258 Sq. Ft. Maringotka Modern Wagon Tiny House



258 Sq. Ft. Maringotka Modern Wagon Tiny House

~
This is a modern version of a traditional wagon tiny house called the Maringotka designed by Miramari Design in Prague.

It’s a wonderful design that you can use to live simply in full-time but you can also use it to build an affordable vacation home or even to create a fun hotel where people can try out alternative living spaces.

Unlike most tiny homes on wheels this one isn’t really made to legally be towed on public roads, although it can quite easily be moved by hiring a company to do it for you.

The modern caravan offers 258 sq. ft. of space inside and Miramari Design offers two different floor plans. When you go inside you’ll find a full kitchen, bathroom, sleeping platform, dining area, and more. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below.

Bigger Trailers for Bigger Tiny Houses on Wheels



Bigger Trailers for Bigger Tiny Houses on Wheels

~
This morning I opened an e-mail from one of our readers, Mrs Tiny Lady, regarding the possibility of bigger trailers for bigger tiny house s on wheels (in case you might be interested in that). 🙂

In it she included several links to diagrams of larger trailers versus the more usual flat bed trailers we use for building tiny homes.
Maybe you need more space because of your family, your hobbies, or your work/business. But you still want the mobility of a tiny house and the benefits that go along with them.

How about these 18 wheeler tractor trailers? They’re normally meant for big loads, moving tractor trailers, and other heavy duty equipment. What if we were to build a ‘tiny’ house on one of these? It’s a great way to get more space and eliminate the need for lofts while still remaining mobile.

224 Sq. Ft. Tiny House on Wheels



224 Sq. Ft. Tiny House on Wheels
~
In June 2014, Shelley and Joshua, a young couple from Northern California decided to drastically downsize their lives and with a custom built tiny house on wheels. Just recently their tiny home and story was featured in Issue 27 of the Tiny House Magazine.
Their 224 sq. ft. home is now a marvel to see and features a main room, kitchen with plenty of counter space (which includes an espresso bar) and floating stairs that bring you up to their loft bedroom. The home also features a bathroom with a full walk-in shower and a washer/dryer combo unit. Nice, right? Well, wait until you see it!

The exterior has a portable deck and storage area to keep the items that can’t fit into their tiny living quarters safe. One of my favorite parts is the outdoor bar area, which sits 6-8 people! The bar was designed to be folded down during transit and is really a great focal point, not to mention amazing for entertaining.

Even though the tiny home seems like it’s completely finished, the couple stresses that they still have some modifications and additions to make. Whether complete or not, this tiny house on wheels is pretty spectacular. Please enjoy and re-share below. Thank you.

250 Sq. Ft. Backyard Tiny Guest House



250 Sq. Ft. Backyard Tiny Guest House

~
This 250 sq. ft. tiny guest house in Oakland, California is a guest post by John Olmsted of New Avenue Homes

Travis and Kelly approached New Avenue back in February 2013 to discuss adding an accessory dwelling to the backyard of their Oakland, CA home. This 250 square foot casita is intended as a guesthouse and office.

Construction took about 5 to 6 months and began at the end of 2013. Some challenges to this project included poor access to the backyard, a very sloped lot, and older utilities which lead to a replaced water line. Just as the the work came to completion in June 2014, Travis and Kelly adopted a baby. Now they take turns working from home two days a week in their backyard office so they can spend quality time with the newest member of their family.

When family and friends are in town to see the new baby or if Travis and Kelly are entertaining and hosting a get-together, they offer their casita as a small home away from home for overnight guests. It has a fully functioning bathroom and working washer dryer. When the family is away, it serves as a residence for their dog-sitter.

120 Sq. Ft. Tiny House on Wheels For Sale

~
This tiny house on wheels for sale is a guest post by Michael & Grace – share yours here!

This unique tiny portable studio was built as an additional bedroom but it can be used as an office, guest room, meditation nook, massage studio, vacation rental, or personal living space. It’s perfect for someone who wants privacy or their own inspirational space but doesn’t want the hassle of obtaining a permit to build. It was built by an incredibly gifted craftsman. Materials were carefully hand picked. We used it on our farm as our bedroom. It was nestled alongside the river during summer. We ran an extension cord from our barn for electricity. It was a wonderful relaxing retreat. Many people refer to our small space as a “sanctuary.” It’s a beauty.

This 8×16 handcrafted portable studio (120 square feet) sits sturdy on a double axle flatbed trailer made for us by Leonard. Non toxic products were selected and used for the inside from start to finish. We used all local wood. Poplar floors, handcrafted maple door with stain glass, non toxic insulation, american clay plaster walls (the plastered walls gives the studio a warm feeling), ceiling fan, cathedral ceilings, small loft for storage, passive solar energy efficient “Serious” Windows, wall electric heater, beautiful lighting features and excellent air flow with a window of each wall. Easy to hook up anywhere 110/120.

Young Family Build $7k Tiny Cabin in 2 Weeks



Young Family Build $7k Tiny Cabin in 2 Weeks

~
Wow! A mere $7,000 to build a weekend getaway destination in just two weeks!? Almost unbelievable, and certainly amazing!

Tammy and John built this tiny, 180 square foot tiny cabin (with the help of a friend) to use for weekend trips with their two small children and dog. The cabin itself is obviously very small, but many features make it appear more open, such as translucent corrugated fiberglass panels and an attached deck and yard for the children and dog to play.
The plans John chose to build the cabin were actually inspired by designs for sheds! The costs were kept at a minimum, due to bargain-hunting, homemade curtains and bed linens, and even trash-can diving! I think you’ll agree that the cabin is truly a work of love and partnership!
