I have not posted anything about tiny houses in a while, but make no mistake, I still love tiny house floor plans!

Here are just a few of what may be considered the top tiny houses of 2015.

1. Tiny home built from bottles, bones and beach debris

Sleeping in a space without electricity on a totally silent beach on a remote island behind thick walls, it was the quietest night I have ever spent. The light filtering through the bottles and windows this morning from the rising sun was a glorious sight. It was a truly memorable experience.

2. Self Made 500$ Tiny Home

Open Concept Modern Tiny House with Elevator Bed

Wow- This could be my favorite tiny house I’ve ever seen on YouTube. It is built by Ana White and her husband Jacob.

It really does have it all and it’s clever without being stupid. I am having a hard time finding any drawbacks to this tiny house. The fact that it’s the first tiny home I’ve seen with a female designer/carpenter can’t be coincidence either. Great problem solving in every aspect and I love that the plans are shared with the public.

See much more at Ana White

What do you think of this fantastic tiny house? Please share your thoughts in the comments and please share this post via social media. Thanks!

Made from a former bus, the Majestic Bus has been remodeled into a cute, little guest home in Hay-on-Wye, Wales.

The home was renovated with wood floors, a beautifully designed kitchen with cabinetry, a gas stove, and a fridge. There’s a double-sized bed in the home, in addition to an L-shaped sofa that can be converted into an extra bed. The home can comfortably fit up to four adults.

For energy, the Majestic Bus has solar panels on the roof to power the lights and electrical sockets. There’s no plumbing in the house, but there is a wooden bathhouse just a little ways away.

The bus is available for rent, for two people, from £90 – £145 per night(110USD-180USD), depending on the time of year. Extra people can be invited along for an additional fee. In addition to the four adults that…
