Tiny Homes - Another Adventure


Drawn to tiny homes by the creativity, logical placement of storage, and unique ways of creating a living space, I share with you my latest finds. They all have a small footprint and, of course, style. It seems my fascination with tiny homes knows no bounds.

Beauer Camper

From photos & floor-plans on the company’s website: the kitchen & toilet facilities are fixed in the center section. The bed and banquette+table built-ins unfold like Murphy beds when the bedroom and dining-room sections pull out from the central compartment.

 Shipping Container Tiny Home

This shipping container tiny house is designed and built by Munda Design and Construction.


When you walk inside you’ll notice an open one level floor plan with no lofts, ladders, or staircases.

Expedition Motorhome

This is the story of how two people, at the age of 45, quit their 9-5 jobs, sold just about everything, and built this awesome Mk2 expedition motorhome to travel and live in.

Pod Tents for Cooler Climates

The Brits are experts when it comes to tent camping in cool weather. Here is the latest import from the United Kingdom.


Planning on spending the holidays where the weather may be temperamental? If you have a large family and want to spend your time outdoors celebrating, imagine a tent city with connecting pods.


POD Tents are a whole new way to tent camp.


Designed to sleep 4 (POD Mini) or 8 (POD Maxi), each POD is made of ripstop polyester with taped seams and designed to assemble into its own tent very easily.

The revolutionary part of each of the units is that they can all be interconnected through a series of tunnels which gives infinite possibilities for expansion. Have one common room POD Maxi in the middle with individual POD Mini bedrooms off each of the sides to create your own collapsible estate.
