Mallory lived in the neighborhood of this adorable stone cottage and always wondered what it was like inside. When it came on the market, she knew she had to have it! She bought the space for $170,000 and started renovating the space to match her personal style.

The kitchen is a Barbie-pink masterpiece, complete with a pink refrigerator and cool paper-wrapped countertops. She has a massive and well-organized walk-in closet and lots of mushroom elements to stick to the “Mushroom House” theme. What do you think of her handiwork?

Katharina and her husband purchased this 1960s home that was once a holiday property and hadn’t been updated since it was built. While living in it, the couple has done a fantastic job taking it from old to new, while still retaining (or adding) so much charm to the building.

There are exposed beams, a hardwood floor, a lovely full kitchen in the corner, and a bedroom with a cozy bed alcove. The special artist studio is the icing on the cake!  Read Katharina’s story about her home below the photo tour.

While it might be almost twice the size of many THOWs, this little foundation home is still quite compact compared to the McMansions all over the U.S. And it comes with 3.5 acres of land! Perfect for starting a little homestead — or just enjoying privacy.

The house is on sale for $150,000 and sits in Sheridan, Arkansas. It has one bedroom, one bath, and a beautiful farmhouse-chic kitchen. There’s also a wrap-around porch and carport. What a deal!

Melanie and her husband have been living tiny now for nearly a decade! First they decided to renovate an Aistream, which they happily lived in for four years before deciding they were ready for sticks and bricks. That’s when they found this adorable 1953 bungalow and turned the 800 square foot space into their home sweet home.

They’ve been there now for five years, slowly remodeling the place as they had the funds (no construction loans here, woot!). The couple got in touch with us and did a great Q&A, which you can read after the tour of their little home. What do you think?

This three-bedroom home is another perfectly-designed creation from Mønhuset that would work great for a small family. Like in the Farmhouse design we showed you last week, their “Courtyard House,” separates the bedrooms and main living area with a spacious breezeway/mudroom area. Which if you live anywhere with ice and snow is a HUGE plus.

Created by Danish designers, it has an unquestionably Scandinavian vibe, with light-colored walls and flooring and huge windows that look out on the surrounding nature. These homes can be custom-built and prefabricated to your needs!

This is another lovely design by Mønhuset, a Scandinavian tiny house builder who just opened up shop in Canada, bringing their amazing pre-fab designs to North America. This “small house” clocks in at just over 1000 square feet, and is set up differently than any home I’ve seen before!

There are two main buildings, connected by a breezeway (that can be closed off from the elements). In one building you’ll find the kitchen/dining/living rooms, and in the other, three bedrooms and a bathroom. It’s a great design for families, where kids might be napping while others are bustling around!

This is Liz’s lovely small home, built from an old garden shed on her parents’ property. Her mom and dad are excellent DIY-ers, and did much of the work together with Liz to help build out her awesome little home.

It features a bedroom that connects to the rectangular living/kitchen/bathroom via a small breezeway. The inside is a lovely mix of honey-colored wood with black and white accents. It’s decorated with specially-curated accents from Liz’s travels, and custom metal pieces that she made herself. In addition to her home, Liz runs a seaweed bath business in the family’s backyard, and she shows off her set-up in the video below.

Big thanks to Dwayne for sharing these awesome 480 square foot homes that were built in the community of Orange Mound in Memphis, Tennessee. According to Wikipedia, this community was the first in the United States to be built by and for African Americans.

The homes have the same layout, but different elevations, and both sold for $55,000 (so affordable!). These one-bedroom, one-bathroom homes are new construction and show that small/tiny houses can be built on foundations!

What do you think?
