    This book is essentially two sections. The first one talks about what tiny homes are and then talks about the ins and outs of trying to match up your house plans to recycled materials. Whatever you are able to find that is. It includes tips and advice about finding the right kind of materials you need. The second part is many examples of tiny homes built at least in part from recycled materials. A handful of pictures and several pages about the making of.

The first one talks about what tiny homes are and then talks about the ins and outs of trying to match up your house plans to recycled materials. Whatever you are able to find that is. It includes tips and advice about finding the right kind of materials you need. The second part is many examples of tiny homes built at least in part from recycled materials. A handful of pictures and several pages about the making of. Examples are easy to find online with the same amount of photos and brief stories to go with them. What makes this book stand out is that a comprehensive utilities checklist accompanies each example. That's always a question I have when I look online. What all was done for the utitilies?? Rarely is there any complete outline of that. This isn't a comprehensive cookbook of how to design or build a tiny home. It is a useful read though because of the discussion on recycled materials and how to find and then work into your house design. The example houses are good for getting ideas from. Easy recommend as supplementary reading for tiny house enthusiasts who are interested in trying to incorporate some green into their build. Thank you to the publisher for the free copy of this book in exchange for this honest review.

    Some more inspirational little houses, built from recycled material, some on foundations like the 70 square foot cob house (tiny!). There's an example of a family of 4 living in a 200 square foot home, whoa. I've used recycled wood for smaller projects, if you need utilitarian or funky, it's a cheap or free resource.

    Wonderful! Plenty of creative inspiration here. Fits in exactly with a couple of backyard projects I have, though I’m sure the realisation will take a while... Good, practical design tips and advice and great photos.

    a goodreads giveaway book won. another non-fiction with five stars. very insightful book on getting and finding recycled material plus homes that already been erected and their stories and the people that built them. I have always liking something smaller, yet I am looking to make it as a tree house.

    Some people may like it, but it would be kind of tiny for me to live comfortably in it..

    I'm really not sure what to think of this book. I checked about about 20 tiny house books from the library trying to get some inspiration for the tiny house I'm getting ready to build. This one seemed like it would better align with my ideas for building a tiny house, but I'm not sure that it did. I found it rather discouraging in fact. There were a number of short pieces about different tiny houses that people had built with recycled materials, but these people had spent 3 years and $20,000 bui I'm really not sure what to think of this book.

There were a number of short pieces about different tiny houses that people had built with recycled materials, but these people had spent 3 years and $20,000 building their tiny house! With recycled materials! (I had to return the book to the library, so this isn't necessarily accurate, but more the impression I got about most of the houses in this book.) I got some ideas from this book, but nothing that really jumped out and grabbed me. Perhaps part of where it fell short for me is that I've been building with recycled materials since I was a kid, and very little of this was new to me. I did like the idea of having a tool kit always in the truck for those times you find things on the side of the road, but maybe just want hardware or certain pieces. That just means that I'll have to start locking my truck, because it gets rifled through pretty regularly. He showcases a lot of his own builds in this book, and I understand wanting to show off unique builds that you've done, but it wasn't really what I was looking for. I guess I was hoping to see more of the basics of tiny house building than stories about a plexiglass house on stilts or whatever.

    This book has me so excited to build my tiny house. I’ve been obsessed with tiny houses for a few years now, and now that I’m in the transition stage of becoming an adult its been having me thinking about it more and more. Tiny houses are so smart. They’re sustainable and eco-friendly. They’re cheap so I wouldn’t have to have a 30 year mortgage. They’re easily moveable (if you have it on wheels). It just seems like the PERFECT option for me for a first home. So, I’ve been reading up on them more This book has me so excited to build my tiny house.

I love the idea of using reclaimed materials to source a majority of the things I would need to build a tiny house, and this book had some amazing tips when it came to finding and using reclaimed materials. This not only makes the build MUCH cheaper, it’s also so much more eco-friendly and sustainable because you typically are keeping a lot out of landfills. There was one home in this book that really inspired me with the decor and layout. I want reclaimed wood flooring, a loft for the bedroom, and pretty much white everything. I love how light and bright the space looked! They’re literally just the cutest things ever and I want to create one :) https://pointextaken.com/2019/03/02/r... Aubrey Joy

    So...this book is basically 34 pages long, because I didn't really need to "talk to tiny house homeowners". Not to mention that a majority of those owners have on-wheel houses, which I am not interested in. It did however feature a house from Wisconsin (where I live), so that was kind of cool. But that's where my interest ended. Many of those homeowners had connections to various left-over job site materials, which I do not. So yeah, the first 34 pages were really the most useful and most likely So...this book is basically 34 pages long, because I didn't really need to "talk to tiny house homeowners".

And I suppose if you're looking for design/decor ideas, it might be helpful. But over all, wasn't really what I wanted in the book.

    Best of both worlds. This book opens with some of the benefits of working with recycled and salvaged materials and provides the positives and challenges of living in a tiny house. The last section of the book digs in to some of the variations on the theme and allows you to get a feel for all of the work and love that goes into the planning and construction phase.

    Honestly, this book was more of a coffee table book than something actually helpful. I found several other books in this series much more practically useful. I did see a few ideas that I hadn't seen before, so that was good. Honestly, this book was more of a coffee table book than something actually helpful.

    Part II of Tiny Houses Built with Recycle Materials is a must-read for any tiny house dreamer! There you'll find the stories of 20 tiny house owner-builders who used a large percentage of recycled materials in their houses. Each story begins with an exterior photo, a floor plan of the house, and a breakdown of its utilities. There's also a few additional photos worked in throughout the story. (I won't deny being a little disappointed that not everyone included interior photos.) While Part II is Part II of Tiny Houses Built with Recycle Materials is a must-read for any tiny house dreamer!

While Part II is the star, don't overlook the wealth of information packed into Part 1, which gave me a solid introduction to the why of using reclaimed materials as well as the pros and cons of doing so. Lastly, don't miss the list of resources at the end of the book: Interviewee Websites, General Tiny House Websites, and Tiny House Books (although 4 of the 9 listed were also by Ryan Mitchell). 4 stars

    This book is beautifully put together. Many people who are looking at tiny houses are not only hoping to find a lower cost of living there, but also to make a smaller environmental footprint. Mitchell and those who share their homes in this book share what they did as well as the pros and cons of both the process and tiny home living. Well done! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Tiny homes are a growing trend, and this book shows you that it is possible to create a home using recycled materials. It touches on everything that would provide for you needs and comfort in a tiny house.

    The tiny house movement fascinates me because of its efficient use of space and recycled materials. It is a microcosm that provides inspiration to maximize bigger spaces. This book has great photographs in conjunction with 20 tiny house case studies that provide food for thought.
