Tiny House Talk – Small Spaces More Freedom

Tiny House Talk – Small Spaces More Freedom

The Tiny Life 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. The houses are built on trailers since they are too small to be allowed as permanent structures according to most local code enforcement agencies. 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? Looking for a house for your dog or maybe just a small project to get you started, take a look at our modernDog dog house.

First weekend : who are you | The Tiny House Story Welcome to the story. This blog is about a tiny person building a tiny house. She wanted so much to change the world. And she realized, she must do it where she’s at. We met at St. The first days we worked with our minds. We visited a lot of good spots to get some ideas and to see how the town already works with recycling and upcycling. Our first weekend was there in a get to know each other spirit. Next time we will start to build on the tiny tiny houses. And shortly, in Swedish, for the sake of the search engine. Varja

Tiny House Pins TinyHousers | minimotives Hi Macy. I’ve been meaning to make a list like this one for years, but, alas, now I won’t have to. Thank you so much for taking it on for all of us. I suppose it speaks to the fragility of my own unfettered ego that the first thing I did here was look to see if my closest friends and I are included. It’s cause for celebration when old-timer-tiny-housers like Les Walker of “Tiny Houses”, Dee Williams of PAD, Greg Johnson of The Small House Society, Steven Marshall of Little House on a Trailer and me can now google “tiny house” and find so much great stuff like your list. We couda’ been contenders, Macy! But seriously, Macy. Jay Shafer fourlightshouses.com

Rich the Cabin Man's Extra Long Tiny House on Wheels Now here’s a tiny house on wheels that more folks might be open to. To me it’s like a breed between a Park Model and a Tiny House. Most park models are wider than 8’6″ so you need a special permit to tow it. But not this one. Rich Daniels built it at just 8′ wide so you can still tow it yourself. Images: Rich Daniels This little cabin is 8′ x 34′ so a total of about 272 square feet of space without including the loft living space. Bathroom Building a House on a Trailer If you’re curious as how this all works (how to build a stick built house on a trailer) I highly recommend this book.

If you’re interested in Rich having a cabin built for you head on over to his website right now to learn more and let him know I sent you. Would you build a cabin on a trailer this long? How do you feel about a longer than normal cabin on wheels?

He says, it turned out wonderful and I’ve been living in it for about 2 weeks now. I enjoyed building it so much that I’m going to build another one. The humanure toilet is working great. I have a 10 gallon water heater for the sink and the shower that works beautiful. It took me less than 3 months to build the tiny house.

Tiny House Blog | Jay Shafer Oprah’s “Tiny House Man Expands”: Not a Story About Weight Gain I should really start paying more attention. I didn’t even know that this new piece on Oprah’s Where Are They Now was available online until I stumbled upon a link through Alex Pino’s Tiny House Talk. Thanks, Alex Pino. Microtopia is Mega-Good It was nearly two years ago when Jesper Watchmeister and his film crew caught a plane out of Stockholm to create a documentary about the international trend towards smaller, well-designed houses. The piece is called Microtopia, and its production values are high. Watch the trailer for this brilliant film below: MICROTOPIA – a documentary about micro dwellings, downsizing and living off the grid. - Trailer from Eight Millimetres on Vimeo.

Tiny House Design | Clothesline Tiny Homes Hello everyone! happy happy holidays and to all a good night. :) I came across a really inspiring small house (not tiny… but still very small!) Nakai House by University of Colorado students – Tiny Living in Style So this house was designed and built by University of Colorado students in collaboration with DesignBuildBLUFF for a client who lives on Navajo tribal lands in Utah. Nakai House by University of Colorado students – Interior The plan is essentially an open rectangle with lots of glazing. Nakai House by University of Colorado Students – ground floor plan and loft plan The bedroom nook is exactly what they talk about in A Pattern Language. Nakai House by University of Colorado students – Interior bedroom nook built into storage wall. The client is a collector of artifacts and memorabilia so one interior wall is entirely composed of shelving used to display her prized possessions.

Tiny Backyard Garden Cabin Photo credit The Natural Gardener Wouldn’t it be great to transform this backyard garden cabin into a tiny house with a micro kitchen, upstairs sleeping loft, living area and a bathroom? Do you think you could make all of that fit in there? I could see it working as long as everything is relatively small and some areas can also be multifunctional. It would make it a bit more challenging if you decide not to use an upstairs sleeping loft because then you have to come up with a solution for a bed downstairs with limited space. You can maybe use a murphy bed, pull out sofa, a futon or maybe even a bunk bed. Share this post here ======>>>

Archive Seattle aPodments Cash strapped minimum wage workers and students in the Seattle area are seeking and welcoming more affordable housing in their city, but the explosion of the aPodment micro housing units in Seattle is drawing new criticism in this dense metropolitan area. City officials are claiming that these 200 square feet tiny units are unregulated and skirt the city’s building laws. Many of the aPodments built by Calhoun Properties offer downtown amenities like private bathrooms and kitchenettes, lofts, security, private decks, access to public transportation, skylights, granite countertops and shared amenities like BBQs, roof decks and ADA accessible group kitchens. The city is concerned that these more condensed forms of housing, which only require a building permit, increase the density of a neighborhood but don’t provide additional parking.

Brett's Off-Grid Tiny House Moves To New Property - Living Big In A Tiny House | Living Big In A Tiny House Last week Brett Sutherland’s Tiny House made the journey from Hamilton to it’s new home at Bethells Beach on the west coast of Auckland. We caught up with Brett to see how he was settling in to his new Tiny House, find out more about the land he is now living on and to celebrate the completion of the house with his friends and family. See the full video tour of Brett’s Tiny House here. These were narrow, windy roads, but the Tiny House handled them with ease. Not a bad view on arrival. I'm a film-maker who is currently in the process of designing and building an off-the-grid Tiny House and filming the whole journey to help others who would like to do down the same path.
