Inside Tiny Houses

When documentary filmmakers Merete Mueller and Christopher Smith set out to make a movie about people living in tiny homes, they became so intrigued with the lifestyle that they built their own 130-square-foot cabin.

The film, TINY: A Story About Living Small, premiered on March 9, 2013.

Professional pastry chef Mark Wynsma has a tiny kitchen with just 10 inches of counter space, a few little cabinets and a single drawer. To make up for the lack of storage, he stashes his cooking tools in his freezer, under the bed, in clothes closets and in a trunk in the living room.

“The kitchen island is the real savior in making my space functional,” says Wynsma. “The key to making a big piece work in a small space is having the bottom of the island open and the marble top white.

This treehouse-slash-guest room looks small from the outside, but boasts a living room, office area, and bedroom within. Take a tour.

Designed by Derek “Deek” Diedricksen of Relax[link href=”http://www.relaxshacks.blogspot.com” link_updater_label=”external” target=”_blank”]Shacks.com and built by Joe Everson of Tennessee Tiny Homes, this transforming micro A-frame cost only $1,200 to construct. One roof/wall is made of Tuftex polycarbonate roofing: Not only is it translucent to allow in natural light, the lightweight material is attached to the structure with hinges so it easily can be raised and propped on legs to expand the space from 80 square feet to 110. On the other side of the A, the purlins supporting the roof sheathing are placed horizontally to serve double duty as shelves. Two daybeds offer additional storage, a kitchen wall features a sink and space for a mini fridge, and a micro loft has a hinged “sunroof” for ventilation. Architect duo David and Jeanie Stiles drafted the build-it-yourself plans for this A-frame, which are on sale for $30. —ESN

Designed by Broadhurst Architects, this prefab corn crib-inspired structure takes its basic form from traditional American corn cribs, which were common farm buildings that served to store and dry corn. The chic, modern 250-square-foot structure is delivered and assembled on-site, and includes a sleeping loft, an expandable kitchen wall, a bathroom, and living room. An insulated glass garage door opens to a small deck, connecting the interior space to the landscape beyond. Made of sustainable and recyclable materials, the structure can be dismantled and relocated to another site. Take a peek inside. —ESN

The Wedge’s bathroom was designed for maximum storage without compromising aesthetics. Each features top-of-the-line glass showers, vanities with stone countertops and Kohler fixtures.

The bathroom is unique in that the entire space acts as the shower. We like this “self-cleaning” element.

The owner of this Austin abode turned two mobile trailers into one 400-square-foot home that’s connected only by a deck.

At first glance, the 400-square-foot Wedge, designed by Wheelhaus, appears to be a tiny luxury cabin but it’s actually a mobile Park Model RV. Lofty 17-foot ceilings and a large sliding glass window at the front give an open feel to the rustic yet modern dwelling, which features a bedroom, bathroom, and combined kitchen/living room area. A 100-square-foot deck offers additional entertaining space. The Wedge is one of six turn-key models offered by Wheelhaus that start from $82,000. Not looking to buy? The Wedge is also available to rent at Fireside Resort at Jackson Hole Campground.

Those who inhabit tiny houses don’t have the luxury of expansive sofas, clusters of chairs and nests of tables, so what they do have needs to count. Tucked into a bright, sunlit nook, this chair can act as a solo reading retreat, a spot for guests to sit, a perch for doing office work on the computer and much more.

The Pequod, named for the ship in Moby Dick, is a marvel of modern amenities and upscale materials, all cleverly maneuvered into one tight squeeze. It measures 26 feet long and weighs 11,500 pounds.

This Cypress kitchen was customized with a “nook” kitchen and two-burner gas cooktop with an external propane tank. There’s no need for a special permit to tow.

We just had to include this adorable rolling house of holy. With destination weddings all the rage, this beauty will come to you or EcoCabins will help you acquire your very own.

Every element of the home serves a purpose. Sliding panels reveal the Toybox’s hidden storage.

From cooktops to full stoves, these Tiny House RVs have a range of options to suit your most adventurous cooking ambitions. This Elm features a two-burner electric cooktop.

“Our favorite thing about living in a tiny house is the way the outside landscape fills up the interior space,” says Mueller. “Our window-to-wall ratio is also really high, and I love the way each window frames a different view.

There’s something about living in a small space that makes the outside world feel that much closer, even when we’re tucked cozily inside.” Photo courtesy of TINY: A Story About Living Small

Tiny houses are popping up around the country as more people decide to downsize their lives. While the structures often measure less than 300 square feet, the tiny house movement isn’t necessarily about sacrifice. With thoughtful, innovative designs, some homeowners have discovered a small house actually leads to a simpler yet fuller life, connecting them with family, friends, and nature while freeing them from mortgages and an urge to keep up with the Joneses.

The one-of-a-kind Toybox Home is the result of two guys running into each other at a Chicago reclaimed materials store. Frank Henderson, a music student, met Paul Schultz, a designer, and the two decided to design and construct a tiny house where Henderson could live while in school.

The Wohnwagon hails from Austria and is constructed from natural, recycled and a few new materials. The exterior is covered in naturally waterproof larch wood, which is known for its durability and attractiveness. 

When he designed the Toybox, Schultz used lighter wood to make the space feel more open. The folding table has plenty of room for two. Above the bathroom doors is a sleeping loft.

This 196-square-foot house near Boise, Idaho, is home to Macy Miller, her partner James, their daughter Hazel, and their Great Dane, Denver. A 27-year-old architect, Macy designed the home from scratch and built it on a 24-foot flatbed with help from friends and family. Clad in siding made of recycled pallet wood, the minimalist home is flooded with light and feels spacious despite its size. Hidden storage under the bed, above the pantry, and behind the fridge are contrasted with open shelving in the kitchen to make the space feel bigger. In total, Macy spent about $11,000 on her tiny house and is now able to live rent- and mortgage-free. Take a peek inside. —Ellen Sturm Niz

“We’ve all been sold on the idea that what we want is a big house,” says Joan Grimm, co-owner/operator of Portland Alternative Designs (PAD). “But more and more people are realizing that they don’t want to work 12-hour days to be able to afford a home they never get to enjoy because they’re so busy working.

One of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company’s newer models, the Roanoke can sleep up to six people and features a shed style roof. Take a peek inside.

With an attachable greenhouse and porch, the Elsa by Olive Nest Tiny Homes proves that you can still have it all in a small space. Take a peek inside.

Rustic elements, such as weathered wood, meet with corrugated metal to create an attractive exterior in harmony with the natural surroundings.

The eco-friendly Toybox is one of the most original tiny homes we’ve ever seen. It was created with the concept that home should be a fun place inspiring creativity while also providing peace of mind. 

Tiny houses redefine the term “mobile home.” For lifelong nomads, one of the most enticing factors of these structures is their potential for portability. Many are outfitted with wheels that allow them to be pulled behind a vehicle and then parked at the next destination.

Full-size ranges, double-bowl sinks and side-by-side refrigerators simply won’t fit. In their place: mini versions that don’t hog space, such as this two-burner stove stacked on top of an oven (with storage tucked behind, to boot).

Tumbleweed’s Elm features a custom arched window above the door reminiscent of an old-fashioned train caboose. The full porch and lancet window give this exterior design the charm and elegance that started it all.

This floating 240-square-foot cabin is an off-the-grid summer escape for Maine couple Foy and Louisa Brown. Assembled onshore, a foundation of plastic floatation tubs, Styrofoam, and pontoons was then towed to sea, and the cottage was built above it, using mostly pine shiplap. Louisa carries water out daily via canoe for a tank that fills the shower and kitchen; at night, candles, oil lamps, and solar lights illuminate the home.

This cute 80-square-foot guest cabin was built in just three weeks for $700. Take a peek inside.

This view from the Toybox’s sleeping loft provides a bird’s-eye view into the living space where module seating serves as storage and can also be arranged to form a bed.

The sleeping area features hidden storage that can be used to conceal twin bed rolls or dirty laundry. Fold-down shelves maximize space and pull-out drawers act as a nightstand. 

Tumbleweed Houses are designed to weather all seasons, climates and personalities. The Cypress makes use of the most interior space, by incorporating a recessed corner porch affording the interior living area more space.

In only 100 square feet, this tiny house known as the Nugget fits a kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area. Take a peek inside.

Inside, a palette of pure white keeps things simple despite Foster’s preference for overstuffed furniture and layered decor.

Just one of the homes in Oregon’s Mt. Hood Tiny House Village, “Savannah” features yellow cedar plank siding with red shutters and white trim. So welcoming!

The Linden’s kitchens are completely customizable and take advantage of a ton of natural light, which is why you came out here in the first place, right?

Mica owners enjoy the freedom that tiny house living affords owners to wake up just about anywhere they can find a (legal) parking space.

The small house movement started roughly a decade ago, but the economic crisis rapidly accelerated its growth as people began to re-evaluate their lifestyles, craving the simplicity that comes with scaling down.

At a fraction of the average house price (some a mere $20,000), these structures eliminate the hassle and potential pitfalls of a mortgage. Plus, they force their occupants to pare down their belongings to the essentials and devise innovative solutions to make the most of every inch.

Living in such a small space forces Sauer to carefully and continually edit his belongings. But he doesn’t mind it — quite the contrary. “It leads to a more thoughtful life,” he says. Photo courtesy of Steve Sauer

The Wohnwagon features spruce paneling or other woods indigenous to the region. Walls are insulted with wool, which naturally controls humidity. There are solar panels mounted on the roof with a recharging battery pack beneath the floorboards.

It’s 125 square feet with no real cooking or bathing facilities, but Sandy Foster’s cabin in the woods affords her luxuries she wouldn’t have in a city apartment, including acres and acres of quiet space all around her.

Dallas designer Paige Morse renovated two 100-year-old sheds in her backyard to create a cozy home away from home. With just two rooms and 250 square feet, her space is remarkably stylish and space-efficient.

While the Nomad’s Nest model from Wind River Tiny Homes will go just about anywhere you like, it is designed to stay put, not be pulled like an RV. However, should you decide to pull up stakes, this home can be toted to a new location whenever you like.

The Elm features a fully functional tiny porch and can sleep up to three people. Take a peek inside.

Try scaled-down living on for size at Live a Little, a collection of three mini retreat, including the Old Blue Chair shown here, surrounding a central fire pit on a scenic mountaintop property just outside Chattanooga, Tennessee. Rates from $142 per night.

Named after one of our favorite trees, Tumbleweed’s Linden screams outdoorsy, though it does it with subtlety. The tiny porch is a great place to sit and watch the sunset or the local wildlife.

To create a home office in her tiny home, Killy Scheer of Frisson Design hung a curtain from the main room’s ceiling. When the curtain was open, the office felt spacious enough for both work-at-home spouses.

This is the Olympia, Washington home of tiny house pioneer Dee Williams, author of The Big Tiny, a memoir that details her decision to downsize to an 84-square-foot house that she built from the ground up after a near-death experience. Constructed atop a metal truck trailer, the super-small pine-and-cedar bungalow houses a kitchen counter with a propane one-burner, a sleeping loft, solar-powered lights, a composting toilet, and a sink (but no running water). To help others realize their tiny house dreams, Dee also founded Portland Alternative Dwellings, a tiny house education, resource, and consulting company.

Inside the Wedge, a large sliding glass door opens to a private deck, which increases living space. We think the gas fireplace feature, which also comes in electric, is just heavenly.

Maximizing vertical space in a tiny home is crucial. Enter the loft, which often is used as a sleeping area. Some have built-in beds that fold up during the day to make room for an office or play area, and others hold inflatable mattresses or futons.

The crew at Escape Homes has been constructing cabins for many years and recently decided to go mobile. The result is the Escape Traveler, a luxury cabin that qualifies as an RV.

This model was customized for a pair of newlyweds, but Wind River can easily install a loft or bunk beds. We love the industrial hanging light cages.

The 204-square-foot “Wind River Bungalow” is the Chattanooga, Tennessee, home of tiny house enthusiasts Travis and Brittany Pyke, who started Wind River Custom Homes to help others fulfill their dreams of living simply in mini dream homes. Constructed of rain-screen cedar and hardy siding for extreme durability, the bungalow is full of custom features, including a pine and cedar interior, polymer concrete counters, and a loft ladder integrated into the shelving system. —ESN

Designed by Andrew and Gabriella Morrison for EcoCabins, the “hOMe” boasts a unique staircase with built-in storage that leads to a heavenly master sleeping space.

International relief worker Gina Bramucci, who travels for work much of the time, calls this 136-square-foot PAD on Grimm’s land “home” and an arrangement that benefits everyone. “Tiny-home living encourages community,” says Grimm.

“Instead of every home having a lawnmower, five homes can share one lawnmower.”

The studio includes a sleeping area, kitchenette, bath and workspace, notes Gravitas’ Mark Wagner. The owners of this particular unit sometimes rent it out as a B&B, a good way to test-drive small-space living. Photo courtesy of Gravitas, LC

This darling red-roofed cottage sits in a grove of leafy trees near the water’s edge in Freeport, Maine. Designed by Mac Lloyd of Creative Cottages, the environmentally sensitive abode packs in a full kitchen, bathroom, living space, sleeping quarters, gas fireplace, laundry, and a loft space, while still managing to seem airy and spacious.

The Linden’s roof takes advantage of two full dormers that not only let the sunshine in, but also give it more space. It’s the perfect spot for relaxing or hosting fellow glampers.

Inside this treehouse-inspired tiny cabin, you’ll find salvaged church windows, reclaimed wood, and a funky dining table set crafted from old boats.

This 280-square-foot tiny house is here to prove anyone who claims you can’t use dark colors in a small room wrong. Instead of going light and airy, the Indigo Tiny Home by Driftwood Homes USA is decorated with pops of dark, moody colors.

From the streets of Manhattan to the Oregon coast, your Mica kitchen will serve you wherever you wake.

This tiny house is a musician’s dream: it houses a giant working amp and the deck even doubles as a stage. Take a peek inside.

Customize your Elm with optional dormers in the loft for added space, light and cross breeze.

The Cedar Mountain Tiny House, built by Nashville-based New Frontier Tiny Homes, might look small on the outside, but inside, it’s big on farmhouse-style design. With repurposed accessories, shiplap walls, subway tile, and rich hardwood floors, it’s the perfect combination of rustic-chic and modern simplicity.

With its floor-to-ceiling windows, the Escape Traveler has definitely upped the ante in the tiny house game. If you’re curious about the construction, check in to Canoe Bay in Chetek, Wis.

Just because you go off the grid doesn’t mean you can’t update your Facebook page by the fire. Each Wedge comes wired for cable and Internet. Mini gas-burning or electric fireplaces and AC can also be added.

Dubbed the Farallon, this tiny house from Tumbleweed Tiny House Company comes in two sizes (20 feet and 26 feet) and features a stylish farmhouse-style interior. Take a peek inside.

As soon as you walk inside this tiny 250-square-foot home, a tidy and warm escape full of country character greets you. Natural light swims throughout the space, and farmhouse-inspired wood accents (most of which are made from salvaged and reclaimed wood) give it a rustic yet modern touch.

Four couples in Texas created “Bestie Row,” a mini neighborhood where they could all live in houses lined right up next to each other. Each tiny house boasts a bedroom, living room, and bathroom, and was constructed with a minimalist motif—think concrete floors, grained plywood, and a metal exterior.

The Wedge’s tiny kitchen features a two-burner cooktop, a built-in mini fridge, microwave oven, a dishwasher, Caesarstone or granite countertops and high-grade cabinetry.

We love the EcoCabins “hOMe” model not only for its sleek exterior but also for its functionality. Inside this tiny beauty you’ll find a fully functioning kitchen, a sleeping loft and a modern living space.

Every inch of an EcoCabin is designed with form and function in mind. This award-winning model features plenty of built-in storage, fold down tables and a cozy sleeping loft that we adore.

We love the recycled tile in the tiny home’s shower. So far, less than 10 Wohnwagons are in existence making each one unique.

The sleek design by New Frontier Tiny Homes features a farmhouse sink, shiplap and subway tile squeezed into 200 square feet. Best of all, though, a sliding glass garage door reveals a deck that pops out from the home, making al fresco dining a cinch.

Though the exterior screams Davy Crockett, the interior’s designer touches include hip light fixtures, stainless steel appliances and faux stone flooring.

The most popular option in Tumbleweed Tiny House Company’s fleet, the Cypress offers bay windows, a mini corner porch, and up to 269 square feet of usable space. Take a peek inside.

Who says that you have to compromise on taste? It’s hard to believe that a four-burner gas stove can be packed into one of these tiny mobile homes.

When engineer and artist Steve Sauer decided that his one-bedroom apartment was actually more space than he needed, he converted a basement storage unit in a Seattle apartment building into a 182-square-foot “pico dwelling.”

This 550-square-foot Maine cottage has solar panels on the southeast-facing porch to collect energy (auxiliary batteries can store at least a week’s worth) to power the refrigerator and heat shower water. A wood stove, anchored by a hearth made of local beach stones, radiates enough warmth for the entire building.

Drop Homes are not only ADA compliant and street legal but also available to rent making them a great solution for the temporary of a loved one. 

A tiny wood staircase leads to the Nomad’s bedroom, while French doors provide natural light and an open space perfect for enjoying the great outdoors in style.

Greg Parham of Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses likes keeping things simple, earth-friendly and affordable. After discussing your wants, Parham will translate that into your needs and custom build you a home that suits both.

There’s no longer any need to go over the river or through the woods to get to grandma’s house. Conceived as an eldercare solution, NextDoor Housing Drop Homes park loved ones right in your backyard yet afford you both independence and privacy.

Solar panels heat water for the shower and greywater is filtered through the green roof and is reusable within 24 hours. Clean water is stored under the floorboards.

Tumbleweed Houses laid down its roots in 1999 basing their business model on the concept that homes could roll and lay down roots just like its namesake. All models, like this Mica, can be customized in-house or they will help you out with a DIY kit.

 

As if complementing the environment surrounding it, the Escape is constructed with our Mother Earth in mind utilizing the greenest and most sustainable materials on the market.

We must confess that the Escape Traveler’s kitchen is nicer than a lot of ours. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is unparalleled thus far.

Furnishings that can be collapsed or tucked away when they’re not in use give a small home the flexibility it needs. The drop leaf on this table, which sits snug with the wall so as not to waste floor area, folds up or down depending on the homeowners’ needs.

Talk about a picture perfect country getaway: This custom built 336-square-foot cabin sits on 24 sprawling acres in West Point, Texas—just steps from its own four-acre constant flow lake, tiny lake house, and wooden pier. The rustic wood-paneled interior features a living space, full kitchen, bathroom, and two lofted bedrooms, all housed under a corrugated metal roof.

Originally designed as a writer’s studio, this 272-square-foot duplex by Gravitas, LC is easily adapted to a permanent dwelling, and the architectural plans are available from the firm’s website.

We love the Wheelhaus Wedge exterior for its marriage of rustic and modern design elements. High trapezoidal windows on the sides ensure privacy, while the mostly glass front floods the Wedge with natural light.
