Tiny Lake House

This Tiny House is absolutely darling.  It reminds me of a birdhouse in a way.  It is 250 square feet with another 125 square feet for the deck.  Resting on a simple foundation, the designers used SIPs (structurally insulated panels – see more about them tomorrow)  for the floor and the roofs.  This allowed this house to be constructed in 3 weeks!  The process included using recycled materials, a water catchment system, a efficient heating and cooling system and LED/CFL lights through out.  With a small sleeping loft and a front that opens like a garage door, it has a very simple and practical approach.

Converted Micro Maid’s Quarters

This tiny house was once a maid’s quarters long ago, but now has been converted to a full on house.  With only 182 square feet this tiny house packs a lot in.  With a full bathroom, kitchen, bed loft, and laundry it is pretty impressive.  The stairs  are all pull out drawers that server as the storage for all the apartment.

Basement Conversion To Tiny House

So here is a really interesting Tiny House.  What is so interesting is that the owner wanted to convert the basement area of their house to a self contained home, weather it was a rental property or a place for a teen, I’m not sure.  But they started the entire process by picking the entire house up, scooting it to the side then building the whole basement, finally they replaced the house.  It seems rather a lot of work to get a finished basement, but the original basement was more like a root cellar.

Regardless, I can’t help think that the designer might have take some inspiration from Tiny Houses.  Regardless, I really love the main living area, with a bright interior and a ledge surrounding the room for storage, it looks both functional and comfy.  It is pretty impress that this is a basement!

This House Rocks!

Ok Ok So I couldn’t resist the title, but this house is pretty awesome.  Not only is it visually interesting to look at, the construction method is so innovative and yet elegantly simple.  It also require very little specialize materials.  I am sure the cement was a very special mixture, but make sure to check out the video on this one, because it really shows the process well.

One Cool Habitat

This is designed by a firm called “One Cool Habitat” it uses a 20 foot shipping container with some high end finishes.  Designed to be a flexible space  I don’t get the feeling they intended it to be a full on house, but I think you could work it.  With custom windows and wooden floors, the space is warm and larger feeling.  The whole thing is designed to be transported via a ship or truck.
