5 Tiny Houses We Loved This Week: From the Energy-Efficient to the Scandi-Inspired

All are available to purchase

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

Is the most beautiful, most organized tiny house we’ve ever seen? Maybe, maybe it is. Designed by a Seattle builder, the 300-square-foot abode is superbly livable with a large cedar bathroom, couch that can turn in to a Queen bed, bar seating, and loft storage. Since the builder is moving onto another tiny house, this gem is now for sale for $69,500. Details here.

And another tiny home gem from Seattle—only this is actually a 480-square-foot houseboat. Featuring ash wood floors, new counters, built-in bed with drawers, the recently remodeled place is asking $350,000—which presumably buys you the right to park dock somewhere permanently (really one of the most troubling parts of owning a tiny house.)

Hailing from Northwest Pennsylvania, this 150-square-foot tiny house ditches the traditional stick-build construction method for SIPs (structural insulated panels), a more durable, energy efficient alternative. The blue and orange abode features a simple pull-out Queen bed (sofa, if pulled halfway), and can go off-grid. Better yet, the sellers have just slashed the price from $42,000 to $39,000 and will entertain all offers.

A gorgeous tiny house inspired by Scandinavian design? What’s not to love.

This 280-square-foot "Indigo" tiny house from South Carolina builder Driftwood Homes recently took home the "Best in Show" award at the Charlotte Tiny House Expo. Key appeal? A separate bedroom towards the back of the home, Fisher & Paykel appliances, and shiplap on the interior walls.
