Top 5 Posts Of 2012

With 2012 having come to a close, I thought it would be neat to look back at what were the most popular posts of the year.  So here it goes!

1. It only yurts when I laugh

Yurts will always have a special place in my heart, it was the first alternative house I seriously considered living in.  This is a post that talks about the top 5 reasons to live in a yurt.

2. What is the tiny house movement?

I use this post as a starting point for people just getting into or learning about Tiny Houses.  It gives a general overview of Tiny Houses and some great videos, people seem to really like this crash course into our little world.

3. Living in a Shed

I have always been intrigued by the idea of taking a shed and finishing it to live in.  The advantage being that you can pick these sheds pretty much anywhere for pretty cheap and some of them actually look half decent.

4. Tiny Cottage

I really love this house, just the looks of it, the finishes, the interior… everything!


5. Tiny New York Apartments

Small apartments aren’t anything new, particularly to those who live in New York City, but even for those in the big apple, these are some tiny apartments!

Caroline’s Apartment

Today we have a 430 square foot apartment owned by Caroline, who calls the style elegant simplicity.  At first she wasn’t sure what to do with the space, but her designers helped her see that small is great, you just need to know how to work with it, not against it.

270 Square Feet Of Simplicity

There are some really interesting design elements in this house, one of my favorite is the shower, the kitchen is awesome in some ways, but in others I find it lacking.  The house itself is quite flexible in terms of use and has many multifunctional spaces.  I think the highlight of the video is him talking about the quote on his wall: simplicity is one of the most complicated virtues.

Chair Art

One thing that many enjoy about having a home is sharing it with others at dinner parties, visiting guest, having friends over for a party and other events.  But the trouble with a very small space is that you don’t have space to have a lot of extra furniture, just the space for the basics.  Here is an interesting alternative to spare seating. These are chairs that flatten out so you can paint them as wall art when not in use.

 

Living Small In The Big City

A while back I interviewed two New Yorkers who were Living it up in the big city, but in a very small way.  One of them was interviewed by fair companies and took us on video tour of her place.  You can read my interview with them here
