Here’s one example, a Canadian couple building a 200 square foot tiny house on wheels. The house is amazing. Love the use of dark wood on the end wall. Love the stairs and thick natural wood surfaces. Looks like they are putting in a lot of sweat equity.
Pictured here is a small 10’x10′ cabin by Thunder Beach Wood Works – located in Lindsay, Ontario. They build sheds & bunkies and are available for custom work.
“We are also interested in the Small House Movement or Tiny Homes. This would be a home between 65 and 887 square feet and could act nicely as a small Summer Home or as an alternative to a home addition.” – Thunder Beach Wood Works
I had an MPAC person stop by my project, Tiny House Ontario a few days ago. If you don’t know, these are the tax assessors that ensure that the people of Ontario pay their fair share of taxes. I am not opposed to paying my fair share of tax, what I oppose is the way that building codes do not allow people to build as they wish. I absolutely understand and agree that they need to be put in place so that people don’t just build unsafe, cardboard dwellings in which they, their family and guests could easily burn to death.” – Laura
Thanks to Jennafer who told me about this product which is just about ready to go. If this would have been available for THO I would have considered them. To put this in perspective, a solar panel the size of my roof would easily give me enough power for heating, cooling and cooking. Talk about sustainable solutions!” …continues
Laura breaks downs recent costs of Tiny House Ontario.
“So far in 2012 I have (with help) built the in-house with composting toilet, added some (not great) LED battery lighting, put steel on the exterior, added gravel dust for the patio (to allow this to settle for next year’s project), updated (not completed) the kitchen and purchased the items for the off grid solar installation including fixtures. Below is what I spent on this phase.”

Tiny House Ontario is getting some siding – and it’s looking super sweet! Laura says:
“My childhood friend Allan calls Tiny House Ontario “The Chocolate Shed”. For those of you who don’t know me… this is owing to my huge addiction to Cadbury chocolate. When I looked at the photos for the first time, it suddenly dawned on me that I picked steel that is the same colour as my favourite food group. I think that Allan will like this!”
