5 Tiny Houses We Loved This Week: From the Victorian-Inspired to the Family-Friendly

The smallest is just 100 square feet

Another week, another fresh crop of tiny house news. Here, we catch you up on the standout projects you should know.

Formerly a bathhouse set among a cluster of farm buildings, this 250-square-foot structure was recently renovated into a stunning tiny home for summer vacationers at the Point Reyes National Seashore park reserve.

Why we love it: It may be the most adorable 250 square feet ever. Plus, the floors are available for purchase.

This is a 196-square-foot tiny home built on a 24-foot-long flatbed trailer. Interior highlights include a kitchen with reclaimed wood countertops, radiant floor heating, loft bed, plus small bunk beds.

Why we love it: The well-appointed tiny home manages to meet all the needs of a family of four (yes, four!), including two children, not to mention a Great Dane. Get a closer look at the house over on Inhabitots.

Located in Washington state, this roughly 400-square-foot home was built by Tiny Portable Cedar Cabins.

Why we love it: At 400 square feet, it's a lot bigger than the typical tiny house, but it shows how the same tiny living ideas—loft bed, kitchen with open shelving, etc.—can be applied at a more generous scale. Tucking in a nursery and bathroom under the loft is especially neat.

Built by Tiny Green Cabins for a firefighter, this looker of a tiny house is kind of famous. It was featured on HGTV's Tiny House Hunters last year and a Youtube tour of the 240-square-foot abode has over two millions views.

Why we love it: Victorian. Purple. Tiny. House. Enough said. Also, this truly unique tiny house, currently parked in Savannah, GA, is now available to snag: $65,656 or best offer.

This is 100-square-foot tiny house with cedar siding, pine interior, stainless steel sink, undercounter fridge, and a daybed/sofa that converts into a full-size bed

Why we love it: The Minneapolis-based builder of this home currently has it listed on Craiglist for $15,000, but will be entertaining all offers in hopes of a quick sale—a good opportunity to get a (truly) tiny house, done up in style, for a relatively affordable price.
