This micro A-frame cabin / bunkhouse has 9 beds inside! It’s a shelter for mountain climbers and hikers. It’s built to support heavy snow loads and if you wanted can be dismantled and stored during the harsh winters. Everything is prefabricated and delivered to the site via helicopter. It was put together by 12 people.

The V House is a vacation experience in Mexico with views of the ocean at Yelapa Bay.
It’s on the Verana property and there are 3 available micro cabins.
I just think it would be awesome to have this style of structure on my own piece of property as an alternative to a treehouse.

The Looper is a portable lightweight travel pod inspired by the caterpillar by a company called Nomadic Resorts.
It’s made of a lightweight fabric that’s stretched over a wooden frame.
Each segment folds out and inside you’ll find a bathroom, sleeping area, changing area, patio deck, and even a micro office.
And it has air conditioning. With the push of a button the roof opens up to bring the outside in without having to leave.
Even better, the pod is equipped with a solar canopy to power your lights and air conditioning.
It doesn’t stop there.. The little mobile structure also collects rainwater and recycles it for you so you can take hot solar powered showers.
This little structure is so flexible it can be built in the desert, on a floating deck, or anywhere else you might think of.

Video Explanation of How the HIVEHAUS Works
The Hivehaus is a flat pack prefab tiny housing solution that seems pretty easy to build.
Since it’s a modular system it means you can customize as many or as few modules to your desire.
The cells are hexagonal so there’s lots of flexibility when it comes to designing and building your own.
The Hivehaus is inspired by a bee’s honeycomb, hence the name 🙂

Big thanks to one of our readers Spencer for sending this small mountain cottage by TKP Architects in. Not tiny, but still small, and absolutely gorgeous. At just 450 square feet, I’m amazed at what they were able to do with this.

If the interior of this tiny cube house is confusing, don’t worry, I was pretty baffled by it myself until I read the description.
It has three floors, so when you first walk in you have to take the stairs to the first floor.
That’s where you have the living room with TV and the kitchen.
Go up another level and you have the bedroom.
On the top floor there’s even an area with a 360 degree view!
More info, photos and booking calendar if you want to vacation in the cubehouse here.
At some point in my life, I’m going to make it a point to make it here! I’d LOVE to stay in this house. How about you?

Lots of people use vans like these for van dwelling. But you can do so much more with it.. Like this guy. He built a mobile art studio so he can paint anywhere he wants. He basically just added carpet, a sunroof and a few other necessary items for his painting.
For me, I think it’d be awesome to create a mobile office with Internet connection where I can write, blog about tiny houses and just read and relax.
What would you use one for?

“Designed like an umbrella perched on the side of a mountain, the vaulted ceilings and glass walls let you feel like you are floating in the trees with the hummingbirds and finches! Artsy and modern yet woodsy and rustic, this is a fantastic escape from fast paced DC or Richmond city life.” (source)

This couple purchased the travel trailer so that they could completely re-do it. It was pretty banged up as you could see (especially the inside). But just shows what you could do with something that already exists. Just takes time, patience, a little bit of money, and lots of labor.
They completely gutted it and rebuilt it from scratch and I think they did an amazing job. They even rented a garage just so they can do this. Read the complete and original story with even more photos here. It was later put up for sale as you can see here.

To me small houses like this are perfect for families.
I just know that modern designs like these are not very affordable but at least once built they are efficient, easy to maintain and have a relatively small footprint in comparison to McMansions.
And what if they were built for the masses? Wouldn’t they become more and more affordable then? I think so.
My wish is that developers would provide more housing like this because the truth is it’s just easier to get an oversized house (they’re everywhere). AND they’re cheaper.
It’s a shame that in most of today’s communities and neighborhoods you wouldn’t even be able to build out a floor plan like this because it’s less than 1200 sq. ft.
I consider 667 sq. ft. designs like this one to be McMansion killers because if they were widely available and easy to finance lots of people would actually choose them over 2400 sq. ft. cookie cutter homes.

I’m just so impressed with this teardrop trailer tiny home because it has so many useful features packed into a small and aerodynamic package which makes it great for those of us who want to use our build for traveling. For me I’ve always wanted to adventure with a tiny house on wheels but I soon realized that it’s sort of impractical because they’re heavy and huge compared to travel trailers. But here’s a solution that works and you can still get that homemade wood/cabin feel that’s so attractive with tiny stick built homes on trailers.
See more pics, learn more, and see how it was built over at the builder/owners blog.

The dimensions are approximately 18′ x 15′ so it has just a 270 sq. ft. footprint and of course more living space than that because of the upstairs loft. More info and pics are available here.

I just love this style of cabin because it’s a mashup of a cottage, log cabin and barn all in one. And not tiny, but small and still very spacious. Looks like it would be a really awesome place to have out in nature somewhere on your own land.
