Dwelle’s Super Minimalist

I covered this house a really long time ago, I think it was one of my first few posts, but recently I found more photos, specifically of the inside which I wasn’t able to find before.

The smaller of the homes, named the Little Dwelle.ing is 4.9 meters by 2.65 meters (16×9.5 feet or 152 square feet) and costs around £20,000-£35,000 ($30,000-$52,000). Unlike its big sib, it’s meant to be more of a retreat, office or storage area than a main home, but it has almost all of the awesome features mentioned before. Just like in the Big Dwelle.ing, there is enough room for a bed that is lofted about the kitchen and main living area.

Lofty Approach

We have been gradually shifting from a production based economy to a service based one here in the United States.  Regardless of how you feel about this trend, it does have several impacts on us; One being that we are left with these large buildings that aren’t being used.  To meet this issue we have been retro fitting these buildings into loft apartments.  This achieves many things, first it converts what is not being utilized to valuable housing and communities.  The other upside to this is that you are up-cycling to help conserve resources.

This loft apartment is pretty neat apartment with a bed loft and a thick wall for additional storage/support.

Skinny House

So frankly, I don’t find this house particularly appealing, but in the interest of covering the topic in full here it goes.   This tiny house is a rather unique approach to housing.  With a focus on outdoor living it comes full equipped with all the essentials, a semi-outdoor living space, a grill, garden tools etc.  One really neat thing I do like is the moon roof on this house over the sleeping area.  While I think it is cool, flat roofs are notorious for leaking and keeping this clean might be less than practical.

I do really appreciate the focus on outdoor gardening, with purpose built niches for tools, watering can, wheel barrel etc.  Its dining area I think would be really fun to have a great sit down dinner with friends on a nice summer night.  All in all it is a very well appointed house that has some serious potential and has been laid out well.
