Beautiful tiny house built from the Tiny Project plans

I wanted to share a wonderful example of someone who built a tiny house from the Tiny Project House Plans. It’s so great to see how others adapt the original design to create something truly beautiful and original. Jodi Frost-McKinnon in Lake Placid, NY has done an amazing job adapting the plans to her climate and customizing the house with fine materials and art, for a lovely interior AND exterior! So well done! The following images and words are from Jodi. Here’s what she says: We purchased your plans and are building it (with a few adjustments for our climate). […]

The best tiny house trailer manufacturers & how to choose

Choosing the right trailer to start your tiny house build is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. When I started my house there was no such thing as a tiny house trailer.

Tiny House Stoves, Cooktops & Ranges

There are many options for cooking in a tiny house. If you are not opposed to using propane in your house (and are already using it for an on-demand, tankless water heater) I highly recommend cooking with propane gas. Propane is far more efficient than electricity for any heating element and in most cases leads a better cooking experience. Propane can be used in smaller RV-style ranges, marine ranges (higher quality stainless steel), permanently installed stovetops and portable cooktops. If you prefer to use electricity, one efficient solution would be to use a portable induction cooktop, which can be stored […]
