So… today’s website is a blog all about homes. But not ordinary homes…. homes strapped to trucks, homes made out of trash, and even homes made out of trees (not wood… TREES.) The blog is called:
This Tiny House, like I said, is a blog dedicated to the unique, eco-friendly, and tiny, houses. The author of the blog is a writer with a love for small spaces – About her:
My journey of tiny homes and small space living began 8 years ago in a converted old chicken coop on a hippie commune in Virginia, followed me to New York City in a 186-sq-ft apartment (a finalist in AT’s Smallest Coolest contest), meandered west across the United States with a brief experiment in car-living, and nested in a rooftop studio with my sweetiepie.
My desire to own my own tiny home (and not go into debt) led me to buy a used lightweight fiberglass travel trailer in January of 2008. (I can tow it with my fuel efficient car!) The intent of fixing up the 50-square-foot space was preparing for full-time travel.
We have since been adopted into what is being called the Small House Movement, which includes Tumbleweed-style tiny homes.
Personally, I think that her lifestyle sounds pretty much awesome and totally unique. One day, I would LOVE to buy myself (and bf) a fiberglass travel trailer and just… go! But… temporarily. I do see the charm in small houses… but I don’t know about TINY.
Some of my favorite houses include:
(^reminds me of Swiss Family Robinson)
(^Instant Housing for Urban Nomads – Click here for details on how this works -its AWESOME)
(^this is actually a HOTEL! click here to view the hotel homepage)
Aren’t these cool!? I could look through this blog all day… imagining myself living in these tiny houses… some of them I’m pretty sure I would be absolutely miserable in and others – they’re fit for a queen.
What do you think? Could you live in some of the featured tiny houses? It would definitely require an adjustment in one’s lifestyle!
