Dustin and I recently embarked on a photo and video road trip through New England. Our VERY FIRST stop, up in South Londonderry, VT was Domenic Mangano’s “Jamaica Cottage Shop”, and man oh man, was his spread impressive- something like 20+ sheds, cottages, cabins, and more.” – Derek “Deek” Diedricksen
James and Kristen headed back to New England after a winter in Texas in their tiny house. The trip was mostly uneventful and took just three long days of driving. The main downside was that it cost them about $1,000 in gas. For the complete story visit their blog.
Libby and Tristan are building this lightweight (1000 pound) tiny house with a budget of $1,500 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. They plan to move into it this summer and make a move to New England. Most tiny houses are very heavy, much heavier than normal travel trailers. This project is extremely interesting because it pushes the envelope on how much can be done with little money and less weight. I’m certain their work will inspire many others to build similarly lightweight tiny homes. You can follow their progress on their blog called, Whittled Down.
