How to pack a whole lot of living into 221 square feet
One of the key limitations in the design of many tiny houses is the fact that they have to be built on trailer chassis. Many zoning bylaws have minimum building sizes to keep the riffraff out and the property taxes up; many building codes have minimum room sizes and other rules that make it very hard to build small. By having wheels, it becomes a recreational vehicle and it can sneak under a lot of radars. But it's really tough to design a decent space in an 8'-6" wide (exterior dimensions!) space. © Tiny House Build Andrew and Gabriella Morrison have pulled it off in their 221 square foot home and write about it (and how they live in it) on the Tiny House Blog. To our surprise we have not felt, at any point, that we have had to make any compromises or sacrifices in our self designed and built home. By putting the kitchen at one end and the bathroom at the other, they are able to use the full width of the trailer and make them generous.
