Rowan’s 192 square foot tiny house cost about $25,000 to complete. It’s 24-feet long, has a big long shed roof, and a porch along one side. While she hired some folks to handle specific tasks, like insulation, and got ample advice from friends and local professionals – but Rowan did most of the work herself.
She moved in before it was finished and celebrated each addition of a new utility, like a stainless sink, propane cookstove, cypress bathtub, and wood stove.

What a great idea, and nicely implemented. It’s a simple copper coil wrapped around a stove pipe. The water in the tank circulates through the copper pipe as a result of convection. A handy way to heat water and temporarily store some heat in the room.

Abel Zyl of Zyl’s Vardos sent me some photos and information on his latest build. A tiny house called the Little Bird which resides in Portland, Oregon. I hope to visit it in October as my daughter is a good friend of the owner, so expect another update then. In the meantime, here are some of the details and some great photos.” -Kent Griswold
Pix is building a tiny house and will use a wood stove for some of her heating. She’s chosen a tiny stove from Salamander Stoves.
“It weighs only maybe 40 lbs and sits upon its own cast iron base. It has a dial on the side for airflow and the whole thing is enameled a deep dynamic blue-teal color. (See pics below of course.) It’s truly the tiniest stove I think you can get for human use. I went to our wood pile and picked out the smallest pieces I could. They didn’t fit. Actually only twigs were small enough, or if I had had some round butts.”
