A sweet little tiny house that is inspiring.  Cute young couple embracing this new way to do things.  You can find them on the web here.  Below is a little tour on YouTube.  Looking forward to subscribing to their channel.


Video | Tiny House | Inside The ProtoHaus + Mobile Office Build

Friday, March 7th, 2014

I think I want to “paint out” my Tiny House to an “off-white” colour from finding a picture on Tumblr of a Tiny House that was painted out. I’ve discovered the two people who live in that house in the States and have some other pictures to share of inside their home.

Even though my Tiny House will be about 578 sq feet… this little one is about 125 sq ft on the main floor (not including the loft).

Ann Holley wanted to create an off-grid, transportable tiny house that would be technically an RV, but with an aesthetic that wouldn’t feel like living in an RV. What she created with her partner Darren Macca is a 125-square-foot “stick built” home with a cedar exterior and a refreshing and expanding all-white interior.

The ProtoHaus has proven to be a truly portable home, making several cross country journeys. The couple originally built the home during a summer on her parents’ property in Colorado. They then drove it 1,500 miles to Alfred, New York where they lived in it for a year while Holley was in grad school. Then they drove it back to Colorado where they parked it on a traditional lot in Longmont, Colorado.

Could you live in a Tiny House? Could you try and live with less and try and have a bigger life?

Below is a little video taken before all of the finishing touches were added. The cost for this house was $25,000

Video below of inside the ProtoHaus. I find it neat to watch the videos to get a better understanding of what it will be like living in one.  I’m going to use Goodlife Fitness for the “Three S’s”… but there are so many options to consider.

 

For their next project they wanted to create a tiny “flexible space”, something that could function as a guest house or a mobile office. The ProtoStoga just 40 square feet and it’s design is “a hybrid between a Gypsy Vardo, Airstream-esque Trailer, Conestoga Wagon and a Shepherd Hut”. At under 1,500 pounds (the Protohaus is 9,500), Macca can tow it with his 4 cylinder car and often uses it to cut his commute. He leaves it in a park across from his work and instead of commuting home, he camps out in it.

Cool Little Tumbleweed Cottage | 600 Sq. Ft. | Could You Live In This?

Take a tour of this adorable 600 square foot home in Little Rock, customized from Tumbleweed Whidbey plans.

They might have the smallest house on the block, but one thing’s for sure: Lyndsey and Tom’s tiny cottage packs a lot of punch! As you float through the entrance, prepare yourself to be enthralled by a plethora of eclectic decor. From the vibrant couch pillows to the cozy lofted workspace, these tiny housers have created a feast for the eyes in this lovable little shelter.

Notice how the white paneling elongates the room, while a clever use of storage gives the couple’s home a wide open feel. “Little House in Little Rock” is colorful, quirky, and classy all at the same time. As Lyndsey describes her house in detail, with materials partly coming from salvaged resources, it’s obvious that this tiny houser has a special connection with her abode. A bond that only few home owners will ever know. That’s truly the spirit of tiny living!

The house glows as sunlight beams through a multitude of windows and skylights. Storage was a priority for the couple, and the house has no shortage of cubbies and shelves. But the space that really steals the show, is the couple’s gorgeous open kitchen.

At Tumbleweed we’re always amazed at what “build-it-yourselfers” can do with our plans.

Our homes come in two categories:

  1. Our “House To Go” is on wheels and range from 117 to 172 square feet. 
  2. Our “Cottages” (shown here) are built on foundations and range from 261 to 884 square feet

After seeing Lyndsey and Tom’s customizations, we felt inspired! One of our Whidbey layouts now reflects their idea of an open kitchen, which we absolutely adore!

While the average home is triple its size, “Little House in Little Rock ” perhaps has the bigger heart. Thanks to Lyndsey and Tom for inviting us into their charming home and for inspiring us with their tremendous creativity.
