Tiny House in a Landscape

Pennypincher’s Baby Bear Cabin

I’ve posted before about the Pennypincher Barn Company and recently Anne sent me an update on one of there most popular models and I thought you would enjoy it too.

Though not tiny, it fits into the small range. Pennypincher Barns describe their cabin as “A Fairy Tale Dream Come True.”

Once Upon a Time there was a cabin in the woods. While this cabin had all the practical elements of an ordinary cabin it was by no means ordinary. This cabin was not too large. This cabin was not too small. This cabin was just right!

Unique Houseboat on Ebay

Jared alerted me to this unique find on Ebay at 5:00 A.M. this morning. Tiny houses and floating homes are a passion of mine and this one a real find.

If you are in the Portland, Oregon area I would run down and check this out right away as I am sure it will go fast. I am in the process of duplicating the Ebay ad as I know it will go away in a few days and I want this available for all to see for a long time. At a Buy Now price of $28,900 it can be yours today.



I am also trying to get in touch with the owner to see if plans are available for those who might want to build one themselves. This is a long post so hit the more link below. Here are the details:

You are bidding on a 28-foot long, steel-hulled, river barge boat. If you are considering a small houseboat or floating home for a retreat on the water, this might be a perfect alternative. It could be the perfect bachelor’s pad, artist’s or writer’s studio, weekend or vacation spot, or whatever you would like it to be! It could be a great liveaboard situation for a single person, who is also handy in finishing up some undone work.

This is NOT a fixer. Just not quite finished yet. Pride of ownership shows!

Unofficially named the “Gypsy Ark”, but the name is nowhere printed on the hull or siding, so you could rename it easily. (It is only painted on one horseshoe lifering)
