It all began when we were invited to see our friends cabin in Topanga Canyon. We instantly fell in love with the place. There were a few cabins on the property but none of them were available to rent. We started a dialogue with the owner and he encouraged us to build our own space with his materials.” – Mason St. Peter

I stumbled upon this very cool vardo at Point Reyes Schoolhouse Compound at the head of Tomales Bay. I thought my photo was pretty good, but I just found a better one of the same subject on their site along with a bunch of other great photos of the area. Apparently, you can rent it nightly.” – Jay Shafer at Four Lights Tiny Houses

An existing 250 sq.ft. storage shed was transformed into a small guest house. A large tilted redwood clad wall, made from recycled cuts, slices through the house dividing it into work and live spaces. The walls ‘folds’ and becomes the deck, which sweeps out into the adjacent garden to connect the house to the landscape.” - Jeremy Levine

Hannah grew up in a home her parents built (her father is a boat builder), so it was only natural for her to follow in their footsteps. Tim, on the other hand, has never built anything but fires. With that in mind, Tim and Hannah started out with 20 acres of land and no blueprints, and built one of the most impressive houses I’ve ever seen in my life — not to mention it’s fully off-the-grid.” - Apartment Therapy

Beth’s small cottage is surrounded by lush gardens in the hills of Sausalito, California. Built sometime in the 1930′s, the tiny cottage has just 365 ft2 (33.9 m2), smaller than most two-car garages. Yet, it doesn’t seem that small. While the kitchen is indeed cramped, the rest of the house appears quite comfortable.” – Small House Bliss
