Blossman’s All-Propane Tiny House Hits the Road

Blossman Gas (Ocean Springs, Miss.) has hit upon a most unique gallon-growing program. This past spring, the company unveiled its 152-sq-ft all-propane Tiny House that features 12 propane appliances. The Tiny House, which measures only 31 feet by 8.25 feet, was developed as a propane education visual. Soon after its unveiling, the Tiny House began touring throughout the 70 Blossman store communities located in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic U.S.   

Visitors who walk through the Tiny House see two space heaters, a propane fireplace, a range, refrigerator, clothes dryer, tankless water heater, outdoor fire pit, a grill, outdoor lights, an outdoor heater, and the generator that runs it all. Artificial grass and decorative fencing complete the small-sized bungalow.

Propane Only
The Tiny House runs completely on propane. This truly “mobile” home relies on two 40-gal. propane tanks to fuel the house at the different locations. Blossman employees staff the house, answer questions, and engage visitors in conversation about the benefits of propane for their homes. During its tours, the Tiny House will also be showcased at community festivals, store open houses, home shows, and community events.

Brochures are available for those touring the Tiny House. Descriptors are placed around the inside of the Tiny House to provide visitors a subtle reminder of the benefits of propane. An example of a descriptor: “Propane is used by more than 1.6 million U.S. households. As a clean, versatile energy source, propane is frequently used for zone heating, water heating, cooking, fireplaces, and clothes drying.”

Just coincidentally, the Tiny House movement is gaining some momentum across the nation. With the added interest in these miniature homes, it would seem likely Blossman’s Tiny House will draw more interest than ever. But just what is the Tiny House movement? According to the Tiny Life, a resource for the Tiny House movement, it is a social movement in which people are downsizing the space in which they live.

Simplified Living
While the typical American home is around 2600 sq ft, the typical small or tiny house is around 100 to 400 sq ft. These houses come in all shapes, sizes, and forms, but they focus on smaller spaces and simplified living.

The most popular reasons people are joining this movement are environmental concerns, financial concerns, and seeking more time and freedom.

Why a propane-powered Tiny House? It’s the ideal fuel, especially in this situation.

Now, Blossman Gas has taken the concept of the Tiny House and added the feature of living off the grid by using propane to run a home — tiny or any size — and to demonstrate the propane products that can produce economic savings and environmental benefits.
