Creating a Tiny House Floor Plan

Creating a Tiny House Floor Plan

Designing your perfect tiny home can be the most exciting part of starting your tiny home journey. As exciting as the design process is, it will still take a lot of planning and execution to make sure your space is functional for you and your family.

Tiny Home Heritage: Experience Life

Tiny Home Heritage: Experience Life

Okay. So I admit I’m a terrible blogger; I can’t write regular posts, or even semi-regular ones. I get an itch to write something, and maybe I make a note of it on my phone, and then I never open my computer and actually write. It’s the reason why it took me ten years to finish my first novel, and why I’ve been working on […]

HAVE YOU PUT DIRT IN THE TOILET LATELY? (AND OTHER THINGS YOU DON’T HEAR LIVING IN A “NORMAL” HOUSE)

HAVE YOU PUT DIRT IN THE TOILET LATELY? (AND OTHER THINGS YOU DON’T HEAR LIVING IN A “NORMAL” HOUSE)

If you read any Tiny Home blog, you will eventually run into the all-important toilet question. It’s quite valid, and worthy of serious research and consideration.

YOU CAN’T DO THAT IN A TINY HOME! CAN YOU?

Can you do that (whatever that is; fill in the blank) in a Tiny Home? Well, probably. You just need to be a little creative about it. For instance: You can live quite happily with a family of five in a Tiny Home. You can have a sense of space in a Tiny Home. You can fit the necessities for life in a Tiny Home. You can have […]

MORE HISTORY, AND SOME DESIGN CONCEPTS

MORE HISTORY, AND SOME DESIGN CONCEPTS

When last I wrote about how we wound up living in our Tiny Home, I left off when we had finally drawn up plans (my husband has always been good with plans) and begun building our Tiny Home. We decided we were building a prototype. We wanted to see if “normal” people could do this. I mean ̶ sure, our kids are cute (they get […]
