Students from the University of Texas Arlington Architecture program became the first class from UTA to design and build not one, but two tiny houses.

In the Fall 2016, 20 design students competed for the chance to have their designs come to life. From there, outside contractors, architects, and builders thoroughly evaluated each design, choosing the best options that would be suitable to build.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thanks!

This is a 23′ green caravan tiny house. As you walk up the steps to the delightful covered porch you are greeted with a Dutch-style door. Go inside and you’ll find a wood-burning stove and two cozy chairs for relaxing in the living area. There’s also a dinner table with a built-in bench seat with built-in storage space underneath.

To the left side of the wagon is the kitchenette with a small sink, refrigerator, and a toaster oven. Beyond the kitchenette is the bathroom. At the rear of the wagon is the sleeping area with three beds, enough for four people to sleep comfortably! There are beautiful details through the entire wagon including exposed beams, carved corbels, a barn door, and a built-in dresser. Would you live tiny in this tiny house? Let us know in the comments! Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

These are tiny houses built atop classic farm trucks in Australia. They’re some of the most amazing house trucks I’ve ever seen.

Rob Scott, of Hollyburton Park, has been building studios on the back of old farm trucks over the past few years. The housetrucks offer the extra space you might want to use as a backyard office, guest house, children’s rooms, or anything else you might be able to think of. Would you consider one of these tiny house trucks for yourself? Personally I think it’d be pretty awesome to get to live in one. How about you? Either way, please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

This DIY pallet house is a guest post by Priscilla Crighton – share yours!

This is a pallet house built by engineering student, Angus Hughes. The house is located on his family property on the outskirts of Rockhampton and is just about water proof. 

There’s no running water but electricity is available courtesy of a durable power cord running from the family shed.

“The size of the pallets dictated the size of the house which is three pallets high, three pallets wide and five pallets long,” Angus said. “The exterior and interior walls are made from pallets while the floor has been created from packing timber which was donated by a local glazing business.”

The second year civil engineering student, who is currently studying at Central Queensland University, recently moved in a few modern conveniences – fridge, TV and barbecue – along with beds and other furniture made by his father, making it the perfect student pad. Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

It could be used for camping, as a backyard office or quiet reading space.

What would you use this DIY micro cabin for?

Below you can see a few photos and a video on this DIY micro cabin in Florida.

Inspiring, empowering and uplifting are not even words that can describe Alexis and Christian’s Tiny House Expedition.

The awesome duo are building a tiny house on wheels. But they are not doing it on their own.

With local community roundtable discussions and group builds they are empowering those around them to get involved in the tiny house movement.

They hold community build days where people can come out and see the tiny house being built and contribute if they like.

The community roundtable discussions in their local area are geared to spread awareness about tiny houses and the innovative housing opportunity for everyone.

Once the tiny house is complete Alexis and Christian will be heading out on a journey around the U.S to show off their tiny house and let thousands of people see it and tour it. All while documenting other tiny houses and tiny house communities they encounter along the way.

“The purpose: document tiny house community building projects across the nation and tell the story of how each came into being, the people behind them & how they are making a difference in their communities.” – Tiny House Expedition

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to run into Meg and Joe’s tiny house tour on their YouTube channel.

Then I found their blog, Living Small Under the Big Sky, and was glad to read some of the inspiring quotes on living simply.

But when I say live simply I also mean living richly.. Just in a different way than most of society sees it. You know what I mean, right?

Tiny House Tour after Construction

After Meg and Joe finished the construction (thanks to the help of some friends and family) they were a bit fearful about moving it.

Fortunately, it towed perfectly fine without any issues. 🙂
