Space saving apartment gives a lot from a little If you don’t have a lot of space then you have to make the most of what you have. An apartment in Paris offers little by way of space, but thanks to innovative design and planning it actually does offer quite a lot. The room in the apartment manages to pack in all the facilities you would expect from a full sized apartment despite the fact that it is just 8 square meters. This space saving apartment gives a lot from a little.

A staircase can be pulled out of the storage cupboard not just to access the bed above but also provide storage space within the cupboard. A table/worktop is also hidden in the cupboard under the bed compartment, with two stools hidden in the table which can be taken out to be used and then slid away again so as not to take up floor space.

Sell Your Crap, Pay Off Your Debt, And Do What You Love! This Makes It All Possible! There’s something strange happening around the globe… but it’s awesome! Lifestyles and needs are changing, and consequently, our houses are shrinking. The tiny house movement has blown up in the past few years, shifting the traditional North American housing models towards a more practical, finance-friendly blueprint. The movement is garnering attention from people fed up with the current consumerist/utility-based lifestyle which has placed millions of people in debt. Now, the idea of living your dream is no longer a cliché. The typical American home is around 2600 square feet, while the typical small or tiny house is around 100-400 square feet. “A tiny house is any house in which all the space is being used well,” he says. This means that if two people lived in a 300 square foot pad and could call it a tiny house, then 8 people living in a 2000 square foot house could boast the same title. One of the great features of a tiny house is that you can basically create what you want.

Foot Finnish Micro-Cabin Built Small To Forego Permits © Robin Falck The image of a secluded cabin in the woods recalls the simple, idealistic idyll of Henry David Thoreau's Walden, free of the impositions of society. This beautiful micro-cabin, built beside a lake in Finland, was constructed to go under the radar of Finnish building regulations, which require one to get a permit for anything that is larger than 96 to 128 square feet, depending on the district. Anticipating a one-year stint in the military, owner Robin Falck decided to design a cabin that wouldn't require getting tangled in bureaucratic red tape. Built with a 50 square foot loft above for sleeping and storage, and a ground floor lounge/living area and kitchen and bathroom, the house is designed to maximize the allowed area, plus boosting the capacity for great acoustics and natural daylighting. On Tiny House Listings, he talks about his cabin, which he has dubbed "Nido" (or "bird's nest" in Italian): Winter of 2009/2010 I spent designing and planning the house. © Robin Falck

20 Smart Micro House Design Ideas That Maximize Space There seems to be a trend lately in building tiny, micro houses.

7 Prefab Eco-Houses You Can Order Today Ever since the early days of the 20th century, when Americans started buying kit bungalows and farmhouses from the Sears Roebuck catalog, the lure of instant housing has been huge. But in recent decades, “prefab” got a bad name, associated with shoddy construction, cookie-cutter design, and cheap, synthetic, environmentally questionable materials. Now it’s time to forget all that and say hello to the rapidly growing world of prefab and modular green homes, one where you can pick a LEED platinum or zero-energy house off a website and have it installed on your lot of choice in a matter of months. If this sounds appealing, you’re in good company.
