This is a pretty neat idea, I have noted before that I often struggle with how to have extra seating for when friends are over. Here is an interesting idea that as a mat, takes little space.
Here is a pretty interesting travel trailer, while it is pretty expensive (originally posted on the blog “Born Rich”), but the design concepts are neat and could be re-created. One feature I really like is the bathroom. The shower stall folds out around the person. The floor has a drain and when not in use, the stall folds flat against the wall, clearing up the bathroom area to create a open feel.
Over at Apartment Therapy a reader has turned to the blog for help trying to make a 400 square foot apartment livable.
I’m moving into my first apartment next month and I’m starting to get cold feet! I signed a lease for a 400 sq ft studio in Chicago. I’m looking for suggestions of how to lay it out and decorate it without making it too cluttered but still keeping it somewhat “homey.” I don’t know if I should try to squeeze a bed and a couch in the unit or suck it up and sleep on a futon! And, if I get a futon, how do I make that look nice?
Lend a hand with the design here
This is some amazing stuff, I am just blow away at the design of this furniture.
Every now and again you hear people whine about not having enough space, but imagine living in a closet, literally, and then paying $300k for it! I found this little jem on a British site. What I love about these really small places is that it is so small that it leaves no room for anything frivolous. Everything is useful, functional, or better yet multifunctional. It is the purest form of living in a Tiny House (technically an apartment) and I think that is where it get interesting and you can learn some really practical lessons for living tiny.
This Tiny Apartment is actually a converted broom closet, no really, at some point someone realized that they could make a quick buck and sold it as a house! The owner is actually trying to sell it, not just to move, but to move into a 600 year old castle.
