SIXTEEN tiny houses, A-frames, Huts, Art Studios….An eye candy photo gallery

Every once in awhile, I look through my photo archives and realize "Man, I have a lot of photos I've never used", so I then put together a fun, photo gallery, such as this one, where many of these shots I've taken of cabins, tiny houses, A-frames, and huts, get to see the light of day. So Enjoy, and may you get some inspiration, or a few ideas from these!
    Also, check out our fb page on Tiny Houses, and DIY projects-
And details on our upcoming HANDS-ON building and design workshop in Memphis, TN- April 11-13th, 20141 I can't wait!!!

My Book….


  1. We just bought a new washer and gave our 4 year old grandson the box to play with. He slept in it last night his mother said. I laughed and thought of the tiny house movement, so I shared this site to his Mom's phone. I'm sure the magic markers will come out now.

  2. I have a question for all you "Tiny House" Veterans?
    I currently live alone in a 2-room apt. and 'love' small, cozy spaces!
    I live in the Kansas City, Mo. metro area and would like to stay within around a (50+) or so mile radius do to my Drs because I am on disability. So of course thus meaning I also have an extremely limited ($716.00) per month Total! Seriously!
    However, I can't give up on my Dream, I just can't!
    I have Never, owned a home of my own, I have spent my entire life working and raising kids.
    I just want my "very own place"
    I don't care if it's made out of a Shack, if it's livable, and I can own the land/spot it sits on...I want it!
    Oh, Did I forget to mention I don't own a vehilce?
    My ex-husband took it when I started having Seizures :(
    Anyway, God Bless Anyone and Everyone willing to help me Find My Shack to live in :)

  3. PLEASE!!! / NO-REALTORS!!!!
    Oh sorry my email is
