The top 10 tiny houses of 2015
We keep saying that when it comes to tiny houses, it takes a village. So imagine what it would be like if one built a tiny house community out of the ten most popular tiny houses of 2015.CC BY 2.0
I am thrilled that this one squeezed on to the top ten list, this stack-wall gem designed and built by Netonia Yalte on Haida Gwaii. I had the pleasure of spending a night in it:
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.

This is amazing but I also find it pretty funny. A tree hugger saying "All I need in life is a house in a tree and a skateboard pool and 170K to make it all work"More in TreeHugger
As we've seen with glamper microhomes and high-end, luxurious tiny homes (that come with their own high-end price tag), smaller spaces aren't always as affordable as one may think. However, using salvaged materials and gifted items will keep costs down, as Pacific Northwest resident Scott Brooks did with his tiny home, which he built for "well below" USD $500.More in TreeHuggerTiny House Talk This was a totally silly post about an imaginary tiny house designed to get around all the stupid rules that municipalities have to ban tiny houses.

One could spend a lifetime trying to figure out why certain posts get so popular. Take our Number One tiny house of the year; close to 300,000 people looked at this one, about half of whom complained about how much it cost.
