Man Builds $11,800 Lightweight Mobile Micro Camper Cabin (For Sale)

In this post I’m introducing you to Peter Pavlowich and his Terrapin micro turtle campers.

This series is called The Terrapin and it’s a new model of trailer campers he’s created.

They’re inspired by many of the tiny travel trailers from the 1950s and 60s which are great for road trips.

The best part is that you can easily tow these campers because they’re lightweight and compact.

Man Builds Second Tiny Home for just $5200

A Guest Post by Ethan – (Send us your tiny house story)

You might have last heard from me back in October/November about the first tiny home that my girlfriend Kelsey and I built and lived in outside of Austin Texas on an organic farm.

Well since that time my girlfriend and I were asked if we would be interested in selling our house and since I had already been considering building another one…

$695 for a Handmade Micro Travel Trailer (For Sale)

$695 for a Handmade Micro Travel Trailer (For Sale)

Here’s a one of a kind custom built micro travel trailer that you could use for camping or traveling.

It would work sort of like a teardrop camper, only it’s built like a micro cottage instead.

But in order to do that the new buyer would have to perform some renovations on it.

Because it was originally built for a parade and was later used to transport dogs.

Woman Uses Tiny Home in her Backyard as Vacation Rental

Not everyone that’s a tiny house enthusiast can always move into a tiny home.

But that hasn’t stopped some people from building them and using them for something else.

In this case, this woman is using a tiny home that used to be part of a house truck as a revamped vacation rental in her backyard.

So when it gets rented out she gets to earn some money on the side for minimal work.

Students Turn Parking Garage into Tiny House Village: SCADPad

Students Turn Parking Garage into Tiny House Village: SCADPad

When it comes to tiny housing we face several challenges.

Do we park them in backyards and live in them there?

Do we develop our own tiny house communities and villages?

Do we rent currently available RV or trailer lots to live in?

Do we buy our own land where tiny living is allowed?

I believe the answers lie in doing a little bit of each.

The question is: how would you want to do it?

Man Designs Micro Houseboat You Can Build for Cheap

Man Designs Micro Houseboat You Can Build for Cheap

In this post I’m going to show you a micro houseboat that you can probably build.

One of my favorite things about tiny houses, micro cabins, and “alternative” structures is that you can get as creative as you want.

You can build tiny however and wherever you want…

On wheels or on the water (like this micro houseboat).

Up in the trees or underground.

Folks Living the Simple Life in Tiny Cabin in Alaska

I thought I’d share this excellent example of people living simply in a tiny cabin in Alaska.

It’s a simple log cabin with a covered front deck. When you walk inside you’ve got your living area and kitchen.

And upstairs is your sleeping loft with skylights which you’ll get to see down below.

Modern Japanese Home with Smart Toilet and Cabinets

Modern Japanese Home with Smart Toilet and Cabinets

I don’t have the exact details of this modern Japanese home for you but it seems relatively small.

I’d guess it’s about 800 sq. ft. or so but I’m not sure. What I really thought you’d find interesting is:

  • The “Smart” Toilet (it even cleans itself)
  • Space Saving Cabinets (genius cabinet design)
  • The Overall Japanese Style (you’ll see)
