Assilah Eco Village is located in Northern Morocco. If you’d like to participate in building this eco village, learn more on the Assilah Eco Village page at Work Away. Here’s what Linsey says about herself on Work Away.

I am a 61 year old English woman, settled in Morocco for the past three years. I am creating my own Nirvana with the help of like minded souls of all ages. Presently I share my space with 15 chucks (including rare breeds) , Lila my little Maltese cross, Booby out new puppy guard dog, and Cuzco as well as our potential ‘mouse catchers’ Lulu, NC and Teabag.

I am not an expert in natural building, self sufficiency or eco living, I enjoy working cooperatively, as part of an enthusiastic team, experimenting, and learning together to do the best we can.

Off-Grid Tiny House Living Empowers a Flipped Workweek

Kev & Jan are empty nesters who’ve built their own debt-free tiny life that includes a flipped workweek. They only work weekends now thanks to their own tiny mobile juice & smoothie bar business – which gives them time to travel and spend more time together.

Bryce Langston from Living Big In A Tiny House visited Kev & Jan and got the full tour of their tiny home. They built it themselves for just $54,000 AUD (~39,000 USD). That price included a rain water collection system and a $9,000 AUD (~$6,500 USD) solar system.

It’s a larger tiny home measuring 14 m long and 9 m wide (~45′ by ~10′). In addition to the spacious interior size, the home also has a large folding glass door to capture the view and a large bathroom/dressing room with dual vanities.

10-Foot Wide Tiny Home by Nelson Tiny Houses

A popular trend in the world of tiny houses on wheels is to build the home 10-feet wide. While this is over the road limit of 8-feet, 6-inches, most people don’t move their tiny homes often and obtaining a temporary oversize load permit to move the house is usually not too hard to obtain.

The builder of this home is Nelson Tiny Houses, located in Nelson, British Columbia. The homes they build are always filled with beautiful custom woodwork and every detail carefully thought-through.  Subscribe to the Nelson Tiny Houses YouTube Channel for more videos from this tiny house builder.

Earthship Villa Composed of Tiny House Sized Rooms

Architect Mike Reynolds is in Puerto Rico giving a tour of an Earthship Villa project currently under construction. It’s composed of multiple rooms that are each tiny house sized. Like all Earthships these homes make their own water, power, and are completely independent of the grid. The walls are made from used tires filled with compacted dirt and in this example the roofs are ferrocement domes. Learn more about this novel construction method at Earthship Biotecture.

VW Bus Giveaway Ends Tonight

Sabrina and Jimmy will soon be selecting a winner for their VW Bus Giveaway. The winner will be announced on their Instagram on January 20th at 7 PM PST. The free entry by mail option is gone now, since it relies on the mail, but you can still enter by buying WANDXR Post Cards.

I don’t know how many people are buying their postcards to enter, but if you’re wondering how a young couple can afford to give away their van in a promotion, watch the VICE News video below.

It gives us a peek into the world of influencer marketing and how big brands pay people with popular YouTube and Instagram profiles big money to help promote their products. For some people this might seem wrong, for others this will sound like a great way to help finance their own #vanlife.

I don’t know what’s next for Sabrina and Jimmy, but I wish them all the best and hope their iconic VW Bus finds a great new home.
