Think your dream home can be squeezed into 300 square feet? For thousands of homeowners, it can. Tiny Homes are now an extremely popular and affordable option for first time buyers, retirees, avid travelers, sportsmen, communities looking to help with the housing crisis, and people who just like to keep things simple.
While they may be small, the ideas behind tiny houses are HUGE. Here are some popular, believe-it-or-not designs that you’ve got to check out if you’re considering a small home of your own.
A Roof Top Patio
Some tiny homes have pop out patios or awnings, while others maximize the ceiling space! This tiny home has a wraparound stairway that leads “upstairs” to the roof of the house, for your own private, elevated patio.
A Boathouse ON the Dock
No more room to build on the shoreline? If you own your own boat dock, don’t forget about the extra building space. This Nantucket Boathouse is located at the end of a private dock where you might otherwise find a family out fishing or enjoying the salty breeze. Now you can do both, straight out of your “bedroom” window.
Private Home, Hot Tub, and Privacy Fence
Think a hot tub with a built-in privacy fence can’t be a part of your tiny home dream? Think again! This one English company rolls all of these perks into one, so you can still enjoy a few drinks out at night with your favorite pal or two, without always going to their house.
Equip Your Tiny Home with Solar Power
Solar energy is great for the environment, but with the panels on your already energy-efficient tiny home, it means there’s next to no electric bill at all. Better yet, you can go completely off the grid. All you need is enough surface area on the roof to mount your panels in a way that they’re exposed to direct sunlight.
Livin’ on a Bus
If you have access to an old school bus, charter bus, or even a horse trailer, you already have a great shell for finishing out your new tiny home. This old green bus is flanked with cedar planks and antique windows for an eclectic flair that you’ll likely never see going down the highway.
Small Homes with Wheelchair Access
Now its easy for people to have a home that’s convenient and accommodating to individuals that are wheelchair-bound. Not only does this accessible tiny house come equipped with a wheelchair ramp, but the floorplan is open with a roll-under desk and open-area bathroom (with shower!) that you or your loved one can easily use.
A Tiny Tree Home in the Sky
Who says that your tiny house needs to be on the ground or in the back of a trailer? Bring your childhood fantasies to reality by building your home in the top of a tree! With a wraparound staircase, you’ll feel just like part of the Swiss Family Robinson. Rope swing is optional.
Think outside of the box. Consider having your tiny home built right into an old farm silo that’s equipped with all of the modern conveniences that you need. Why not be a circle out of a field full of squares?
Get Your Lot Ready with a Tiny Tractor of Your Own!
Once you’ve bought the lot of land that your tiny home is going on, you’ll need a flat plot and the horsepower to move building materials for your not-too-big DIY project. The MAGNATRAC RS1000 or MAGNATRAC MH8000 is perfect for personal, homestead, and light commercial use. Save thousands of dollars by building yourself with your own equipment!
