Do you have a tiny house? Proud of what you’ve created? You should enter the 2018 Tiny House of the Year Competition.
Tiny House of the Year is a friendly competition between folks with tiny houses (homes under 500 square feet). It’s free to enter and while there are no cash prizes winners will receive a tiny 3D printed trophy. This year the trophies will be made in metal.
To enter, tiny home owners simply write-up their tiny house story and post photos and videos. Entries will be accepted through October 31, 2018.

Shed of the Year 2010 Competition
One of my long time readers, Joseph Sandy, is one of the contenders in the Shed of the Year competition. Here’s what Joseph says about his shed:
Originally designed for storage, it now also serves as a quiet retreat from the main house. It features rain-screen siding of reclaimed redwood fencing. A polycarbonate clerestory provides ample light for any use. The interior walls are plywood and pegboard to provide a finished appearance with flexible use/storage options.
Vote for Joseph Sandy’s Shed
The entry deadline has passed and the competition is on at the Secrets of Shed Building. Be sure to leave comments at the Secrets of Shed Building website on the designs you like most since reader comments count in the jury process. Pictured here is my entry, the Glass Porch Shed. Below is my walk-through video.
