Raw Food Livin’ is a YouTube channel and blog dedicated to eating raw vegan foods and living minimally. Turns out the blog’s owner recently moved into a studio-style Swedish Tiny House on land!

She uploaded a video tour of the 300 sq. ft. place that has a small kitchenette (no stove, which works great for someone who eats only raw foods!), a bathroom with a washer and then a main living area with her bed, storage, desk and couch. She lives there with her pup, Pepsi.

Check it out!

This is a 400 sq. ft. Off-Grid New Mexico Cabin in Tierra Amarilla on 5.27 acres!

For the asking price ($44,900), I think this is quite a deal. Not only do you get your tiny house, you have some land so you’ll have a place to live happily ever after (as long as you don’t mind the off-grid life, of course!). Plus it’s pretty cute inside! It runs off solar and wind power and comes with fishing rights to water bodies just a short drive away.

Enjoy the pictures and get more information about the house and contact details on the last page!

Alan Reid has designed a 8×12 tiny house as part of our 2015 8×12 tiny house design contest. He calls this design The Lookout.

The total height of this tiny house without foundation is 13 ft. Alan said with some height modifications this could be built on a trailer but as pictured below it’s on a foundation.

He has spent some time creating these beautiful pictures below of the exterior and interior of his design.

In his design there is a desk area, kitchen and bathroom on the bottom level and a sleeping loft above.

Enjoy the pictures below of 8×12 The Lookout Tiny House Design.
