At times I still wonder if 130 square feet is too small, but here is another example of a house this size that packs a lot of punch by utilizing the vertical. Today’s post was pointed out to me by a reader, thanks Sergio! I have been seeing a lot of houses and apartments that are utilizing this drawer/sliding style of beds which I really like. The elevated level brings depth to the house, but I wonder how it impacts the resident’s perception of size. Does breaking the small space into two levels make it feel smaller or bigger?
This is a hotel room in New South Wales. The resort hosts 12 canvas style tents and a restaurant, all of this is only a few steps away from the beach. What I like about this design is the congregated metal roofing used at wall sheeting matched with the dark wood floors. While this isn’t a complete house, this would certainly serve as a great temporary home while you build your tiny house on some land.
I found this really great shelf and it was a really interesting idea and seemed to have a design quality to it that resonated with the attention to detail that tiny houses do. Here is what I found out about the shelf:
Unfortunately, the shelf is a concept only, but with the attention it’s getting we’re hoping it will become a reality. That said, built into the shelf is a powder coated aluminum block that slides along a track allowing you to secure a small or large number of books. The block tightens into place using a wingnut below the shelf. It’s designed by Colleen Whiteley and measures 41″ long by 8″ wide by 11″ high.
I posted a photo of the outside of this house a long time ago, but wasn’t able to come up with any more photos. I have a fascination with modern houses that I am torn over, but this is a very normal house when it comes to the modernity spectrum. The house is 146 square feet. The house was built in Finland in less than three weeks costing $10,500.
