9 things you need to safely tow, park, and level a tiny house

Many factors are involved in safely towing a tiny house on wheels. Most important, of course, is the design of the house itself. This post will focus on specific safety items and tools you’ll need to tow and park a house, and will touch on some important design considerations as well. I’ve already written extensively, describing in detail my two long towing trips (2,000 miles each) and everything I did to prepare. Please read the two posts below as well to get all the details not included in this post. Towing a Tiny House (from California to Texas) Our Tiny […]

Locating land for Tiny Houses and other parking options

By John Russell One of the most common questions I hear centers around where people can live in tiny houses legally.

But I wanted to write a quick update. Before I forget, here’s visual proof of tiny homes taking over the world. We were passed by a Tumbleweed home somewhere in New Mexico or Arizona. Totally crazy event and so happy Ani was quick enough with the phone-cam to capture it! As you may know from my last post, the first half of our journey out West […]
