiliar with tiny living try it out for a night. What do you think of the Vista?

Lee and Payam from Instead Tiny Homes built this off-grid tiny home for Lee’s family. It was a prototype for the off-grid homes they now sell, but it’s also Lee’s full-time residence. Lee, his wife Rebecca, and their son, Max, rent the property where their homestead sits from a friend.

The Scandinavian-inspired tiny house features a ground-floor bedroom separated by a full bathroom. Right now it’s Max’s nursery, but someday he may want the loft, and mom and dad will move into the bedroom. The galley kitchen has tons of counter space and full-sized appliances, and there’s a cozy living area and loft bedroom. What do you think?

One of the biggest complaints with tiny homes is that people don’t want to crawl into a loft to go to bed. But, getting a bedroom on the ground floor usually means sacrificing space for the kitchen, living area, and bathroom. Not in this tiny house!

Angus tows tiny homes for a living and got inspired to get his own. He and his partner have created an amazing off-grid homestead with a tiny house that has a full kitchen and bathroom, along with a cozy living room loft and a bedroom loft with standing room. If you’re going to go with a loft, THIS is the one to have. What do you think of this build?

Colby and Aria used to be vanlifers, but are now proud owners of more than 14 acres of woodlands in Vermont, as well as their very own DIY tiny home that’s entirely off-grid (they even get water from their stream).

Their 360 square foot home is heated by wood they cut themselves, and they have an awesome solar array that keeps their home powered. The interior of the THOW feels like a cozy log cabin, and they dedicated a whole 15 feet of the house for their living area.

Aria teaches and Colby is a wedding photographer (@anamericanroadstory), plus they rent space on their land for campers via Hipcamp. We got to interview Colby about the build, their choice to buy land, and what they love about tiny life. Check it out at the end of the post!

Kenton Zerbin ditched his 9-5 as a teacher to build his very own debt-free, off-grid tiny house on wheels! Now he grows his own food, composts in his little home, and travels the world teaching others about how to successfully go tiny. And he has in-person Canadian workshops coming up, as well as an online workshop you can purchase any time!

These workshops are designed to give you all the information you need to plan your very own tiny house (and build it!) without making costly mistakes. You’ll learn about heating and cooling your tiny, about plumbing options, tiny house legality, and where to park your tiny! Both the in-person and online workshops cover similar topics, but obviously the in-person ones will give you a special connection to Kenton and other tiny-homers!

He has Canadian in-person workshops coming up in October, and you can purchase the online workshop right now here! Keep reading to see a photo tour of Kenton’s very own THOW!
