About our "Teeny Tiny" house!

This unique (teeny!) tiny cabin was custom designed for extreme minimalist living! The atmosphere gives a cozy, woodland, and mystical feel; a large outdoor living space makes this a unique combination of outdoor/indoor living. Come to reflect, relax, enjoy the views and sounds of nature, and discover the unmatched delight of cozying up in a teeny tiny house in a vast outdoor space!

**Please be aware that like most tiny housers, I have a composting toilet—it’s environmentally friendly, saves a ton of water, and I love it! (I also built it!). But please be conscious of this fact before you book, and know to expect it. I know this type of thing isn’t for everyone, though most people seem to adapt just fine. If you are unsure about it, just ask. :)

Please ask about an early check-in! It's very likely we will be able to accommodate you, especially during the summer months.

The footprint is only 8x12, and the porch is collectively 288 sq. ft. This house, despite its small size, has everything you need to live; I lived in it for over a year, and had everything I needed. It has a 31”x 36”shower, composting toilet, a lofted "RV Short Full" bed (48” wide, 75" long - Bed #1), a futon/couch (sides fold down into a twin bed - Bed #2). The kitchen includes: a 19”-diameter galvanized steel sink (originally a flower pot) , 2 portable induction cook-top burners, pull-out drawers for storage, storage shelves for cans, spices storage on the ceiling, mini fridge (4.5 cu ft), combination microwave/convection oven, one 2 qt. saucepan, 2 frying pans (1 large, 1 medium), and collapsible food containers. It also has a foldable and stow-away custom-made counter-top that folds out to create a total of 8 feet of counter space (also can be used as a bar to eat at). This house has a ladder (with wide steps) that folds up to the wall when you want more room downstairs. Heated floors on the bottom floor are a luxurious addition. This house has a mini-split AC/heat unit, to as well as a propane fireplace for ambiance and supplemental heat. A hammock chair is stored on the wall and can be pulled down in seconds to provide alternative seating/views out the window (you can also sleep in it!). A huge deck (3x the footprint of the house!) is the cherry on top, that adds lots of outdoor living to the space. And in the summer time, cooking exclusively in the outdoor kitchen is a must! Come experience this minimalist paradise with amazing views.

Projector/TV: For those rainy days when you may not be able to access the outdoor amenities, this teeny tiny house has a Smart Projector (instead of a standard Smart TV) with a 65" wide pull-down projector screen. This Smart Projector functions using an Amazon Firestick, so included with your stay is access to Amazon Prime TV, Netflix, and Disney Channel. Rain or shine, you're sure to have a wonderful stay!

The entire tiny house/surrounding outdoor area/deck/fire pit is yours during your stay! You have access to all kitchenware, myriad spices, anything in the pantry, fridge, etc.  I LOVE coffee, and I want my coffee-loving guests to have a great coffee experience here! A french press and pour-over coffee maker/kettle are provided for those who prefer a richer coffee experience--though a normal drip coffee maker and creamer are also provided. Being Minimalist does not mean minimizing on life's pleasures!

Things to note:


-A deep-cleaning of the entire tiny house is done between each and every guest stay. That means:

-Fresh, clean linens are always used

-The furniture (chairs/couch/lounging area) is sanitized and cleaned

-All touched surfaces throughout the house are cleaned (every surface but the walls)

Others on the property:

-There may or may not be other people renting out the tiny houses 100 feet North and 150 feet South of the house.

-During the summer months there may be some activity going on! Generally not too loud, but there may be people about, tending to the garden, etc.

-Audrey and her husband John have three small boys. In the winter months you will not see them (unless requested!) and in the summer they will mostly be playing by their house on another part of the property where you may see them from time to time, especially if John is working in the gardens. They like to "help" him.

Blue Apron:

-If you are staying for at least three days, I do have a subscription to a fresh meal delivery service called Blue Apron so you can cook your own dinner without needing to shop or bring groceries beforehand. If requested, I would be happy to order a few fresh food delivery meals for you to cook and enjoy during your stay. Blue Apron offers two meals for two people for $53, three for around $70 (plus up-charges for substitutions and additions), and four meals for $85. Blue Apron also offers meals for 4 people for an additional cost. If you book a few weeks in advance and would like to try this option, let me know.

Winter ONLY:

During the winter months in order to avoid freezing water lines, there is a chance the tiny house may use its off-grid water system, which includes a water container inside the couch and a small water pump to get the water to all the house water pipes. The pump is not excessively noisy, but does make some noise, and it comes on whenever you turn on a faucet; so just be aware of that before you book. It wasn't used or needed these last few years, but just know that there's a chance it could be needed.

The Property:

Our property is so peaceful! Away from the city, away from the stress. You can see the stars at night and listen to the birds chirp in the morning. As a guest here, you'll have access to the entire property: 80 acres! Feel free to go exploring--except in the space with the cows. Don't do that. But overall, just let loose and be free! Hike the big hill by my house; the view is truly unparalleled. Or you may just prefer to sit on the back deck and take in the lovely views from there, or walk the trail circling two acres of the property. I also have two very friendly cats who would love a little pet if you have a second. There is a lot of farm land and hills surrounding us, and some beautiful gardens next to the tiny house. Walking the trails through the trees is a must! It is beautiful. Such a tranquil, remote setting!

On-site Activities:

Lawn games: I have a selection of lawn games for summer fun: Corn hole, Bocce ball, Giant Jenga, a Soccer and Football, Big Dice (for Yard Yahtzee and 19 other dice games), Croquet, and Kube (this one is super fun!).

Bonfires: The fire-pit across from my house is for your exclusive use and enjoyment! Chairs, side tables, and wine glass holders are provided.

Fire pit on the Deck: Don't want to get your clothes all smokey? Relax out on the large back deck with a glass of wine in front of the (propane fueled) fire pit! Lay in the hammock and star-gaze, and just enjoy the sounds of nature around you.

Outdoor kitchen facilities: Enjoy the grill and outdoor griddle to cook! 

Hiking: Hike along the trail circling the property, or go off the trails and hike the hills on your own!

Grill: Make a juicy steak and crisp veggies on the grill! a large grill is provided for your use!

Picnics: Use the outdoor picnic table/benches, or grab a blanket and find one of countless spots on the ground! Picnicking whilst taking in the panoramic views on the top of the huge hill would be a windy, yet memorable highlight!

Bird and animal-watching: We have many varieties of birds and animals on the property, specifically in the grove on the North side of the house. Also, on the South side of the house, the 21 acres there is being newly converted into a bird and wildlife sanctuary via the C.R.P. program! Currently, many varieties of native wildflowers and trees are being planted, so we will see which birds and animals come to visit this habitat!

Off-roading: Bring your ATV for the property and low-maintenance roads (there are plenty!).

Nature-gazing in comfort: Enjoy the sweeping views of hills and nature from inside the house, without fighting mosquitoes or sweltering or frigid weather! Take in the beauty, minus the elements that can make it uncomfortable. This was a main goal of mine when designing this house--so enjoy!

Snow activities: Bring your snowmobile or snowshoes during the winter; the place is perfect for those types of activities!

For kids:

Slip-n-slide: If kids are coming, I like to set up a long, home-made slip-n-slide down a hill. My kiddo guests love it!

Nature walks: Not only are these popular with kids, they are educational! Click here for a good one!

Snow fun: Snow angels, snow forts, and snow men are kid-pleasers in the winter! Plenty of snow and space to accommodate!

The Community and our Shared Space:

This tiny house is on a vast 80-acre property! My friends John and Audrey live on the property about 400 feet north in a farmhouse on the other side of the grove of trees, and I live on the property in the neighboring teeny tiny house! We are building a tiny house community! We all love Jesus, and have a passion for seeing Him heal and restore people. Basically, we are a few friends living in community together outside of Ponca, NE. Specifically, this Tiny House is about 150 feet east of another tiny house (I call it my "Teeny Tiny Cabin") that I'm currently living in. It is also about 100 feet south of another cabin (which is rented out on Airbnb by my friends). Strategically-placed sections of privacy fence effectively screen the other tiny houses from view. The land owners live in the original farmhouse on the property (about 400 feet north of the Tiny House, through the tree grove). If I am not on the property, my co-host Audrey is there most of the time and can answer any questions you have. John and Audrey are amazing people, and I hope you are as blessed by them as I have been!

During the late Fall and Winter months, this will be a peaceful oasis; there won't be people working outside much--too cold! During the temperate months of the year, this is a working farm, so expect us to be investing in and improving the land and property during the day; we may be working on the garden or food forest or the pond. Let us know if you’d like to get your hands dirty by helping John with some permaculture work (he does this on the weekends and in the late afternoon/early evening on week days)--or just relax!

The Surrounding Area/Off-site Activities:

The town of Ponca is an 8-minute drive East of my house, and there you will find a grocery store, a few pizza places, a gym, post-office, pharmacy, doctor's office, etc. If you want a larger town, South Sioux City, NE and Sioux City, IA are a 30-minute drive East. Population of about 120,000--so lots of shopping, eating places, etc, in that area. Vermilion is another medium-sized town that is about 20 minutes West of us. I have specifics and details about different places nearby which you will find in the Tiny House Manual when you arrive at the tiny house, and also in this guidebook I've created.

Guidebook: This is a book of recommendations for a plethora of restaurants, activities and attractions in the surrounding areas I've put together for your use! Feel free to check it out and plan accordingly!

Ponca State Park: Ponca State Park is only a 10-minute drive away, and I highly recommend visiting! It has some fantastic hiking the trails! Beautiful, regardless of the time of year! I've also seen people biking along the roads in the park.

Off-roading: We are far out into the countryside, so you're welcome to bring your ATV's and ride around! Dirt-bikes or mountain bikes are also fine here.

Canoe/fishing: I have a canoe you can take to the nearby lake (it's on a small trailer, if you have a hitch and 1 3/4 ball to pull it). 1.5 miles from my tiny house is Powder Creek Lake--which is great for fishing or kayaking/canoeing.

Ice-fishing: I've never had someone do it, but it's worth a try! Set up your station on Powder Creek Lake!

Transportation to the property:

During seasons when it is very wet, it is a good idea to have a 4-wheel drive vehicle to traverse the 4 miles of gravel road leading to my house. The road tends to become quite muddy and can be tricky to drive in, so 4-wheel drive is best if there is a massive amount of snow melting, or after days of heavy rains. Additionally, snow is usually cleared out by the city fairly quickly after snow falls, but occasionally they have waited a day or so to do so. This can make it difficult to drive in the meantime in a vehicle without medium to high ground clearance (I have a Jeep Cherokee, which works great). Before your stay, I will be in communication with you about potential weather issues and give details about the terrain then if you or I have concerns.

**There is another lone Tiny House about 1/4 mile north of Big Gray that is under construction. It is gray, white, cedar, and has blue doors. Do not turn there; that tiny house a new project, and not ready for visitors. If you keep going for another 1/4 mile, you'll see Big Gray Tiny House, where you'll stay! If there's any confusion, please call :)

Go to the town of Ponca, NE. You will need to go on Highway 12 to get there. Stay on highway 12 and you will pass Ponca on the right if you’re coming from the southeast. On the Northwest side of town (you’re still on highway 12) you will see “Butch’s Propane” which has a small Statue of Liberty statue and a huge propane tank the size of a school bus. Hard to miss. Take the first left (west) after Butch’s propane, and follow that gravel road for approximately 4 miles. Always keep to the right of there’s a fork in the road. When you get to 587 Ave, turn right (north). You will now be able to see my tiny house to your right. Go 1/4 mile and turn at the first right —that’s my driveway.
