New Design – Navarro 20

We’ve got a new design available, the Navarro 20. It’s a 20-foot tiny house plan with a shed roof. Four large windows let tons of light into the house and make this design ideal for a locating in a place with a great view.

The high ceiling, big windows, and single large room would add to the open feeling in this tiny house design. At the end of the house – behind a pocket door – is a bathroom with a 32″ shower, toilet, and wall mounted sink.

Like all my tiny house plans you have the flexibility to finish the house however you like, this is just one example. Learn more about the Navarro 20 at TinyHouseDesign.com.

Inside an Ecovillage Tiny House

EarthSong Eco-Neighbourhood has long been at the cutting edge of sustainable design and urban permaculture. It’s for that very reason that it should be no surprise to discover that EarthSong is also now home to one of New Zealand’s first Tiny Houses.” – Bryce at Living Big in a Tiny House

A Tiny House Design by Malissa Tack

Yesterday I had a dream, of a space and I really wanted to get it out of my head on in 3D, so this is what I came up with. I went right to work the moment I woke up and put the final touches on it today with the renders.” – Malissa Tack

Tennessee Tiny Homes

Joe Everson started Tennessee Tiny Homes in 2012, but Joe has over 15 years experience building custom homes. He’s located near Memphis, Tennessee and in the last year has completed several homes.What I like about Joe’s work is the diversity of designs he’s exploring – no two houses are alike. They are all outfitted a little differently too, based on the buyer’s needs I assume. They also shows off Joe’s diverse skills.He is also working on offering financing in an attempt to make his homes more accessible for buyers. Unlike a normal mortgage, it should be possible to pay off a tiny house in the time it takes to pay off a car.You can find Tennessee Tiny Home on Facebook. Also check out their sister company Tiny Happy Homes.

Open Trail Homes

Open Trail Homes, a new tiny house company has been launched in North Salt Lake, Utah. They currently offer four models from 128 to 320 square feet.All of the homes are built on wheels and the largest measures 12′ x 24′ – which would make it better suited for a semi-permanent installation since special move permits are typically required to move 12-foot wide trailers. All the others could be moved with a full size pickup truck. They are all equipped as RVs with electric & water hookups as well as built-in fresh & waste water tanks.Three of their four models are designed with beds on the lower level and three have additional sleeping/storage space in lofts. LOW-E double pane windows and 12V LED lighting appear to be standard on all models.I’m very impressed with the packages they’ve put together and suspect this company could become a leader in the tiny homes market. They also mention a larger parent company, but don’t mention a name. I wonder if a large RV or home builder is testing the tiny house market waters with these homes. They appear to be highly refined and well sorted-out.To get a look yourself visit the Open Trail Homes website and Follow them on Facebook.Photo credit to Open Trail Homes.Top: Blue Sky model, 165 square feet.

The Advocate Tiny House Project

The Advocate Tiny House will be created through crowdsourced collaboration. In other words you can help design it, and the Advocate Tiny House team will build it. When the house is complete they’ll use it to share the world of tiny house living with others. The finished house will be available for touring, traveling, classroom learning, workshops, rental, etc.At this moment in time the only design decision that has been made is the size and source of the trailer. It will be built on top of one of tiny house trailers available through Tiny Home Builders. So it’s the perfect time to jump into the process. Andrew Odom from the Tiny r(E)volution is spearheading the project.To learn how to participate visit their website, follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Meet Ethan Waldman

Ethan Waldman is a technology coach who quit his corporate day job and took his future into his own hands. One of the steps toward his goals was to downsize and build a tiny house. His journey officially began about a year ago when he left his day job and started building his home. Here’s the short version of his story:“On June 1, 2012, I packed up the contents of my desk into two plastic tote boxes, left my ID Badge on my desk, and walked out of the office. It was my last day as a full-time, salaried employee.I got in the car and drove about an hour– to the Morrisville airport in Morrisville, VT. There, in an empty airplane hangar was a brand new 22′ trailer loaded down with about $1000 worth of lumber.I had done it. I quit my job and started construction on my very own tiny house on wheels. Of course, the real story wasn’t so simple…”Read the complete story about Ehtan’s Tiny House on his blog.
