Creative Couple's Stunning Tiny House Cost Only $17k!

Built for only US$17,000 this young couple's incredible tiny house is packed with unique and interesting design elements. The entire build was carried out as a DIY project using mainly reclaimed materials, as the couple saved up for each new phase of the construction. The couple decided to build a tiny house on wheels to give them freedom and more options for their future. Not knowing what city they were going to live in, or where they would need to travel for work once graduating, a house on wheels gave them the ability to simply hitch up their home and follow whatever opportunities presented themselves.

Woman Living in a Tiny House Loves the Small Space & Financial Freedom

Christine is a dental assistant who decided that she wanted to live in a tiny house for three reasons: because she likes small, cozy spaces, because she wanted to be comfortable financially, and because she wanted to have a smaller environmental footprint. Her ex-husband George built her tiny house after she committed to the project by buying a $6000 CAD trailer. The tiny house is built with extended roof trusses which double as the home's framing. The insulation is a combination of rigid foam insulation and spray foam insulation. She has a Nature's Head composting toilet but if she could do it again she'd set up a dry toilet to make cleaning it out easier (the Nature's Head is bulky and awkward to carry outside for emptying compared to a 5-gallon bucket). For heat over the winter, hot water, and cooking she uses propane, and she hopes to have solar panels installed at her next location for electricity so she'll be fully off the grid. For now Christine has parked her tiny house in the backyard of a friend for the first year, and after that she's looking to find a tiny house community of like minded people. While the idea of living in a house that is technically illegal (where it's currently parked), Christine is still very happy with her investment, with her home, and with her lifestyle. Living tiny has allowed her to live a simple life with fewer expenses; and that makes her happy. Thanks for watching!

Scientists Discovered A Skin-Crawling Secret That This Strange Island Had Concealed For 80 Years

Source: To the unassuming traveler, the Lord Howe Island Group probably looks like a tropical paradise. And while it’s true that the lush forests, beaches and coral reef are something of a haven, there’s more to these Australian islands than first meets the eye. Indeed, one particular isle has been harboring a decades-old, skin-crawling secret that was left undiscovered for over 80 years.

Beautiful Converted Stone Barn In Ireland, Crows’ Hermitage By Small House Bliss

A compact stone barn in the Irish countryside is now a sumptuous holiday cottage perfect for romantic escapes. The current owner converted the barn, now named Crows’ Hermitage, and has been using it as a vacation rental. It is located behind his house in the hamlet of Ardcath, less than an hour’s drive north of Dublin.

The original barn was a two-storey structure, but with low ceilings on both levels. The limited interior height was further reduced by the need to build a new insulated floor over the existing floor, which would have been either stone or just compacted dirt.

To get adequate headroom downstairs, a new bedroom loft was built a foot or two higher than the original upper floor, judging by the exterior stairs and doors at the back of the barn. That still left the small kitchen area below with a relatively low ceiling, but it benefits from being open to the double-height living room.

In the photo below, notice how the side windows sit very low in the walls. Those windows were placed within the original door openings.

The bathroom, tucked away at the back behind the kitchen, is split into two compartments. The bathroom door opens into a small space with just a shower stall. From there, another door leads to a second small room with the vanity and toilet.

Although the floor and roof are now insulated, keeping the original character meant that the stone walls were left uncovered. That will lead to pretty chilly mornings in winter, the kind of chill where you can see your breath. There is a small woodstove that reportedly will warm the space up fairly quickly, but it is hard to keep a fire going overnight in a small stove. Luckily there is also a backup electric heater.

Crows’ Hermitage would be an ideal base from which to explore Ireland’s east coast, including Dublin. It can be rented through Airbnb. Enjoy the photos!
