Tiny House, Big Drama


So yesterday’s post obviously brought some interesting thoughts to light, some loved it, some hated it.  While it wasn’t necessarily a very good argument against tiny houses, it did bring up a few things that are food for thought.  I think it is important to realize that tiny houses address many concerns we have with McMansions and bring us into a life that is more in tune with where we want to be.  At the same time, there are downsides.

Awesome Concept Hotel / Tiny House


Found this awesome concept for a hotel that would translate nicely to a Tiny House.  The really neat thing about this is that the skin of the structure is highly reflective so when placed in a forest it reflects the forest and almost blends in.  The skin more specifically is mirrored so it reflects outside, but you can see through it from the inside.  This affords a 360 degree view of the natural surroundings.  The architect says it would be “hung” from the tree, which seems both unrealistic and very high impact on the tree even if it could hold it.  None the less its a great idea!  Check the architect’s firm out here
