Create 25sqft Of Extra Storage By Building These Box Stairs I know that many tiny houses today don’t have staircases in them because people opt for ladders instead; however, I don’t think ladders are a great option for several reasons. First and foremost, there’s nothing quite like having to climb down a ladder in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. Further, as the home’s inhabitants get older, the use of a ladder will likely become more and more difficult. The good news is that a staircase can work in the right size tiny home and the space underneath it can provide for a lot of storage. Below I show you a step-by-step approach to creating just such a space. In the example shown, the treads (what you step on) are 10″ deep and the risers (the height of each step) are 8 7/8″ tall and the entire unit is built from 3/4″ cabinet grade plywood.

Simple, Japanese Inspired Tiny House.. Zen Cabin in the Woods on January 18, 2012 This simple, Japanese-inspired tiny house can also be described as a zen cabin in the woods. I’ve always wanted to use that word in the description of one of the featured homes, shacks, cabins, or retreats here. Looking back, I’d have to say that the tree-house/mushroom/dome cabin I featured a while back was also kind of meditative. But not as much as this one. With it’s natural timbers, over-sized beams, natural-looking plaster walls, it seems to induce a sense of calmness just by looking at it.

Tiny Studio by Tiny Home Builders I’m back from Florida where we hosted an open house featuring our latest house design called Tiny Studio. I took lots of pictures so check them out. The plans for this house will be available on our plans page soon!” - Dan Louche at Tiny Home Builders Creative Compulsive Disorder: Remembering Zina Nicole Lahr This short clip about artist and maker Zina Nicole Lahr may be as tragic as it is beautiful. Earlier this fall Lahr approached her friend Stormy Pyeatte and asked if they might shoot a quick video for her portfolio. The video was shot and edited in just two days and demonstrates Lahr’s insatiable desire to build, invent, and “bring life to something inanimate,” a process she called her “creative compulsive disorder.” Almost unthinkably, Lahr was killed in a hiking accident in Colorado on November 20th, a few weeks after this was shot.

Tiny House In The Outback Once upon a time, I lived in Australia for a while, the thing that remember so clearly is how big the country is and how much space is available. The country is the size of the US, with a population well under 25 million, where 80% of that population lives within 50 miles of the coast, this means that the interior of the continent is very very empty. There is a strong sense of quasi cowboy feel to being in the outback, where I lived while I was there. This house not only captures that sense of the rough and tumble of the bush, but is sustainable too. In an odd way this prefab structure has a turret feel, almost medieval. This prefabricated structure is sited in an isolated mountainous of Australia.

Tiny Houses - Forge Ahead FEATURED IN TINY HOMES: SIMPLE SHELTER by lloyd kahn The first two "tiny houses" (mobile homes) I built were included with a compilation of many interesting small structures in this book about "Scaling Back in the 21st Century".If you would like to see the blog I kept while building, click here. After traveling by bicycle for three years, I was ready to have a place to put some heavy books, a sewing machine, and stored foods.In September of 2009 I began building myself a tiny house on a flatbed trailer using salvaged materials. Receiving such a positive response, in May of 2010 I began, with the partnership of fellow tradeswoman Amy, to build a second tiny house on a trailer. We completed Trailer #2 in August of 2010 and sold it. In 2011 I made Trailer #3, a studio for myself that I currently use.I am no longer building tiny houses on trailers.
