Tiny House Giant Journey and Deek

Giant Journey

Hey, Deek from www.Relaxshacks.com here.

This past weekend while teaching a tiny house design class (Tumbleweed) down in Philadelphia (and after having one of the larger slices of pizza I’ve EVER seen- Lorenzo’s) I was given a short tour of Guillaume and Jenna’s gorgeous tiny house on wheels- one making a trek around the entire US (and Maritime Canada) as we speak. Right now they’re somewhere in the vicinity of NYC, so keep an eye out! They’re pretty hard to miss if you’re on the highway.

Anyway, here’s a full video of their house. The place has so many inventive space saving solutions, and clever decor and design approaches, that you’re bound to glean some new ideas from it, regardless of your personal tastes.

Its 20′ long, 8′ 6″ wide, and 13′ 4″ tall. The so far have pulled it over 3000 miles… and they’ve just begun!

PS- October 25th-26th I’ll be having a very small/intimate Relaxshacks.com Tiny House Building and Design workshop near Boston…. we’re limiting this one to 15 attendees, and that’s it! We’ll be doing LOTS of hands-on building

Hob-Nobbin from Hobbitat Spaces

A day in the life of our friend Colin. From a hob to the great outdoors of Garrett County and back. Not too shabby. This 425 square foot cabin is eco friendly, featuring recycled heart pine from the Carnegie Railroad shed. See different models and looks at our website hobbitatspaces.com. Or go see 13 different Hobs in person at Blue Moon Rising in McHenry, Maryland. A special thanks to everyone at Blue Moon Rising, Moon Shadow Cafe, and Colin Ware Hob-Nobbin from Hobbitat Spaces on Vimeo. interior of cabin

Big Sky Retreat Yurt

Scott Evans shared his Big Sky Retreat in a post on the Tiny House Blog a year or so ago. His 17 year old son Red Evans recently filmed an excellent video on the retreat that I wanted to share with you.

The yurt building is mainly constructed out of scrap scaffold boards, pallets and timber from the builders merchants. It cost around £10,000 (about $15,979) not including labour time. Please visit the previous post here for more of the story. Also visit Canopy and Stars website and if you are on Facebook you can follow their page here.
