The Lobster Pod was created not so much for tiny living but instead for people who work at home and want a backyard studio/office. It was also created for camping and vacation experiences. But even though it wasn’t intended for tiny living, it can definitely be used for it if one wanted to, right? How would you customize this little lobster pod to make it the perfect little house for yourself?

Modern Tiny Solar Thoreau Cabin







I thought you’d also enjoy this modern day version of a Thoreau cabin. No amenities just pure and simple. A micro cabin to sleep and write in. Personally I’d love to spend some time with myself in something like this. Maybe even use that time to write, reflect and plan. How about you? This would also be really cool to have in your current backyard if you’re allowed to. It’s pretty stealthy too. Looks like a tiny barn shed for storage. More info on this modern day solar cabin here.

Tiny Cabin Kit with a Loft

Micro Cabin with Loft

This micro cabin has a 12 x 12 footprint but is still considered under 100 sq. ft. for permitting purposes since the enclosed space is just 8 x 12. And you’d still have the upstairs sleeping loft to work with that actually seems like it would be pretty spacious especially with the windows int he design.

More info and photos are available here. Pricing for the kit is around $19k. Or you can buy the plans and DIY.

Mighty Sheds and Cabanas Gable Style Tiny House




The folks over at Mighty-shed seem to have perfected making tiny structures for people. They build sheds and cabanas for people who use them for various purposes.

This is their Gable Style design which is 200 square feet and features a front roof extension.

Did you know your local county building authority allows accessory 
buildings to be constructed with out a permit. The most common size max. is 200 sq.ft.(12×16) as dictated by the International Building Code. 12’x16’ structures come in under the 200 sq.ft. threshold allowing you the ability to have a large multi purpose structure constructed in your back yard or on your vacation property. Some areas allow more. Most people do not realize that they are allowed this benefit. Mighty Cabanas & Sheds can show you how to take advantage of this opportunity to broaden your lifestyle.

I really love that Mighty-shed, based out of Renton, WA, is giving people solutions to the problems you can run into with building permits when trying to simplify our lives.

Little Yellow Cottage

Check out this cool little cottage surrounding by a fresh well groomed garden.

Looks like a real peaceful getaway in the forest somewhere.

I would love having this on my property to enjoy nature and the beautiful little cottage.

Most likely it’s just a garden shed, but it really could make for a great livable tiny house with a little TLC.

It looks to be around 150-200 square feet to me, what would you say?
