Instead of renting an apartment, they decided to build their own tiny house instead!
The design is by Laird Herbert of Leaf House which is where the couple bought the plans to build the tiny home. It’s built to be off-grid, ready for cold climate, and is already set up with solar power and deep cycle batteries.
When you go inside, you’ll find a living area, kitchen, bathroom, sleeping loft, and more. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
This is a tiny house with a built-in aquaponics system in the kitchen. It’s pretty interesting and something I’ve never really seen before in a tiny house on wheels.
It’s called the Tiny Giant House and several years ago in 2015, it was listed for sale for $60,000 USD. The home was built on a 24-foot trailer, weighs about 13,800 lbs, and has so many unique features like a built-in chicken coop, a rainwater collection system, solar array, an AQUAPONICS system, 45-gallons of water storage, and more…
It also features a 9.2 cubic foot refrigerator, a full-size combo washer/dryer, a SunMar composting toilet, an LG mini-split air conditioner, and more. This tiny house is almost completely self-sufficient, isn’t it? Amazing…
This is a 200 sq. ft. off grid tiny house sent in by Andrew Cox.
Hey there, check out my 200 sq. ft. tiny house. It’s hidden in high desert of the Pacific Northwest and is 100% off the grid. Composting toilet, 12 volt power (totally wired and lighted throughout), propane & wood stoves. Easily sleeps 4 and totally set-up for the prepper. Completely over built and over insulated as the weather varies wildly between the negative teens and triple digits. Buttons up nicely for long term storage.

This is the story of Kristie Wolfe and how she built her own 230-square-foot tiny cabin in Hawaii in the course of two months for only $11,000! This was after she had built her own 97-square-foot tiny house on wheels in Idaho for just $5,000. But she just couldn’t stop there.
So after a few years, she decided she would buy her own plot of land in Hawaii. She did sight unseen, for $8,000. This would be the location of her second tiny home. Later, she and her mom built the house together using only $11,000 in material cost and two months of labor together. What a cool way to bond, right!
This tiny cabin is 15-ft by 15-ft and sits up on stilts. It’s completely off-grid meaning you even have to rely on rain for water. Don’t worry, she’s got a nice rainwater system set up here. There are even rooftop solar panels for electricity and propane for cooking and heating. Today, the unit is a vacation rental that you can actually book on Airbnb. So what do you think, could you design/build your own tiny house kind of like this?
Right now I’d like to share with you their video and photo tour of Vina’s amazing tiny house on a trailer that she lives simply in full time. And it truly begs the question, would you rather stay put and live simply in a tiny house on wheels or live and travel full time in an RV like Joshua and Natsuko? A tough question for you, I might imagine, as it is for me. Enjoy the tour (and video) below and let me know your preferred way of living simply in the comments at the bottom. Thanks!
