7 Tiny Homes That Will Spark Your Sense of Wanderlust
Pack your bags now, because after seeing these tiny homes, you'll never want to go back.
After binge watching shows like Tiny House, Big Living, I’m a little envious of people who live in smaller structures. Not only do they manage to organize their lives into less than 300 square feet (a girl can dream), but they also have the freedom to explore some pretty unique parts of the country. With a house on wheels, who wouldn’t want to travel everywhere?
To kick off National Great Outdoors Month, here are 7 tiny homes that boast truly impressive views — and that will inspire the adventurer in you.
Tiny Cabin Is Nestled in the Wilderness
This small cabin is tucked into a hillside in Methow Valley, Wash. Rolling hills and endless pines surround the home, creating a true wilderness retreat.
Screened Cabin Porch Creates Indoor-Outdoor Feel
With a fully screened porch, this cabin allows homeowners the pleasantries of being indoors with the feel of being outdoors. Warm lighting illuminates the home at night.
When Wedgies Are Welcome
Wedge Salad for Two
Just because you go off the grid doesn’t mean you can’t update your Facebook page by the fire. Each Wedge comes wired for cable and Internet. Mini gas-burning or electric fireplaces and AC can also be added.
While the Nomad’s Nest model from Wind River Tiny Homes will go just about anywhere you like, it is designed to stay put, not be pulled like an RV. However, should you decide to pull up stakes, this home can be toted to a new location whenever you like.
Come on Get Happy
The one-of-a-kind Toybox Home is the result of two guys running into each other at a Chicago reclaimed materials store. Frank Henderson, a music student, met Paul Schultz, a designer, and the two decided to design and construct a tiny house where Henderson could live while in school.
Window on the World
Tiny Before Tiny Was Cool
Tumbleweed Houses laid down its roots in 1999 basing their business model on the concept that homes could roll and lay down roots just like its namesake. All models, like this Mica, can be customized in-house or they will help you out with a DIY kit.
Whistle Stop Tour
Tumbleweed Houses are designed to weather all seasons, climates and personalities. The Cypress makes use of the most interior space, by incorporating a recessed corner porch affording the interior living area more space.
