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.

You may remember Pepper Clark from our posts about her work on the Towhee or the Priya. Though she’s honored and excited to work for Tumbleweed Tiny House Company teaching workshops, she and Dylan Pankow are still bringing their unique skillset to the community with a new project from Bungalow to Go. After hearing many requests for it from tiny house fans, they’re planning to launch a live building education experience and they’re looking for feedback from the community.
Their idea is to present the sequential process of building a tiny house live, in person, in a similar format to cooking shows. First they would show you the materials involved and discuss terminology and theory. You’d watch the crew set up and perform some of the work in front of you, then see the project in a half completed state. Each section would wrap with up a Q&A session. It would be a seven day series, with a day devoted to each of the major segments of the building process. Attendees could sign up for individual days, or take the entire series at a lower daily rate.
Their questions are:
- Would you be interested in taking this workshop?
- If not, what format would you like to see?
- If yes, which parts of the building process would you be most interested in seeing?
- How far would you be willing to travel for this experience?
Because of insurance costs, having guests participate hands on makes this kind of event much more challenging and expensive. Would it be more compelling if there were some parts you physically did yourself, even if it only involved hand tools?
Pepper and Dylan want to serve up the best possible learning experience, and would be grateful to hear answers to these questions or any other input or ideas you may have.
The summer camping season is starting to heat up and for those Tiny House Blog visitors who are lamenting the loss of the tiny Retro Traveler, the Toad Camper is a nice and affordable alternative to the ultra lightweight trailer. Toad Campers are built by hand in North Carolina with the best American-made products and can be towed by most 4-cylinder vehicles. What I thought was a typo, was that the campers start out at $2,999 for a basic streamlined weekend trailer.
The company offers four basic models: the Micro, Micro XL, Tadpole, and 20-foot Bull Frog. Each of these models have very flexible floor plan arrangements including small bathrooms with showers, full or queen beds or bunk beds. They also come with the following features:
- Heavy duty axle with bearing buddies
- Insulated frame
- 13″ Radial tires
- Laminate flooring
- Various color choices
- Microwave, refrigerator, air conditioner and flat-screen TVs
- Wash station or full kitchen
- Central roof vent
- Durable rubber roof
The Toad Camper company also offers their trailers as rentals so you can test drive their different sized options. They also build custom trailers for just about any other kind of use including kayak trailers, refreshment trailers and restroom trailers. Continue Reading »

I’ve been following your blog since November when I finally moved into my own tiny house on wheels (136 sq. feet) on Whidbey Island, Washington. I started blogging about, downsizing (‘right-sizing’, as I refer to it), tiny living and on-going improvements in October.
Since January, I’ve attended a Tumbleweed workshop and, more recently the PAD’s La Casa Pequena workshop in McMinnville. I’m in the process of deciding the next step in tiny building, teaching and consulting. Here are a couple of full moon shots I took of my wee house. Thought one of them might fit will under the ‘tiny house in a landscape’ theme.
Thanks for all you do. The tiny house blog is truly invaluable.

I am part of a team of people from Monmouth University building a program known as THRIVE (Towns for Healing and Rehabilitation in Interactive Village Ecologies.)
We are working to create an alternative for about 80 homeless people living in tents (Tent City, Lakewood). Unfortunately, they must soon leave and will only have a homeless shelter to go to for one year and then they are on their own with no facilities available.
We want to create a sustainable community where these people together can build micro-homes and learn to live in a holistic life style.
We want to partner with whatever appropriate, likeminded caring people/groups will support this endeavor, such as Habitat for Humanity, various school programs that initiate sustainable farming, Home Depot which teaches home maintenance, and finally proponents of tiny homes that would like to make a difference in the lives of these people.
What better way to empower homeless people than to give them the opportunity to build their own homes and build their own community!
To what extent would you like to be a part of this ranging from simple suggestions, sharing contacts, ongoing communication, educating, etc.?
Here is a website about Tent City, and here also is a slide show (video) that I created. As idyllic as it may look, it is very difficult in the winter and they will not be permitted to live in these tents much longer.
(The pile of wood chips shown in the slide show were placed there by the town to make it more difficult for people to donate food to the homeless people. The county has since enforced removal.)
