Stay at this beautiful small house in the Hawaiian rainforrest!

Shared by Shannon Victoria Mackey Small but mightily beautiful, this tiny house of 300 sq. feet is not only built in the rainforest on the side of an active Hawaiian Volcano, but it sits 10 feet off the ground allowing the perfect vantage point into the surrounding native flora. The house was built to code, is fixed to the land and uses a water catchment with a sophisticated purification system and natural gas instant water heater. However, it’s the physical design that is the most eye-catching. The floor to ceiling windows draw in the natural light and allow for viewing the […]

The true (and unmentioned) cost savings of living small

My friend and fellow tiny houser, Laura LaVoie of Life in 120 Square Feet, recently wrote a good post expanding on an article that may mislead some about the true cost of tiny houses and small living. Here’s what happened: Laura and I (plus some other tiny house greats, like Lina Menard and Christopher Carson Smith) were contacted by the Lauren Modery (writing for GOOD magazine) for research into tiny house (and tiny living) costs. She asked some great questions about how much our houses cost and what our cost of living was like now that we’ve been living tiny […]

How Sustainable are Tiny Houses?

Tiny houses have their advantages for the environment. Besides their tiny footprint on the land they occupy, a tiny house can definitely help you keep your carbon footprint tiny, too. Many of the creative space-saving and self-sufficient concepts used in the design of tiny houses have sustainability benefits that can be applied to larger homes as well. If you are building a home that is 1000sqft or larger then you could think about hiring a LEED consultant to help you get your home LEED Certified. In case you don’t know, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a rating […]

How much should you spend on tiny house plans?

If you are a person who loves doing internet research, picking up new skills, asking for help, planning and preparing for all that you do, then it’s very conceivable that you could create your own set of tiny house plans for your build. But many people don’t have the time, patience or simply the personality type that would allow them to do all that work themselves. For this reason, a good set of plans is one of the best ways you could SAVE a lot of money (and maybe more importantly, sanity) on your tiny house build. But why is […]

The Benefits of Taking a Tiny House Workshop

Community & Support One of the biggest benefits of attending a tiny house workshop in person is that you get to meet a room full like-minded people all on a similar journey as you. This sense of community, understanding and support is oftentimes one of the most important takeaways from a workshop and usually inspires people to work towards creating physical tiny house communities as well, to bring that supportive feeling into daily life. It is often very inspiring to hear other people’s desires for going tiny, to see their plans in progress, and to help them in way you […]

Learn how to get sponsorship for your tiny house

I want to share with you all an amazing resource for gaining tiny house sponsorship, written by my friend, Andrew Odom.   (scroll down to the bottom of the Tiny r(E)voliution store to find it). History In 2014 Andrew Odom of Tiny r(E)volution was answering questions daily about how he approached sponsorships and how he had managed to get so many sponsors on board of both his personal build and some project builds he had been working on. While he had been answering the questions faithfully he was also working on a book, almost a manual, if you will, that […]

Nature's Head composting toilet for tiny house

The best composting toilets for tiny houses

Waste disposal seems to be a very hot topic in the tiny house world, and I just want to weigh in on what I believe to be the best toilet options. Some people may prefer a traditional flush toilet if they can park where they will have a sewage or septic connection (usually an RV park).  But flush toilets use a lot of water and most tiny housers won’t find parking where sewage disposal is easy or possible. For that reason, the #1 solution for a tiny houses toilet (by far!) is a composting toilet. Incinerating toilets and toilets that shrink-wrap […]
