This tiny guest house by Bungalow to Go offers 120 square feet of living space permanently attached to a 16′ 10,000 pound capacity utility trailer.
This guest house has an open great room that allows flexibility for ground floor sleeping. The split loft design leaves a cathedral ceiling open in the main room, an 8′ loft that comfortably fits a queen size mattress, and a 4′ wide loft at the front suited for storage or a twin size mattress for smaller guests. A nook in the front offers a great view and a convenient place for an office with recessed task lighting and handy internet, cable, USB, and power outlets. Spalted maple laminate floors and smooth finished drywall interior walls painted with a soft cream yellow matte finish paint are lit by ten dual paned insulated vinyl windows with screens. Stylish Edison bulbs in pendant light fixtures and glossy oyster white trim details impart a classic style.

I designed it to be a no-compromise Tiny House. I wanted to make a Tiny House that avoided many of the issues typically associated with them. I wanted high ceilings, so it has 8-10 foot ceilings throughout. I wanted plenty of space, so I maxed out the dimensions allowed for a trailer and then nearly doubled the square footage by installing a large retractable deck and awning. I wanted plenty of storage, so I installed a closet, 64 cubic feet of storage and a large modular shelving system. I wanted plenty of workspace, so I gave it an 8 foot desk and plenty of outlets. And I wanted it to perform like an ordinary house, so it has heating and cooling, full insulation, standard house wiring, an instant hot water heater and a large kitchen. In addition, I did not want to have to climb into a cramped loft to sleep, so the sofa slides out from under the kitchen and becomes the bed.
What I have created is, what I think, the least compromising Tiny House I’ve seen. I planned on living in it, however, I have moved to New York City and no longer can.

Named after a simple, yet valuable commodity throughout history, Spice Box Homes is the vision of Colorado residents, Edwin Lindell and Chris Curry. They wanted their tiny house company to reflect their own love of the outdoors and concern for environmental impact, and felt that they could create a similar commodity through building, living, and educating.
Spice Box homes started in 2010 as an alternative to renting. When Edwin was finishing up college in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, he got tired of paying rent and decided to construct a tiny home on a trailer that could be moved every six months.
“Chris Curry, my business partner, had built a similar dwelling for himself a few years back to combat the same issues, just not on a trailer.” Edwin said. “Once our prototype was constructed and tested for seven months, we decided to hit the ground running to build a company, lifestyle, and adventure for our community, friends, and our environment. We work to construct custom homes that resemble our clientele and create better living patterns.”
The homes are built from reclaimed materials and include passive solar heating and efficient appliances. The company subcontracts all the electrical, plumbing, metal stud fabrication, insulation and roofing to ensure quality construction. Continue Reading »
My friend Jenine Alexander who just happens to live in the same town as I do is selling her tiny home. A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to watch Jenine build this unique home. Janine’s home is built mainly of reclaimed wood and other materials. You can view a post on the beginning of her build here. An update on the tiny house by clicking here, an open house here, and several videos at this link.
Jenine’s life has changed and she is needing to raise funds for a business she and her partner are going into. Jenine hopes to build another tiny home at some later time but for now needs to part with her tiny home. Here is the information on the house. I have also posted a few pictures and a video so you see it here.

For anyone who is looking for an affordable, modern style frame for a tiny house, ala Cabin Fever, take a look at the Aston Shed by Yardline and Costco. From now until November 11, this shed will be on sale for $1,000 which includes delivery. The shed is 10 feet by 7.5 feet and Costco is selling it as a storage shed or as a small office or living space.
The shed weighs about 1,100 lbs, is 9 feet high at the front peak and contains three transom windows and a 64 inch double door. The front deck shown is not included, but it looks like it might expand the house nicely if you were to build it yourself. Heck, at this price, I would buy two of these sheds and put them next to each other.
The structure comes delivered pre-cut and includes 2×4 construction, a sold wood floor, pre-hung doors with piano hinges and wall vents. There is also a 15 year warranty. The shed will take two people about two days to complete with a hammer, cordless drill and screwdriver. The owner will need to supply their own caulking., interior and exterior paint and roof felt and shingles
Costco and Yardline recommend checking your local building codes before ordering and they don’t deliver this particular shed to Florida at this time.
