Kent GriswoldMy name is Kent Griswold and I have developed this blog because of my love of small spaces. I have always dreamed of having a cabin and have done research over the years. Tiny houses have also become an interest to me in the last few years and I have combined my interest in both of these to publish this blog. The Tiny House Blog was established in May of 2007.

The goal of the tiny house blog is to discover the different options available for a person looking to down size into a tiny house or cabin. I will be looking at different type of construction, from logs, to yurts to modern and the unusual. I will also do book reviews, look at alternate energy for heat and electricity. I also want to hear your story so please contact me with your pictures and your own experiences in living simply and small.

I want to encourage feedback and ideas to make this an informative blog. Stories of people who are living this dream. Pictures of tiny houses and cabins, etc. My goal is to publish daily if possible.  I’ve heard a lot of good things about living healthier in the new, downsized arrangement and less worries even with basic family health plans depending which state. Thank you for sharing in this experience with me.

The Tiny House Blog Team

Christina Nellemann is a graphic and web designer, writer and blogger who’s been writing for the Tiny House Blog since 2008. Her work can be seen at Feline Design. Her interest in tiny houses goes back to childhood and an obsession of vardo design and cob houses. She loves to travel around the world searching for tiny houses and goes camping in a yellow teardrop trailer which gets quite a bit of attention on the road.



Kasey March joined Tiny House Blog in April, 2011 as the copy editor. She graduated from the College of New Jersey with a BA in English and minors in Creative Writing and Women & Gender Studies. She recently began a trend spotting, decoration, & DIY blog Buttonwood Cottage (buttonwoodcottage.com). Kasey plans to someday build a strawbale and cob home with her boyfriend, Shane that meets her tiny house needs. When not researching cob building, she is ignored by her cat, Calvin, and adored by her dog, Hobbs, who live with her in southern New Jersey.

    I’m interested in writing for your blog. My husband and I are approximately 2/3 way into a 16×20 shed-to-house conversion, and maybe some people would find our experiences useful. Please let me know if you would like me to write.

  2. I really like your blog and would like to see about getting my yurt cabins into it. I have created a 199 sq ft cabin to take advantage of the permit free size limit in most counties. I just love building these little cabins and I also live in one. I am impressed with the helpful no- nonsense approach of your blog and feel the same way about treating my customers. I hope to get involved with Tiny House Blog soon.

  3. Great blog. I always enjoy reading other peoples experience and hobbies. I am one of your biggest fan.

  4. Hello,

    My family and I love your blog and have been reading it regularly for nearly a year now. We’ve learned a lot and recently decided to build our own off-the-grid tiny cabin up in Southwestern Colorado. We started to realize that there is a great deal of overlap between the Tiny House movement and the Off-the-Grid movement, as well as the Survivalists, Preppers and Homesteaders. So we finally decided to open up our project to other Tiny Cabin/Off-the-Grid enthusiasts. We’re in the final stages of finishing own own model tiny cabin and will be building more soon with the intention of selling them and renting a 5,000 square foot area to place them on our property. I’d love the opportunity to share photos and information about our project, which we’re calling Hidden Meadows Colorado, on the Tiny House Blog. I could even write an article for you about some of the innovative off-the-grid technologies and design concepts we’re using in our cabins.
