Smaller homes run a whole gamut of creativity: from hand-built earthen geodesic domes to the current plethora of interesting tiny homes that are emerging beyond the early Tumbleweed days. Nelson Tiny Houses, a builder based in British Columbia, created this impressive 380-square-foot dwelling using a fifth-wheel utility trailer as a base. The resulting design boasts a great layout: a comfortable sitting area, guest loft and a loft-less bedroom that feels like a room in its own right. Seth Reidy of Nelson Tiny Houses gives a tour of this home, now nestled in the mountains somewhere.

Dubbed the V House, the approximately 38′ by 9′ solar-powered home features an extra-wide deck and front door that opens into the sitting area. Thanks to a neat, transforming design involving mobile seating units and a folding bamboo table that can expand and become suspended from the ceiling with a cable, this area is made into a multipurpose space (dining, workspace and even guest bed). Above the sitting area is the spare bedroom loft.

The home is heated with Hobbit wood stove with a fresh air intake, and also has a heat pump installed in the kitchen. The kitchen is large, with lots of counter space, a full-sized sink, oven, refrigerator, and pantry. Sliding doors on both ends of the adjoining bathroom save space.

  1. Of course. There is no need for these massive over priced houses that you barely live in because most of the time your working to pay off the house. Small houses are good. And possibly more energy friendly.
