Tiny houses are taking over as the latest housing trend, known their innovation and affordability.
This is the coolest tiny house I’ve ever seen (and like you, I’ve seen a lot)!
Jim Wilkins of Tiny Green Cabins in the creator of Ravenlore, a 176 sq.ft. Victorian tiny home. While it is just 22 x 8 feet and weights in right around 13,500 lbs.
, this little house packs a punch with bright and whimsical details.Homeowner Nicki Joe Davis enjoys the ultimate freedom with Ravenlore. The tiny home was built over wheels, allowing her more interior space, but coupled with the challenges of a heavier load.
Nicki shouldn’t worry, though; she can handle it as she is a firefighter.

What Ravenlore lacks in square footage, is made up for in innovative creativity. For under $60,000, Nicki was able to simplify and downsize her life into the tiny house which was delivered to her in Savannah, Georgia. The tiny house has plenty of storage, hidden away underneath the floor. Bright, natural lighting floods the kitchen, opening up the space visually. The built-in solar power system cuts electricity costs and is a dream for the environmentally-conscious.
“When I saw the design with the gingerbread trim, I knew it had to be purple, pink, blue, and green,” Nicki says. “I love that it’s completely ridiculous. It makes me really happy.”
Nicki was forced to relocate from Thunderbolt, Georgia when she was served a “Tiny House Eviction” due to zoning issues, according to Tiny House Journey. She is now happily stationed at Green Bridge Farm, an eco-friendly organic farm just 30 minutes outside of Savannah.

Nicki Jo Davis achieved her dream of a simple life when she downsized to “Ravenlore,” her tiny Victorian home on wheels that is bursting with color and uniqueness.
Nicki spent her first year in the home, refurnishing the interior to match its bright, whimsical exterior.
As far as life in the tiny home, Nicki says, “I think it’s identical to living in any other house.”
“I do all the same things everyone else does when I’m home, but obviously it’s extra fantastic having almost nothing to clean or maintain,” she told Tiny House Giant Journey.

Nicki ended up trading the original incinerating toilet for a Nature’s Head composting toilet.
