This is the Hemlock – it’s a tiny cottage with a 1-car garage by Trafalgar Homes. I thought it could be the perfect tiny home as long as you don’t mind the upstairs bedroom although you could make the living area double as your bedroom with a murphy bed or a sleeper sofa.

The main floor is 364 square feet and there is an additional 415 square feet upstairs. There’s less on the main floor because of the 10 x 19 garage. So what do you think? This is a pretty nice and simple design with a very small footprint.

It’s not the most affordable tiny house you can find, but it is a high-quality home. Please take a look and let me know what you think? This tiny house is called The Luna.

Here at Tiny House Talk we like to share all kinds of homes to inspire you in your own tiny house journey.

The folks at Tiny Life Supply contacted us recently to tell us about their micro living shop and research hub, and on their website I found three great tiny house 3D Sketchup designs that you can borrow, modify and use to create your own home! There aren’t plans or step-by-step instructions on how to build the designs, but they might give you some ideas to incorporate into your future build.

See some still shots of the designs below and then go to Tiny Life to see the 3D renderings and specifications.

The Weller Tiny House on wheels is one of Jay Shafer’s latest designs since forming his new Four Lights Tiny House company.

And in the recent years, I think he’s made some great improvements to his previous designs most of which are now retired.

But right now I want to get your focus on the 115 sq. ft. Weller tiny home which is about 7′ x 16′ and designed to be built onto a 7′ x 16′ trailer.

Quick Housing Solution has mastered small spaces with their one-bedroom Jillaroo, the studio Squatter, and their office space Joey.

This is a Sydney, Australia based company and they call each of their dwellings a SHACK in a PACK.

They are designed using modular panels and there are several choices in colors. The panels are put together using snap-click-lock technology which they say works like “Lego”. Using this system makes the installation quick without the need of heavy equipment.

According to their website Australia has had their own housing crisis where there has been a need for students and the elderly for affordable housing. Due to this, the government has released a policy allowing all residential home-owners with large enough lots to be granted approval to build a “granny flat” on their property.

This new policy allows homeowners to expand their housing space and/or earn extra rental income from their property. It’s nice to see how the Australian government responded to the housing needs over there.

So, take a look at some of their designs right here and then jump on over to their website to learn more about their SHACK in a PACK granny flats.
