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…

tiny-houses-2014-mercers-front 600

I like the french doors and deck.  Love the windows at the top.  This design as a nice look and feel inside.  I actually like the look and the feel of this one.  Love the kitchen.

Sustainable Business Oregon: What was your motivation for living in a tiny house?

Mike Mercer: Our motivation had a number of factors — financial (and with the rental of the home we own, we have great cash flow), quality of life experiment (could our lives be just as meaningful and happy living in a small space?…so far the answer is yes) and design (Laura is a designer and had the opportunity to design our home).

SBO: What do you miss, if anything, about living in a larger space?

Mercer: We haven’t missed much at all. That said, we don’t have a place to hang art and it is hard to have more than two over for dinner, at least in the rainy season. We do have the garage of the rental house, so our bikes, art supplies, camping equipment and yard tools have a place to live.

 

SBO: What’s the most challenging part about living in a tiny house?

Mercer: For us, the most challenging part was moving in; figuring out what to bring in and what to sell. Honestly, the upsides have been significantly greater than any of the challenges. Well, OK, making the bed in the loft is a little tough on my knees.

SBO: What piece of advice would you give to others considering tiny living?

Mercer: Probably the greatest advice is to not do it on a whim. We didn’t make this choice out of necessity, it was a result of many factors: the strength of Laura’s and my relationship, our comfort with having less of our stuff around us and a desire for an adventure.

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!

Cool Little Tumbleweed Cottage | 600 Sq. Ft. | Could You Live In This?

Friday, February 14th, 2014

Taken from the Tumbleweed Blog:

Take a tour of this adorable 600 square foot home in Little Rock, customized from Tumbleweed Whidbey plans.

They might have the smallest house on the block, but one thing’s for sure: Lyndsey and Tom’s tiny cottage packs a lot of punch! As you float through the entrance, prepare yourself to be enthralled by a plethora of eclectic decor. From the vibrant couch pillows to the cozy lofted workspace, these tiny housers have created a feast for the eyes in this lovable little shelter.

Notice how the white paneling elongates the room, while a clever use of storage gives the couple’s home a wide open feel. “Little House in Little Rock” is colorful, quirky, and classy all at the same time. As Lyndsey describes her house in detail, with materials partly coming from salvaged resources, it’s obvious that this tiny houser has a special connection with her abode. A bond that only few home owners will ever know. That’s truly the spirit of tiny living!

The house glows as sunlight beams through a multitude of windows and skylights. Storage was a priority for the couple, and the house has no shortage of cubbies and shelves. But the space that really steals the show, is the couple’s gorgeous open kitchen.

At Tumbleweed we’re always amazed at what “build-it-yourselfers” can do with our plans.

Our homes come in two categories:

  1. Our “House To Go” is on wheels and range from 117 to 172 square feet. 
  2. Our “Cottages” (shown here) are built on foundations and range from 261 to 884 square feet

After seeing Lyndsey and Tom’s customizations, we felt inspired! One of our Whidbey layouts now reflects their idea of an open kitchen, which we absolutely adore!

While the average home is triple its size, “Little House in Little Rock ” perhaps has the bigger heart. Thanks to Lyndsey and Tom for inviting us into their charming home and for inspiring us with their tremendous creativity.
