After finishing grad school, Sam decided that a tiny house would be a perfect fit for her lifestyle. She wanted to remain in Vancouver, BC to be near work, family and friends; but the cost of living in the city was incredibly high.

She also wanted to be able to work a not-for-profit job without worrying whether she’d have enough money for rent each month. Last but not least, tiny houses were a housing solution that fit well with her environmental sustainability values.

This is Hammerstone School’s First Tiny House, and it was built by women.

Hammerstone School is a carpentry school in New York that teaches women to – you guessed it – build tiny homes (and other things!). Liz Coakley has lived in the home she helped build since 2013, but now the house is for sale. It has a loft bedroom, is plumbed for a shower and toilet, and has amazing cozy touches inside. Enjoy!

This is the story of a woman building a tiny home for the price of a car!

To keep the costs low, she’s doing just about all of the labor herself.

At first, Melinda Dean thought she couldn’t do it herself. But now, she’s proving herself wrong! Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below.

I’m excited to tell you about Hammerstone School because it’s a tiny house carpentry school for women in Trumansburg, New York. Best of all, they learn by building tiny houses hands on.

The school offers  workshops and courses including Basic Carpentry Skills 101, Tiny House Framing for Beginners, and more. Below you can see how a group of 13 women who are students at Hammerstone built a tiny house on wheels together starting with an old travel trailer.

So if you’re a woman who is in or near the area, this just seems like a great place to get around the right people and to start learning how to build tiny houses (and more). If you want to help spread the word please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you!

Hi Alex and Tiny House Newsletter readers, I thought you might enjoy seeing some pics of my 450 sq. ft. duplex units.

I’ve been renovating it for the past year and a half and I’m closing in on the finish line.

These units are reverse floor plans of each other and are approximately 450 square feet each of living space and each side has a one car garage.

It’s a bit of a senior citizen, built in 1948 and has kept me on my toes since getting it.

At this point, I think I’ve touched, or had someone touch just about every square inch of the place. Enjoy my home. 🙂

Guest Post – How I Built the Cutest DIY Cargo Trailer (aka Micro Cabin) Ever

This project was done as a way to quickly and inexpensively enclose my 6’x10′ utility trailer to protect my cargo during transport to the Blue Ridge Mountains where I would start building my own tiny cabin. So I figured, “why not make it cute and practical at the same time?” I bought the trailer new and then built the enclosure around it for about $400 in materials and about a month of labor on my spare time.

I built it on the fly with no plans since it was only intended to keep the rain off my stuff and allow me to lock it up at night. If I hadn’t used reclaimed materials for much of it, I could have finished it a lot faster. But because I used reclaimed materials it took a lot of creative manipulation to make it all work.
