Natural-Build Tiny House For Family With Separate Office and Kids Bedroom


If you’re a young family who want to move into a tiny house, this could be the perfect design for you! Built with the modern family in mind, this home is constructed to be completely non-toxic, using natural materials and has been designed to include a separate room for the kids as well as a private home office space.

Bryce’s videos just keep getting better and better. This is one of the first tiny house videos I’ve seen that carefully addresses the various issues of natural building – low toxicity, good air quality, insulation, etc. Good job. I encourage the builder Ben Garratt of Tiny Healthy Homes to write a book.

School Bus Converted To Incredible Off-Grid Home


“This family is hitting the road and doing it in style! They have converted a simple school bus into an unbelievably comfortable home. The entire bus is designed to be off-the-gird giving them perfect freedom to roam wherever they choose.”

The interior is very nice. Like Bryce says, it doesn’t even look or feel like you’re in a bus. They pretty much did a total rebuild — raised the roof 20”, reduced the number of windows, fantastic kitchen, etc. This video has already had nearly 3 million views in just a few months, so obviously there are lots of people interested in school bus conversions.

Tiny Houses for Retirement


Here’s another advantage to tiny house living: due to the low cost of tiny houses you can pay off the home fairly quickly and be mortgage free in your retirement years. I found two interesting videos on this topic so I’ve combined them into one blog post.

“Single Mother Builds Tiny House to Create Retirement Plan:
Michelle ” MJ” Boyle is a mother of two and as her kids were coming of age she realized she had no plan for retirement. Michelle built a tiny house so that she can have an affordable place to live.”

Luxury Tiny House – No Mortgage Retirement:
Super beautiful interior design. “Ray, a 57-year-old engineer, spent two years building a Tiny House with innovative slide-outs so that he can retire without a mortgage and age comfortably in the space.”

This design would be expensive and difficult to build. I’m showing it mostly because of the interior design. It looks like a custom home in many ways. Some may consider it overly extravagant, but it’s 100 times more efficient than the typical suburban home. This type of design may very well convert thousands of people to ditch their big homes and downsize.

Incredible Tiny House Cafe Is A True Work Of Art


“Beautiful to behold, this spectacular tiny house cafe is a remarkable specimen of skilled labour and artistic vision.

Chantal and Mike are a truly dynamic duo, one with a dream of starting a boutique coffee shop and the other with a zeal for eco-tiny house building. When these unique passions were combined to create Le Bon cafe, a wonderful and rare work of functional art was the result.”
