French Tiny House Site

French Tiny House Blog

Bénédicte Perdereau contacted me a while back and told me how the tiny house movement is starting to grow in France and that she wanted to start a blog similar to the Tiny House Blog but in French. He wanted to contact some of the people I have covered over the years on the Tiny House Blog. I gave him the okay and am excited to announce his new website. Though I don’t read French I’m sure you can use Google translate to read his site.

Let’s welcome them to the Tiny House fold by giving him some good traffic. Be sure and share with any of your French speaking friends.

Here is the web address:

Happy New Year 2014

Wow, where did this last year go? So much has happened in the last year in the tiny house world that I feel like I still am trying to catch up on it all. So many people building tiny houses, it is thrilling to see. I enjoy all the new blogs and websites of people sharing there stories and appreciate so many of you letting me pass them on via the Tiny House Blog.

The growth continues to amaze me as I come into the seventh year of publishing this blog. It has been fun to see the Tiny House Magazine publish issue number 12. A full year of an experiment that I believe has officially become a real product. Thank you to those faithful writers who make it happen.

I’m looking forward to seeing what 2014 brings to the tiny house movement. I think we are just getting ready to really take off as interest continues to grow. Happy New Year to you all!

  • Ideas for living comfortably in a smaller, space-efficient home.
  • Where the “tiny house” movement began and some of the benefits of living a pared down lifestyle.
  • How local building code restrictions may affect your choice to build a small house.
  • Where to find inspirational stories of other people who have actually built these type homes and why they did it.
  • Where to find a reputable small house builder in your local area.
  • Where to get ideas for your small house.

Plus a whole lot more!

Tiny House in a Landscape

This weeks Tiny House in a Landscape was discovered on Pinterest. It was simply entitled “Cozy” and did not have a link to where it was discovered.

The colors reminded me of fall and this time of thanksgiving. The scenery is perfect for this little house. Pinterest is a great place to follow tiny houses and you can follow the Tiny House Blog Pinterest page here. Have a wonderful weekend!


Tiny House Blog Settling In

I’m happy to say that the Tiny House Blog transition to the new host has gone fairly smoothly. There are a few posts that I am still trying to get the comments over from the old system and hopefully I will succeed with that today. I’ve also discovered a few missing photos so hope to get that all cleaned up to. If you see anything amiss please contact me and let me know. Thanks for your patience and I hope to get back up with regular posts starting this weekend.

Thank you Montana Mobile Cabins for your photography that to me just seemed to fit the occasion. Please check out their website here.
