About a year ago I introduced you to Shaye and Tom thanks to the people over at Living Big in a Tiny House. I love this story because this couple decided to ‘just go for it’ and take advantage of the benefits of tiny house living early in their life. They’re now enjoying more freedom and are building a life on their own terms.
Right now I’m here to give you an update on them since a lot has changed for them after living in their tiny house for one year. They now have a newborn daughter named Hazel. Their tiny house has a new porch and it’s fully decorated inside. And if you really like their house you can even buy the plans to build one just like it yourself.
In this post, I’m going to show you a micro houseboat that you can probably build yourself if you wanted to.
You know, one of my favorite things about tiny houses, micro cabins, and “alternative” structures is that you can be as creative as you want about it. You can build tiny however and wherever you want… On wheels or on the water (like this micro houseboat). Up in the trees or underground.
This is the Miter Box Tiny House on Wheels. It’s designed by Shelter Wise LLC in Portland. And for a while, back in 2013, it was part of the Tiny House Hotel in Portland, Oregon.
You can still buy the tiny house plans from PAD Tiny Houses (they’re currently selling for $79.00) and you can use those plans to build your own version of the Miter Box or you can hire a contractor to do it for you (using the plans).
This tiny house was completed in June 2013. Its nickname is “The Miter Box” because of the precision of the project. This 90 square foot house features a dining table that converts into a queen bed, much like in many RVs. In addition, it offers two other lofts. And the bathroom is a wet bath.
Today I wanted to show you Jay Shafer’s Weller tiny house design.
It’s a 115 square feet gabled cabin designed to be built on a 7′ x 16′ trailer.
This home embraces classical geometry which Jay and his Four Lights Tiny Houses are famous for.
What I like best about it is the traditional craftsman bungalow style.
This isn’t the most inexpensive tiny home because it’s a quality designer house but it’s still made to be affordable to ordinary folks like you and me who might want a lot of styles to go with their future little house.
