Playing house: Making tiny-home living work with kids When my husband and I bought our first house, its 800 square feet of living space was perfect for two. It was what we could afford, and it suited us. We fought rarely, lived within our means without too much trouble, loved living within easy walking distance of restaurants and parks, went away many weekends, divided up the two closets, and dumped all the extra stuff in the basement. Then we had a kid. Daycare bills made us broke, we argued 400 percent more often, and we spent more time inside. To be clear, my family does not live in a tiny house. More often that not when I see stories about people living in tiny houses, it’s a single person with not much more than a shelf full of books and a teapot. So I asked Hari Berzins, who writes the Tiny House Family blog and lives with her husband and two children, 8 and nearly 10, in a 168-square-foot home. She’s often asked what is the hardest thing about living in the tiny house. You’re still whoever you are when you move in.

Your Questions Answered: How Much Does a Tiny House Cost? - Alter Ec'Home Et voici aujourd’hui les premières photos de la construction de 2 Mobile Ec’Home dans l’atelier près d’Hazebrouck (département du Nord) : Pour le socle du Mobile Ec’Home et afin qu’il soit assez rigide et solide pour ses futurs déplacements, le plancher repose sur un cadre métallique.Peint et donc protégé, le cadre reçoit ensuite les poutres qui soutiendront le plancher. Des planches de bois huilées sont ensuite vissées sur la face inférieure (l’habitat sera surélevé par rapport au sol) Le dessous achevé, le cadre de bois est retourné et fixé sur son support métallique Et voilà l’isolant (seule concession d’Alter Ec’Home à l’industrie pétrolière, mais les contraintes liées à l’humidité nous y ont contraint) 10 cm de polystyrène ! La méthode de contreventement choisie pour le Mobile Ec’Home et à base de planches clouées en diagonale, plus léger, plus respirant et plus naturel que les traditionnels panneaux d’osb Mur à ossature bois de l’habitat écologique, insolite et nomade Mobile Ec’Home.

Tiny Houses - Tiny Home Builders What is a tiny house? A tiny house is a small house that is sized such that it can fit on a trailer. In most areas this means that it can’t be bigger than 8 feet 6 inches wide, 13 feet 6 inches tall, and 40 feet long. Why would I live in a tiny house? For many, the dream of owning their own house is only that, a dream. Another advantage of tiny houses is gained time. Another advantage is that the houses can be moved. Finally, one last reason to living in a tiny house is conservation. Why wouldn’t I just buy an RV? RV’s are great for travel, but not so great to live in. Have more questions?
