Here is a tiny house I saw recently while I was traveling in the Sierras in California. No one lives in it. It’s built right into the side of a cliff. I don’t know that it was ever inhabited actually and might have been some kind of utility shed for the river. Nearby they route to the lower valley for water. It was padlocked, but otherwise looked intact.
Have a great day, Jennifer Nicholson

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape includes some photographs take by Linda Lacy from California. Linda says: I took these photos at Malakoff Diggins, a California State Park that has been “cut” from the state budget. This is a wonderful area with lots of tiny houses.
It is so sad seeing so many of our parks being closed to the public. I hope these tiny houses are not vandalized because they are no longer protected. Thank you Linda for sharing these pictures with us.

My husband and I have been utilizing the services of Airbnb for several of this year’s trips (New Orleans and Chile) and we’ve been very pleased with the ease and rental opportunities offered by the company. Airbnb is an online booking service that allows property owners to rent out their home or a room to travelers and it allows travelers to stay in unique places around the world. I was curious about the most popular rental location on Airbnb and was surprised to see that it was a beautiful tiny house shaped like a mushroom.
The Mushroom Dome Cabin in Aptos, California is rated as the number one listing on airbnb.com and consists of a semi-rustic cabin under a geodesic dome surrounded by oak, redwood and madrone trees. The cabin has a double bed located in the loft, an LCD screen with DVD player, a small deck, a couch, a small hot plate, refrigerator, toaster oven, blender and other kitchen supplies. The cabin has a tiny bathroom and shower. The owners provide clean linens and soap. Depending on the time of year, length of stay and amount of people, prices for the Mushroom Dome are about $90 per night and about $600 per week. Continue Reading »
I’ve decided to take a little break today and just give you a photo to enjoy. This is Matthew Adams outside his 120-square-foot house by Modern Cabana on his 160 acres near Red Bluff, California. He wanted a well-designed dwelling that would have the least effect on his land. I used this photo as my banner in the early days of the Tiny House Blog.
