Exterior-Night-The-Alpha-Tiny-Home-by-New-Frontier-Tiny-Homes

Very simple design and you would think with the big space in the middle being empty there would be a small kitchen and a small bathroom.  With the price tag close to 100k… the owner pulled out all the stops with a very interesting design.  I noticed this on the Tiny House Design Blog and wanted to share the pictures and talk about the wonderful things that I’ve noticed.

Clean design and a folding deck.  I also like the overhang that is created.  Part of me thinks it would be neat to have some sort of folding deck that could cover sliding patio doors that could walk out on it and could fold up and be pinned to the outer wall when moving.

Sweet.  Open wall + ice bucket 😉

The double garage door is so attractive and lets in so much light when closed or open to fresh air.

Large sink that is super sweet with avery open and wide concept.

Super large windows across from the open wall leading to the deck. Washroom under the bed.  I’m in love.

Raised floor with a great sized kitchen for prep and cooking.  Under the kitchen floor pulls out some magic…

Windows, full sized fridge, cooktop and a great little kitchen.

Samantha and Robert’s Shedsistence

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

shedsistence-side-view

Busy couple built their 24-foot 204 square foot tiny house on weekends over 14 months – and WOW!

Material cost was $30,000. Nice!

Judging from the incredibly high quality of the house, they’ve got a lot of sweat equity in their home. Just check out these interior details.

This is a great example of how an owner-built tiny home can not only compete in style with the professionals – but at a lower price plus pride in completion.

These folks spend a lot of time outdoors; so they built a special storage room for their gear.

You can hop over to their website here.

Below is a cut and paste from their “About” Page on the website:

  • The philosophy: Samantha and I have always said we will never own a king size bed because we don’t want the potential for more space to make its way between us. And we feel the same about the spaces we inhabit. Call it encouraged interaction if you will, and luckily, we really like being around each other!
  • The challenge?  We spent 30 days in 2008 living out of a Honda Civic and a tent as we traveled the United States, coast to coast and back. In 2010, we spent 30 days (legally) hopping trains from country to country in Europe with nothing more than what could fit in our 60 liter backpacks. We spent 6 weeks in 2012 navigating the rural towns, crowded cities and rugged landscape of the Patagonia region of South America, carrying all of our belongings over 1400 miles in those same backpacks. And in 2013 we packed up everything we owned into a 16’ U-haul and drove west from our roots in Western NY to Yakima, WA. One of us had a job, we did not have a place to live and we kept our mattress on top of our belongings in the box truck in case we had to spend a few nights in the back while we looked for a place to call home.  Sooo…we really expected the decision to live in a fully functioning and furnished sub-200 square foot space would come easy, yet it turned out to be a more serious and lengthy internal debate than expected. This is new territory. It pushes its occupants to question traditional standards of habitation. It re-evaluates our notion of home. It tests traditional methods of construction and it questions archaic zoning ordinances. With that said, we have yet to dive into an experience we are unsure about and not come out on the other side thankful that we took the leap.

Nick Olson & Lilah Horwitz | Glass Cabin In The Mountains

Monday, May 12th, 2014

window-house-1.jpg.662x0_q100_crop-scale

A year ago, Nick Olson and Lilah Horwitz quit their jobs to build a cabin in the West Virginia mountains. Today, that gamble seems to have paid off: their cabin sits in the exact spot where they first discussed building it. However, while the interior of the cabin is like almost any other, a mix of old wooden furniture and more modern decorations, the front facade – is anything but.

The west-facing facade is made entirely of window pieces, stitched together; Olson and Horwitz wanted to be able to capture every inch of the sunset, without having to limit their view to the confines of a single window.

Nelson Tiny Houses is a locally-owned, sustainably-produced company that builds superior tiny houses. As builders and designers, we are inspired by the mountains, forests, lakes and culture of this special part of southern British Columbia. As such, we view building tiny houses as a place where science meets art, where trade meets craft, where a shelter becomes a home.

Whether you are an existing homeowner looking to create a guest house, extra bedroom, office or rental opportunity, or new to owning your own home and looking to find a way that just makes sense, you have come to the right place. Tiny houses are bigger than they appear: they are a political movement, they are a work of art, they are a place to call home. Nelson Tiny Houses: Bigger than just a place to live.

This is the 3rd option of what I like.  I’m impressed with the large kitchen.  It’s better to keep looking and find the type that I like.  This one has stairs.  Watch the video.  It’s pretty clever in the design.  While you watch it… what do you think?  They have a great blog with the link below.

http://tinyhousebuild.com/ presents the “hOMe” tour. Our 221 SF (+128SF in lofts) was self designed and built tiny house on a 28′ trailer. Built for $22k ($33k including all cabinets and appliances), our tiny house feels spacious, roomy and totally livable. BEST house we’ve ever lived in! 🙂 During this video we take you through the entire tiny house, showing each nook and cranny and design features that are working so well. Unlike most cottagey tiny houses, hOMe has a clean, modern feel.

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?

1-general

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!

Tiny Home For Sale | $25k | What Do You Think Of It?

Friday, February 21st, 2014

The house is 10 feet wide, 25 feet long = 250 square feet of living space. Even more if you include the sleeping loft space.  This one was listed for $25,000 USD furnished.  The owners had to sell.  Seems like a pretty good deal.  I just wanted to share the photos of the inside.  I like the size of the bathroom as well as the kitchen.  What do you think?

A 160 square feet tiny house on wheels in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Designed and built by East Coast Tiny Homes.  This one has some clever storage in the Kitchen as well as some other ideas to consider for mine.
