Categories: Tiny House
Wanna tax your design skills? Move into a tiny space and see what happens. Already in a tiny space? Then you know all the challenges designing such a space entails. It's also why you might be much better at being organized than your McMansion counterparts. You need to be tidy if you want to maximize your space! Much as the occupants of these postage stamp places who have perfected tiny living that enables them to live large.
This tiny house built in Berkley, CA cost $98,000 to build. (Inexpensive in the Berkley housing market, I'm guessing.) It's a Net-Zero energy house and is powered by a 1.67 Kw solar system. Rather rustic on the outside. . .
but check out its lux inside. As neat as a pin and all the conveniences accounted for, including a lofted sleeping space and compact stairs that are equal parts art and vertical bridge.
Jessica Helgerson's tiny Oregon home was featured in Martha Stewart Living and for good reason.
It's beautiful, and even though the house is small, with good organization, it's big enough for a family of four. It has a 'library' that surpasses most regular-sized homes, thanks to built-ins from floor to nearly ceiling. (Be sure to click the link to see more pictures!)
The ProtoHaus is 125 square feet of pure perfection. . .
with clever built-ins galore. Also, note the little wall mounted fireplace. Cozy!
