This cozy tiny house is 24 feet long and it has a sleeping loft with a staircase, two heat sources, lots of natural light, and a rustic cottagey interior design.

The current owner, John, bought the tiny house from a couple who lived in it off-grid for 2 years while they built their permanent home. It’s now located next to a lake in Chelsea, Quebec, Canada, and you can rent this tiny house on Airbnb.

Beige has been living fully off-grid in this tiny Mongolian yurt from Groovy Yurts for over 2 years now.

She doesn’t have electricity so she uses candles for light, she has a woodstove for heating and cooking, and she hauls in water from a nearby spring.

The only item that needs electricity is her phone, which she can charge in her car on her way to and from work.
