Because we live in and are constantly tweaking the same tiny houses we sell, we have a unique and practical perspective on what works and what doesn’t in a tiny living space. You could call us tiny home alchemists, constantly pushing the boundaries of quality and innovation in a quest to build the best tiny home possible.

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.

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.

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.

To help others realize their tiny house dreams, Dee also founded Portland Alternative Dwellings, a tiny house education, resource, and consulting company.

The popularity of the tiny house movement has led to so many good new small home designers and builders that it’s difficult to keep track of them all. We know that making a list inevitably means we’ll leave some great companies out but, nevertheless, we wanted to highlight some of the small house companies we’ve covered on Apartment Therapy, ranging from modern to traditional, prefab to custom built.

An insulated glass garage door opens to a small deck, connecting the interior space to the landscape beyond.

This floating 240-square-foot cabin is an off-the-grid summer escape for Maine couple Foy and Louisa Brown.

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.

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

While the structures often measure less than 300 square feet, the tiny house movement isn’t necessarily about sacrifice.
