Extra Small Tiny House Built for a Traveling Minimalist – Full Tour

Tour this extra small tiny house! It was built by Seth Reidy from Nelson Tiny Houses in BC, Canada for a travelling, bird-watching minimalist friend who wanted a simple home on wheels. This tiny home is just -feet long, including the 2-foot bump out for the kitchen counter. It has concept shelving, a small workspace with storage below, a ladder to the sleeping loft, and a spacious with a wide bench for sitting, napping, and hanging out, that also has loads of storage space beneath it. As an extra space to sit, there are hooks for a that can be hung across the living room. The bathroom will have a shower and toilet but hadn’t been completed at the time of our visit.

For Seth, it was fun to build such a because it’s reminiscent of the size of tiny we used to see at the beginning of the tiny house movement. He has built many beautiful tiny houses of all different sizes and you can check them out on his website, Instagram and YouTube, linked below.

  1. Curious as to what it cost to build. And who watches his tiny home while he’s on those expeditions? Like, ideally, its in an intentional community. I like some areas of this little house, but in general, and despite being kinda bare bones, it’s just too “busy,” and yet also too sparse, and not particularly aesthetically pleasing. That’s one problem with being too small, everything is all glopped together. The best part would be the views, those rare birds, big windows bringing in nature.

  2. How refreshing to get back to real tiny houses once again. Beautifully and simply done. Tks to all for sharing this inspired solution.

  3. Thank you. I like the amount of the space around the bathroom. I still have a few books. Its nice to see a tiny house design with bookshelves. Really nice tiny design. How does he get electricity i did not see any solar panels.
    I am a fan of Nelson. Again these tiny houses are great it all boils down to land. Finding, buying or renting land.

  4. This is probably one of my favorite tiny house builds in a long time. I watch lots of van builds, so this has the same cozy feel. 🤓 Karen
