Video | Tiny House | Inside The ProtoHaus + Mobile Office Build

Friday, March 7th, 2014

I think I want to “paint out” my Tiny House to an “off-white” colour from finding a picture on Tumblr of a Tiny House that was painted out. I’ve discovered the two people who live in that house in the States and have some other pictures to share of inside their home.

Even though my Tiny House will be about 578 sq feet… this little one is about 125 sq ft on the main floor (not including the loft).

Ann Holley wanted to create an off-grid, transportable tiny house that would be technically an RV, but with an aesthetic that wouldn’t feel like living in an RV. What she created with her partner Darren Macca is a 125-square-foot “stick built” home with a cedar exterior and a refreshing and expanding all-white interior.

The ProtoHaus has proven to be a truly portable home, making several cross country journeys. The couple originally built the home during a summer on her parents’ property in Colorado. They then drove it 1,500 miles to Alfred, New York where they lived in it for a year while Holley was in grad school. Then they drove it back to Colorado where they parked it on a traditional lot in Longmont, Colorado.

Could you live in a Tiny House? Could you try and live with less and try and have a bigger life?

Below is a little video taken before all of the finishing touches were added. The cost for this house was $25,000

Video below of inside the ProtoHaus. I find it neat to watch the videos to get a better understanding of what it will be like living in one.  I’m going to use Goodlife Fitness for the “Three S’s”… but there are so many options to consider.

 

For their next project they wanted to create a tiny “flexible space”, something that could function as a guest house or a mobile office. The ProtoStoga just 40 square feet and it’s design is “a hybrid between a Gypsy Vardo, Airstream-esque Trailer, Conestoga Wagon and a Shepherd Hut”. At under 1,500 pounds (the Protohaus is 9,500), Macca can tow it with his 4 cylinder car and often uses it to cut his commute. He leaves it in a park across from his work and instead of commuting home, he camps out in it.

The Tiny Tack House | Tiny Living Inspiration | Could You Live Simple To Have More Life?

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

Came across a blog that my buddy Drew shared with me. Just wanted to share a blog post that they shared that provides a great look inside where they live. Check them out: http://chrisandmalissa.com/

It’s interesting to look inside them from pictures on blog posts to try and get an idea of what it might be like to live inside one. Here is some images and text from them below…__________________________

Here are the newest photos of The Tiny Tack House. You will find both some interior and exterior shots that include new construction. You will notice a second workstation was added opposite the wall mounted iMac. Malissa built a beautiful table out of some old pallets. Now it serves as our outside dining room 🙂 We also added a hummingbird and bird feeder. We have many regular visitors including: American Goldfinch, Chickadee, Quail (who is very vain…he admires his reflection in the grill & lantern), Anna’s Hummingbird, Steller’s Jay, Black-capped Chickadee, House Finch & more!

We have been working on a garden near the house as well (photos to come).

Hope you enjoy the new photos!
