Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape features a Airstream trailer with the mountains in the background. I have been a big fan of Airstreams for many years and I lived in one for a year while in college. I think tiny house designers can take lessons from RV designs and apply them to their own.

I was recently on a tiny house panel at Sunset Magazine with Ella, Vina, and Catherine. While there I toured two tiny houses brought to the show by Tumbleweed and I also toured a 28 foot Airstream International Signature RV.

To be honest with you I felt most at home in the Airstream. It was very modern and luxurious but the thing that stood out for me the most was the use of the living space. I have shown you the floor plan below. My wife and I both liked the fact that we could walk around the bed. There was lots of storage and the rest of the “house” just flowed and seemed wide open. I would really enjoy seeing this type of design in a tiny house.

Tiny House in a Landscape

This week I thought I would share a tiny house in a landscape that I was lucky to visit last weekend at a workshop in Tennessee. I attended one of Deek’s workshops held at Tiny Happy Homes sometimes know as Tennessee Tiny Homes and owned by Joe Everson.

This little home is approximately 12 x 18 and built on a foundation. Joe’s sister and daughter live in it. It is one of several tiny/small homes located on the property where Joe builds and sells tiny houses.

Many of you want interior photos of the Tiny House in a Landscape photos and this time since I was there I was able to get a few and I have included them. You can see more of Joe’s work if you are on Facebook by clicking this link.

Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape is a blast from the past. Called the “Weekender,” this cute little house was found on one of the few tiny house websites I could find back in 2007. Unfortunately, the website is no longer up and I don’t have interior photos.

You can view a floor plan here.

It is amazing how times have changed in those seven years. Back in 2007 it was almost impossible to find tiny houses and now they are all over the country. Enjoy!
