We lived for several years in a solar powered house in Northern New Mexico and had a wood fireplace that helped us getting through those cold winter months at that high altitude.
A wood pellet fireplace that’s small sized but still powerful enough to heat a tiny house, RV or houseboat is just perfect for every tiny living.
And let me tell you by our own experience, having a wood pellet stove or wood pellet fireplace is so cozy you don’t want to miss that comfortable feeling besides the warmth it’s emanating.
Living in a tiny home you don’t want to have a water heater with tank for purely space related reasons first of all, but then you might be interested in all the other advantages a tankless water heater has – even more so when it works with natural gas instead of electricity.
Very often you need to have an indoor water heater just because of your outdoor situation or space. In this case the water heater shouldn’t be too noisy but still powerful enough to provide you and your family with enough warm water.

Who doesn’t enjoy taking a shower with having instantly hot water! Instead of letting the water run and waiting for it to get at least warm, you can get into the shower immediately. Thanks to a tankless water heater.
After my post about electric tankless water heaters today I look into the water heater category that works also tankless but operates with propane gas.
The advantages of a gas water heater are numerous. Let’s take a look at them.
Well, let‘s make one big step ahead in the area of washing machines for tiny homes. It may sound futuristic and even weird, but the world‘s first and only wall mounted mini washing machine is out there and waiting to be installed in tiny homes, such as a tiny house, an RV, camper and houseboat.
The advantages are obvious. This washing machine doesn’t have any footprint at all. Being wall mounted is sort of its legitimation for being installed in tiny homes.
Here are some details about this innovative new washing machine that might interest you.
Yes, I know, it sounds weird and contradictory: living in a tiny home and adding Victorian style to its decor. Probably most of you spontaneously connect Victorian style with big houses, mansions or castles. I did so too. At first glance you‘d think of the Victorian interior style as the opposite of the contemporary Zen-like style that so many people living in tiny homes love.
There are though some fascinating aspects around the Victorian style that makes it interesting for implementing it into tiny homes such as small apartments, tiny houses, RVs and houseboats. Here are some thoughts for you.

In hot climates or everywhere in summer for that matter people use fans to move air around and keep themselves cool. A fan is not generating cool air but it makes us feel cooler. I will get to this point later in more detail.
A portable fan could be too bulky for your tiny home, surely for a tiny house, a small apartment, RV or houseboat. In this case you might be interested in a compact window fan – those models that are thin and therefore unobtrusive for a small room, but still powerful enough to move air around.
