Our Tiny Texas House is a beautiful Victorian cottage custom made from period reclaimed building materials. The attention to detail is astounding in this work of art. The cottage features vintage stained glass windows, antique wood floors and trim. Climb the ladder to the sleeping loft and sleep soundly in the plush king size bed. Enjoy a relaxing soak in the porcelain tub and shower.
In 2010 and 2011 an Earthquake hit Christchurch, New Zealand causing a great amount of damage and a whole lot of salvaged material. With what many saw as destruction and waste, Stephan Cook saw as a great opportunity to get high quality material for a low cost. With the material, he built what is known today as the “Biggish Tiny Home.”
Coming in at about 215 square feet, this tiny home is a sight to see! Complete with industrial windows and doors, Stephen’s home includes an open floor plan which gives the illusion that the house is bigger than it actually is.
It also includes a sitting area, full kitchen, eat-in bar (which has a lovely outside view when the windows are open) and a loft upstairs which holds a queen sized bed and closet space.
This tiny home also has a refrigerator, hot water boiler, oven and air heater. Situated in the lush woods of Christchurch, this tiny home has it all. Great location and a fabulous story behind it. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thanks!
This is the story of a man named Larry who built a self-sustained and off-the-grid home out of two shipping containers. He wanted all of the comforts of a home and to be able to live in it comfortably up to a year or more if need be.
To do this he ordered two sea containers and welded them together to make one awesome cabin. Water is heated using solar power or by woodstove if necessary. Access to water is by well. The two containers combined add up to a 40′ x 16′ floor plan so about 640 square feet of space inside.
Rob Scott dropped by our blog a few days ago and left a comment with a link. My jaw dropped when I clicked through and saw his truck studios made out of recycled materials.
I know you guys will love his work– It’s really one of a kind. The first thing I thought was: these are tiny houses built right into classic trucks! Before you leave, share your favorite thing about these trucks in the comments.
