One thing I like to say when talking about tiny houses is that it is not a certain square footage that makes a tiny house a tiny house, but a reasonable square footage per occupant. So that means that for families, a tiny house is going to be getting into the small home category and there is nothing wrong with that, in fact it’s great! So today I found this beautiful small house the has three bedrooms and two full baths, but still is reasonable in terms of space and extends living to the outdoors. The house is under a thousand square feet (not sure exactly) and was built in BC Canada.
So a while ago I introduced the “Ryan’s Tiny House” section which outlines the process of me building my tiny house, since there there hasn’t been much activity on that page except for my Tiny House Checklist. Well I had some time to get a bunch of website work done and was able to start the Building Guide section. You can access it by clicking “Ryan’s Tiny House” link in the menu or click here.
The guide is a chronological order of my building process that includes all the posts I have done to date on my house. Each section has a “read more” button to get into the details. Hope you all enjoy!
Today we have a small house that was remodeled Victorian boathouse overlooking the lake of Virginia Water in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire. The top floor of The Boathouse, once the Royal Boat Keeper’s lodgings, now serves as a spectacular retreat taking advantage of one of the most outstanding settings of the south east of England. The ground floor maintains its purpose of housing boats with two large timber doors opening outwards onto the lake. I don’t have the square footage of the home, but it is certainly on the larger side for the houses we cover, but I really liked the look and the furniture.

Today I found this house built in Chile by Alvaro Ramirez and Clarissa Elton. It is about 500 square feet and has an amazing view and emphasizes outdoor living through it opening window walls and a deck that is almost as big as the indoor space. It is heated with a wood burning stove, was built in 3 months and cost $15,000 USD to build. The house is divided into two sections divided by patio space, a sleeping area with bed and bathroom, then the other side is a living space with couches, kitchen and table.
