When we heard that our Nugget Micro Tiny House on Wheels had been featured on The Today Show, we couldn't believe it! Apparently Modern Tiny Living's "Nugget" has been making the rounds around the tiny house web circuit and found it's way to the right people at NBC! We are thrilled to have been featured, and so glad the founder of Try It Tiny, Maggie Daniels, trusted us with the build of her beautiful off-grid tiny house on wheels.

We really can't believe the amount of attention the "Nugget" has gotten in the media. When we built this micro home for our wonderful customer Maggie, we didn't realize we were starting a firestorm!
The Nugget is a 12' micro home on wheels, but with it's full bathroom, bed, and kitchen, you certainly wouldn't know it was less than 100 square feet! We love this tiny house, and will happily build you one starting at $29,000!

Just wrapped up this perfect shell for our customer Alexa! We love the DIY movement over here at MTL, and applaud any qualified individual looking to tackle their own tiny house build, but it definitely makes sense for a lot of DIY'ers to have a builder do their shell.
We've met a lot of ambitious individuals who really underestimate the heavy machinery and tools needed to build a shell - not to mention a location to do it! Many people will spend thousands of dollars in tools alone to complete the job.
We can build the perfect shell for your DIY tiny home project for a fraction of the cost of a complete home, and you'll have a nice, dry shell to finish the interior on your own time!

Wow! Our newest model, The Nugget, was featured on Curbed - we are so hyped!
A few thoughts on the Nugget -
We've found The Nugget is a truly polarizing build. While some people adore it and see the value, others balk at the price-tag. The Nugget starts around $29,000, but the model as-shown is around $36,000. Why? It's fully solar, and fully off-grid, and is built to last 70 years with premium materials and craftwork.
We noticed one of the commenters on the article said, and we quote, "You can buy a good used travel trailer for for about 1/10 that price."
Well, we aren't arguing with that. You can definitely buy an old, non-insulated, non-off-the-grid, non-attractive, debilitated camper for a few thousand dollars. But that's not what we are selling, and that's not what we want to build. We don't have a passion for selling old campers.
We want to build, and have a passion for BEAUTIFUL homes. Functional, high-end, and built to LAST. No, they aren't cheap. But we don't want it cheap. It's meant to survive in the wilderness for decades. It's insulated like a custom home, and built to last with 40 and 50 year warranties on the siding and roof.
For the same price as a minivan, someone can have a totally off-the-grid, architect designed, and built to stand the test of time Nugget! It may not be for everyone, but we think it's awesome, and we're proud of it!

Just wanted to share a quick progress picture of this 22 ft. tiny house shell on wheels we are building for Alexa!
Alexa has a very strong DIY love, so she plans to finish out the interior of her tiny house herself. We love it! Having a builder do the tiny house shell is a very smart way to start your tiny house project - let us do the heavy lifting, and then finish the rest on your own time (and with a roof over your head).
At MTL, we are here to support the DIY tiny house movement just as much as we are to design and fully build tiny homes for our customers. Whether you're looking for the perfect Trailer Made Custom Tiny House Trailer, the perfect tiny house shell, or a fully designed and built custom tiny house on wheels, we are here to help you any way we can!
We can't wait to show you Alexa's finished tiny home when she puts her finishing touches on it!
We are excited to share that Modern Tiny Living's newest tiny house on wheels model, The Nugget, was featured on the world's #1 tiny house blog, Tiny House Talk.

Modern Tiny Living is proud to debut its very first Micro Home - a 12 ft. x 8.5 ft (102 sq. ft.) fully off-grid solar model named The Nugget!
You may not be able to tell from the outside, but this little guy houses a full bathroom, kitchen with sink and mini-fridge, and a gorgeous bed/living area. It's amazing what can be squeezed into 100 square feet with conscious design! While this home may not be someone's full time residence, it makes the perfect travel home or weekend getaway. With full solar, off-grid water storage, and propane heating and water heating, it is ready to go wherever your heart desires.
What do you think? Could you live in this for a week or two?

One of the things that separates Modern Tiny Living from other builders is the partnership of a certified architect. In our case, that's Bruce Faris - the man, the myth, the legend.
Having a certified architect around is crucial for a variety of reasons. One, he is able to design your dream home from the ground up - and is qualified to do so. He can take designs, photos and priorities and create something custom tailored to your needs.
Now, building a "pretty" home is standard in our industry, but building a pretty home that is structurally sound and roadworthy is totally different. Bruce takes things into consideration like snow load, your travel load, torque, weight distribution, and much more. Most companies just don't go into that level of detail and safety. Just because someone is a skilled carpenter or craftsman does not mean they know how to build a roadworthy tiny house on wheels that is going to stand the test of time.
Bruce, of course, isn't just a certified architect, but a tiny home dweller himself. He knows first hand what it's like to live tiny, and by pairing his first-hand experience as a tiny house-liver with his technical experience - and combined with our design crew in Rachel Pitman and Cindy Hamilton - it enables our team to build designs at MTL that are the most beautiful, structurally sound, and safe tiny homes on the market.
Round of applause for Bruce!
