Jay Shafer Tiny House Workshop with a Field Trip


Thought I would inform you that at Jay Shafer’s upcoming workshop in California this August 10-11, 2013, you’ll get to also go on a tour to see a bunch of tiny houses on a field trip the entire group will be taking.

Little things like that are what make certain workshops special to me, in my opinion. So I wanted to be sure you knew you could have this opportunity to see a variety of little homes on trailers while hanging out with Jay and a bunch of other tiny house enthusiasts.

Sign up for the workshop directly through Jay’s Four Lights Tiny House Company here.

Tiny House Community Display


I shared this announcement with you a few days ago here on how there’s a showcase on display of a tiny house community at the Sonoma County Fair.

I can’t get over how cool it’s going to be when communities like this exist and are available to people like us.

You can get more info on the event at Tumbleweed’s blog and Sonoma County’s Fair website in case you can make it.

Jay’s Four Lights Weller tiny house along with a few other Tumbleweed houses will be on display at the Sonoma County Fair’s Tiny Town on the Green from July 25 – August 11.

“Our Weller house will be on display at the Sonoma County Fair’s Tiny Town on the Green this year (July 25 – August 11). This unique event will celebrate the seasons in a tiny house “village” by observing many of the major holidays, all within the 16 days of the fair. From snow on Christmas to Trick-or-Treating on Halloween, each day will offer a glimpse into what life might look like over a year in a tiny house village.

Attendees of our Tiny House Workshop at the Arlene Francis Center in Santa Rosa (August 10-11) will be taking a field trip to this Tiny House Village at the Sonoma County Fair. This should prove to be an eventful weekend, as we will also be touring Jay Shafer’s own Gifford in west Sonoma County. It’s not too late to join the fun! Bring a friend and save 30%! Click here if you want to sign up for this workshop.” (Source)

If you want to sign up for this workshop led by Jay Shafer it will be a special one because you’ll get to tour his own Gifford tiny house and take a field trip to the Tiny House Village at the Sonoma County Fair.

Tiny Cabin Community in the Mountains


Photo Credit Unknown

This isn’t the most perfect tiny house community but at least it seems like they’ve got the spacing and privacy about right.

I believe this is an actual community in Bulgaria but it can also be a vacation spot, I’m not sure but I had to share the photo with you either way.

I can just see the future of tiny house communities with beautifully designed and well kept little cottages, cabins and homes sharing the same space.

A place where like minded people live together and help each other while maintaining privacy and space for each household.

Tiny Log Cabin Community


Wouldn’t this be an awesome community? The log cabins are a little too close together but I still like the general idea.

I’m sure that this is not an actual community but most likely a vacation spot somewhere. To me it’s just encouraging to see photos like this because they help me imagine what a tiny house community could be like.

And a real tiny house community should have more space in between the houses, wouldn’t you agree? Still a beautiful photo and setting though. And depending on the neighbors, I still might even consider it. How about you?

Colorful Tiny House Community by the Beach

Colorful Beach Cottages

Oh, this really got me excited but it turns out it’s not a tiny house community.

It’s somewhere you can vacation in by the beach (in Summer Point, Rum Cay) and really looks like paradise with the sand creeping towards the houses.

There is a decent amount of space in between each house as well, something that I tend to notice.

Wouldn’t it be great if this was a tiny house community out in some island somewhere you could live for a fair amount of money?

That would totally get me even if it was in a remote unheard of island, as long as I got my family and a tiny house I’m set!

Oh, forgot to mention, having the beach a couple feet away wouldn’t hurt, right?

Small Houses in a Large House Communities?

Small green house exterior with spring blooming trees.

This type of small house is more of my style in a close community basis. First thing I notice is the beautiful spring blooming magnolia trees separating the houses from each other.

The photographer claims the photo was taken in an American community but the photo leaves me wondering if this is one of the only small houses in a normal community or if the other houses are relevant in size.

I like the front yard but I personally would trim some of the bush in order to have more space for myself to walk around or maybe for kids to play. But I still think it’s beautiful.  The long peaceful walkway to the door is perfect for me and I love the round steps leading to the side walk towards the home’s entrance.

This house in particular seems to be around 300-500 square feet but I’m really not sure on that so what would your guess be?

Also, if you look closely past that magnolia tree on the right, you can see the other house which seems to be bigger in size. Just thought I would note that.

I think tiny and small houses should be more welcome in most neighborhoods. Even if the neighbors have much bigger houses. As long as they’re all well kept it should be A-Okay, right?

Elegant Park Model Tiny House Community

Small, tiny houses

What do you think about this park model tiny house community? They’re just too close for me but maybe I just require a little more privacy than most, or do you also agree?

Anyways, first thing I noticed is the bushes separating each house. Looks beautiful at first sight but when I stopped to think about it I thought to myself there’s not that much room to even walk in between each house.

I would enjoy just a little more space to be able to walk in between the bush and your house. Judging by the picture it seems like we’re looking at the back of the house and the door is located on the other side.

They all seem to be of the same model type with the same window on the back. They are very elegant and it’s nice to see a tiny house community no matter how close they are to one another.

Notice the trees and nature surrounding this community. That by itself definitely would put an instant smile on my face if I lived there.

What do you guys think about this tiny house community? Could you imagine yourself living there? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts below and click here if you want to receive information for your tiny house adventures delivered to you by email!

Fairy Tale Cottage & Ideas for a Spacious Community of Tiny Houses

Fairytale House

I just had to share this picture of this tiny fairy tale cottage. I love how it looks like a traditional cottage. It’s just a lot smaller than most.

I would guess that it’s around 150 square feet or less. What would you say?

I also like how there is plenty of open space and landscape around the house. Wouldn’t it be perfect to have a tiny house community like this?

Where there is plenty of space and landscape between houses? And, of course, the homes don’t have to be this tiny. They can be a little bit larger, too.

I come across many more unique little houses that I will be sharing with you everyday, so stay tuned for more and get our tiny house updates via email right here.

Little House Community in Texas Reborn


Alright it’s not really a tiny house community like we hope for everyday.

But I can hope, right? It’s actually somewhere you can vacation in. Unfortunately.

It can be a great thing if you wanted to try out small house living. But if you’re looking for a community like this, we’ve still got work to do.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if we can find more ways to begin re-creating 1950’s style communities just like this?

Where the houses are humble and simple. You can walk places and you know your neighbors.

Two Tiny Houses Better Than One?


More tiny homes by Charles Finn here.

Do you think two tiny homes are better than one for your needs?

Would you be happier with a second small structure?

I would. I’d use the second one as my office to run my business from, write, etc.

This way work is separated from living. Currently I work out of my 500-square-foot apartment.

But how about you? What would you use the second structure/shed for? Would it be an office, art space, or guest house?
