Thank you to everyone for commenting on the Labor Day book giveaway post. We got a record number of comments! It was so nice to hear from all the Tiny House Blog readers on their favorite tiny homes.

She’s a graphic artist and a bluegrass musician who loves simple living and the Tiny House Blog. Her favorite tiny house is a gypsy caravan or gypsy truck. Congratulations Sherri!

      The Fencl has stiff competition these days, and I completely agree with the #1 pick!

      What breaks my heart about the cob house — which is an absolute jewel — is that the owner only uses it as a guest house for friends and family, so no one actually lives in it fulltime.

    This was fun, maybe we will do it again sometime soon, not just once in 3 and a half years. Maybe a free set of plans or something along those lines. I’ll have to talk to some tiny house designers :-)

    Well, I am so excited to have won! I just never win anything!!! And I so love this blog and all the beautiful loved little homes. I know my Moby is kinda towards the large size at 800 sq feet, but that’s no garage or basement and I do have TWO teenagers!!! (And one bathroom, mind you… haha) I just can’t wait too look through these lovely books and get more ideas for my small space! Thanks so much!!
