Modern Tiny House in Ashland, Oregon

This build is actually a retrofit from an old trailer with a shell (look at the last photo in the slide show below…it’s literally hard to believe what this tiny used to look like). There are some very unique features in this modern tiny house (soaring ceiling in entry/living room, clever loft stair with pivot point, deep window well) that I thought were really well done.” – Gabriella at TinyHouseBuild.com

Andrew Morrison Shares Tiny House Design Strategies

Designing a tiny house is a little different than designing a conventionally sized home. The process is similar in many ways; however, the need for compact and super efficient design in a tiny home is far greater than in a home that boasts 1000SF or more.

How to Create Extra Storage By Building Box Stairs

I know that many tiny houses today don’t have staircases in them because people opt for ladders instead; however, I don’t think ladders are a great option for several reasons.

How Long Does It Take To Build A Tiny House?

In building our 28′x8’6″ tiny house on a trailer, we have been keeping track of how many hours have gone into each task.

8 Survival Tips For Your Tiny House Build

Having been involved in several construction projects over the last 20 years, I am deeply familiar with the physical and emotional process that happens when building. I liken it to the process of being in labor, something I have experienced twice being a mother of two. As it is with labor, just because I have been through it before doesn’t mean that I have figured it out and that I won’t go through many of the same challenges and frustrations that I have experienced before. When a process is intense, it is easy to forget and draw upon the learnings previously received which is why it is so helpful to have a variety of emotional tools to deal with challenges as they arise.” – Gabriella
