Ben’s Tiny Home

The entire house is less than half the size of a standard two-car garage. (According to Google, most garages are 20 feet by 20 feet. Hurst’s home is 8-by-24 feet.)

Across the front is a covered porch, with two large screened doors. Step inside, and you’re standing in the living room, a spacious-feeling spot, thanks to the 10-foot ceilings. Decorative moldings and oak floors (found for free on Craigslist) add to the cozy feel.” – NOLA.com

350 Square Foot Home by Small Home Oregon

These houses aren’t built in a mobile home factory.  They are built one at a time to your specifications, the same as any other stick-built house.  Most all the homes built in Oregon are constructed on site with full permits, codes and certified subcontractors.  Small Home Oregon ensures that you’ll have a quality house in about 4 months, start to finish.” – Small Home Oregon

McGlasson weeHouse – A Small Vacation Rental

Two bedrooms and one bath, an IKEA kitchen, and a living room surrounded by the owner’s own handmade storage and objects make up the most asked-about modified weeHouse by Alchemy. At 756 SF, the house’s rooftop deck adjoins a guest room and features an exterior (only) site-built stair access. Located near Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota, the red stained pine “Corncrib” siding was inspired by local wood cabins and the image of a tugboat.” – Alchemy Architects

Dwell Home

The largest design show in the nation invited Reclaimed Space to be on of their Outdoor Participants. We built a special Dwell Space and brought it to California.

Andrew Explains Passive Solar Tiny House Basics

I was recently challenged by one of the students in theSmall Home. Big Life. e-Cours(E) to talk more about passive solar opportunities in the small house/tiny house community. My initial response was that it was not in the course outline (for good reason, mind you) and that that was a huge challenge considering all of the layers of passive energy. After thinking about it some and even losing a little sleep over it I realized that the concept itself wasn’t all that hard and that some may want to know more about it or how to find out more about it.
