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!
I really love this open-concept tiny house with no wheels! Because there are no trailer size restrictions, the living space is 12 feet wide. It’s amazing how airy it makes the whole space feel.
You get a kitchen complete with hookups for the full-sized appliances you’d like to add, and a bathroom with a large walk-in shower (plumbed for a normal toilet, but you can go composting if you’d like).
In the bedroom, there’s a slightly-lofted bed that still allows for tons of headroom, and if you added some permanent steps would be easy to get in and out of. It’s for sale in Pennsylvania, asking $35,100, and you can contact the seller with questions and offers here.
Shawn and Jess have been living tiny now for more than four years in an RV, and they recently finished this tiny house on a foundation where they will vacation and plan to retire someday!
This is a great example of a new shed transformed into a tiny living space. They purchased the shell from Tuff Shed and then Shawn built out the entire interior of the home. It has two lofts, a large main living area, and a bathroom/kitchen in the back. While the indoor kitchen is quite minimal, there’s a large outdoor patio area with a grill and more.
Watch the video tour below, and enjoy our Q&A with Jess after the photos!
This is the model house for Tiny Lofts, a new tiny house builder in Germany with an eco-friendly design for a modular tiny house sans wheels.
The sleek, modern house has a minimalistic Nordic feel on the exterior, but many of the exterior and interior finishes can be selected from a catalog and customized to suit your tastes. At about 323 square feet, the home includes a compact kitchen, spacious open floor plan for the living space, and a super-luxurious bathroom with a full soaking tub in front of a whole-wall window.
You can customize the house to be off-grid, or let it hook up to power and water like a standard house. A wood stove, radiant floor heating and electrical units are all choices for climate control. Enjoy the photo tour below and check out more options and details on the Tiny Lofts website here. The model house is also open as a vacation rental, in case you want to see the quality and function of the house up close. Book here.
Scott & Ashley have done it again! They found an amazing tiny home, this time in Durham, NC, that you can rent on Airbnb.
The amazing part of this little cottage is that it started out as a dilapidated shed! Now, the 451 square foot farmhouse is a lovely one-bedroom, one-bathroom vacation property that shows you just how lovely a tiny house on a foundation can be.
Enjoy the video tour from Hive Drive Bus below. They got to take their dogs to this pet-friendly home, and the results are pretty adorable.
Crystal is a self-proclaimed introvert who prefers living on her own, so she jumped at the opportunity to put down roots in the “middle-of-nowhere” Alaska in her own dry tiny cabin.
She purchased her basic shell about four years ago, and has used reclaimed, thrifted, and gifted materials to transform the place into her happy home. During the past 9 months she’s been adding a loft to the space and creating a master bedroom. Her next project will be getting a shallow well so she can have running water.
Her simple life has made her grateful for the little things — like electricity which she lived without for a whole year! Watch her interview with Tiny Home Tours below.
Check out this adorable, rustic Old Hickory Tiny House on skids that’s for sale in Knoxville, TN. Built from some kind of house kit, this 384 square foot home has a metal roof, two porches (one detached) and two lofts.
Inside there’s a spacious living room that could easily double as a ground-floor sleeping area, as well as a kitchen and bathroom. One loft is great for storage, while the other could be used as a bedroom (although the ceilings are fairly low).
At $35,000, it’s hard to beat the price for something so finished — but keep in mind you’re responsible to pay for towing. Make an offer at Tiny House Marketplace here.
Remember the owners of Tiffany the Tiny House and how they had purchased an island and were building a tiny octagonal foundation home to use as a rental? Well, the house is now complete!
Tim & Sam temporarily moved into the vacation spot on Shellmate Island (@shellmateisland on Instagram) so they can work out the kinks and get it ready for guests. Soon enough they’ll be putting it on Airbnb (we’ll keep you posted!) and you can enjoy a piece of their island paradise! You might also like to hear that they got approval to build the home and worked with zoning/building regulators to get it “legal.”
The 320 square foot home structure came from Deltec Homes. According to the couple, “Its unique octagon shape and custom truss system has given this home design a 99.9% success rate in the last 50 years to all major category 5 hurricanes throughout the world, making this the strongest tiny house on a foundation in the world!” Wow!
They are moving Tiffany this week from the campground where they’ve been parked and are bringing her “home” to Shellmate Island!
