When Vina Lustado moved into the 140-square-foot home on wheels she and her husband Cliff had built (for $40,000) in 2013, it was a continuation of a lifetime of living minimally: from a modest home in the Philippines as a child to a one bedroom duplex in LA shared with 9 siblings to an adulthood living in guest houses.1
It’s a unique design that you have probably never seen before. The tiny home features two lofts: one for sleeping and the other for use as a floating office/study.
The idea is definitely not practical for everyone, but I could see it being a hit with students and rock climbers alike. The home is built by Build Tiny in New Zealand. It’s called The Millennial and you can see more photos of it here. What do you think of this floating loft office concept? Is it something that you would consider doing for your tiny house on wheels?

This is a 30ft tiny house on wheels that’s actually a mobile dental office with three working dental chairs!
It was built by Alpine Tiny Homes and it features a Humless back up battery along with a 6.5kW solar system with an 8kW generator for redundancy. It’s completely off-grid ready with a 100 gallon water tank too. The owners of it are setting up in the Dallas, Texas area so be on the look out for Nomad Dental!
This is Tave’s tiny home on wheels that she built for less than $20k. It was actually nominated for the 2016 Tiny House of the Year and is one great little home. Tave made this place her own in the 9 months she spent building it, adding a crafting/sewing station as well as a home office.
I am a 38-year-old woman from Maine. My tiny house took 9 months and just under $20k to build.

Student’s Rooftop Tiny House Built to Use as an Office/Study
This 480 sq. ft. backyard cottage Berkeley, California is a guest post by John Olmsted of New Avenue Homes
Bruce and Nancy have an active and engaging world. They have a growing daughter, family, and guests coming by regularly, and many hobbies and interests. When grandma and grandpa were visiting for the holidays and found themselves staying in a hotel on the other side of town, they knew it was time to upgrade their home. With help from New Avenue, they converted an old milk barn in their backyard into the perfect guest house.
At 480 square feet, it has a bedroom, bath, big closet, and living room perfect for accommodating visiting family and friends. There is an additional 160 square feet for storing gear and tools. The surrounding yard is beautifully landscaped with a stone path leading to the main house.

Travis and Kelly approached New Avenue back in February 2013 to discuss adding an accessory dwelling to the backyard of their Oakland, CA home. This 250 square foot casita is intended as a guesthouse and office.
Construction took about 5 to 6 months and began at the end of 2013. Some challenges to this project included poor access to the backyard, a very sloped lot, and older utilities which lead to a replaced water line. Just as the work came to completion in June 2014, Travis and Kelly adopted a baby. Now they take turns working from home two days a week in their backyard office so they can spend quality time with the newest member of their family.
When family and friends are in town to see the new baby or if Travis and Kelly are entertaining and hosting a get-together, they offer their casita as a small home away from home for overnight guests. It has a fully functioning bathroom and working washer dryer. When the family is away, it serves as a residence for their dog-sitter.
