When Chris and Malissa Tack built their 140-square foot tiny home on wheels three years ago, blogs and resources on the subject were few and far between. At the time, they only knew of one couple building a tiny house – most were single individuals. Some people aren’t sure they could share a small space with another person, but Chris and Malissa have made it work, and even enjoyed the way it’s shaped their relationship.

They both need to spend significant time at home – Malissa works from home full-time, and Chris does freelance photography and videography in his spare time. They both know their way around little house design, having created two sets of plans for tiny homes and a wide variety of 3-D renderings of small space layouts. They found they needed to make a few adjustments to their behavior and to their original space design to make it work as a live/work/work space for two people, but now they don’t feel constrained by their home’s size.

Right now I wanted to let you know about Paul’s tiny house for sale. (SOLD) It’s a Wildflower tiny cabin on wheels that he bought a few years back from Tiny Green Cabins (Update: Page no longer found) and has been living in it for the last two years or so.

He doesn’t really want to sell it but the situation is that his parents are getting elderly so he’ll be assuming the mortgage of his parents home and moving to Seattle after many years in Boston.

And there’s no room for the tiny house on the small city lot where his parents are. Since he has nowhere to park it or keep it, he’s selling it and using the money for the move.

It’s built using welded steel instead of wood framing. The price also includes a Dickinson marine fireplace, two 30lb propane tanks, one 20lb propane tank, a metal tank cabinet, and more (see below).

If you like the idea of living in a tiny house but would rather have a hot tub tiny cabin on a trailer… Then you probably won’t be able to get this tiny house company out of your head because it has just that (see below).

Unfortunately, this is not available in the United States right now because they’re still just a small company in Warwickshire, England. And they specialize in designing and building these tiny cabin units for the growing glamping market. What do you think? Would you ever consider building something like this for yourself?

According to the Huffington Post Kayla Feenstra is a landscaper who’s found a way to live better without a mortgage.

She designed and built the home of her dreams. It just happens to be a mortgage-free tiny home of just 130 square feet.

It’s been nicknamed, “Jack in a Box.” And she built it for just $15,000 and two months of labor. It was built right onto a trailer.

So if she ever wants to move she can simply tow and go. Especially since she doesn’t own her own land.

I think you’ll like this Vagabode tiny house built by a young couple.

It’s a 175 sq. ft. micro home built right onto a utility trailer.

They designed and built it for full time living to simplify their lives and reduce their impact.

With no prior building experience, they set on a journey to build it. And they did it.

That means… Yes… There’s even a kids room in here!

Back in 2011, I showed you SignaTours teardrop campers, but did you know that they also build tiny houses? This is “Our Little Secret on St. George Island,” a tiny house vacation by the sea in Florida!

It’s 8′ x 24′ so approximately 192 square feet of space without including the sleeping loft.
