Tiny House in a Landscape

The first post I published on the Tiny House Blog was about Montana Mobile Cabins. This company continues to be a favorite of mine seven years later and I like to bring you updates and photos of their projects every now and again.

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape features Montana Mobile Cabins 12 x 16 foot studio cabin. A simple cabin design with a big covered front porch.

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape features a cargo container designed home called the Port-a-Bach. The Port-a-Bach prototype was built in Hangzhou, China and shipped to New Zealand. It is now part of the permanent collection of Puke Ariki Museum, New Plymouth.

Designed to be a holiday home it is built by Atelierworkshop it is portable, secure, has a high-level finish, designed to be environmentaly clean, comparatively inexpensive, and comfortably sleeps two adults and two children.

It has the potential to be a comfortable tiny house alternative if you choose.

Tiny House In a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is of a Park Model Home located at Windmill Cove in Central California. A park model seems to be ideal as a tiny living space for two people. My wife and I are in the process of downsizing and looking for a new place to live and I wonder if this could be an option.

I love the idea of a park model around 400 square feet with a full size bedroom, a small kitchen and living area. Really all a person needs to live comfortably. Unfortunately as far as I have been able to learn park models are restricted to resorts with full hookups and can’t be put on your own land and lived in full time. So to enjoy one you must purchase or rent one in a resort and pay monthly rent for the land. If you know differently please let me know. Popular park model builders are Cavco, Athens, ideabox, and Wheelhaus.
