Bryce Langston of Living Big in a Tiny House knows a lot about tiny houses. He’s been interviewing tiny home owners from all walks of live for a few years now and he walks his talk too. He spent a big chunk of time over the last year living in a Lotus Belle Tent deep in a New Zealand forest just to see if tent living was sustainable.

He pretty much decided it wasn’t, unless of course you can find a great solution for the tent’s lack of insulation, and you can create a good toilet situation that isn’t too far from your tent.


The point is this, Bryce loves tiny homes and the adventure they offer. So I think he is just the guy to turn to find out which tiny houses were the best of the year. The only downside to the list is that it is limited to the homes he visited and the owners he interviewed.

Still, they are lovely and you can learn more about each one by visiting Bryce’s youtube channel:

Bryce Langston’s Top 5 Tiny Homes of 2016 in Countdown Order:

#5 – Oli and Holly’s Incredibly Spacious House on Wheel

Oli and Holly decided they didn’t need to move much so they opted for a wide, high tiny home that even includes it’s own climbing rock wall – that takes you up to there comfortable loft. There kitchen includes the luxury of a regular size table and enough room for both of them to cook. And several large windows let in lots of natural light.

#4 – Frenchy’s Magical Gypsy Vardo Style Caravan

This ultra-portable, super tiny home oozes creativity. With oodles of character and lots of finishing touches added by Frenchy and her artist friends, this place is a super cozy home. It also has a rounded roof and circular window for a feminine touch.

#3 – The Skysphere

If you’re looking for a futuristic retreat, this space age “man cave” is perfect. Owner/Creator, John Williams actually took a night classes in welding to be able to put this home together. It’s almost completely controlled by a smartphone app – with a safety “zombie mode” – just in case you should have unwanted intruders.

#2 – Evan’s Container Home

It’s quite a challenge to turn the very limited space of a single shipping container into a sustainable, living space, so that’s why this tiny home comes in at #2. Evan, a retired boat builder used all his knowledge of working with boats to turn a single container into a sweet little tiny home. One of it’s coolest benefits? Evan kept the shipping container 100% in tack, so his home can be shipped anywhere in the world.

#1 – Jeff Hobb’s High Spec Tiny Home

Regular houses can add grandeur by adding space, but tiny homes go the other way. The more exceptionally they utilize space, and the more creatively and luxuriously they design the limited space so that it feels bigger and serves all the needed functions, the better. And if you can make them off-grid, and self-sustaining, even better yet! This professionally designed house may be more than most newbies can take on, but it’s Bryce’s #1 because it is so livable, off-grid, and beautifully crafted. He calls it a “benchmark” for all other tiny homes in 2016.
