With the roll out of Tiny House Craftsman (see the post here) we are also adding to the line up our Tiny Workshops! You might have noticed a new link on our menu – “Events” – which will bring you to where you can sign up for them. Our online tiny workshops are a quick way for you to learn everything you need to know about tiny houses, how to build, what the life is like, and much more!
Each session is 30 minutes long on a specific topic and you can get all your questions answered. Our first session will be an intro to tiny houses where you can get a lot of your burning questions answered. Followed up by that we’ll get down to the nitty gritty and focus on particular topics.
Let me know in the comments if there are other times/days that people want, if we have enough I can add a session!

I have always been interested in table ideas that I can pull out for a dinner party, but have tucked away when it is just me. I usually will eat my meals watching a TV show (the only time I watch TV) if I’m alone, go out with friends, or go to my families house for dinner. I like having people over for meals, but in the end it may happen one-two times a month. Though that is the life of a bachelor I guess.
so this table breaks down to a smaller size. While its a coffee table I like the concept and it could be done on a larger scale.
Harbour Attic is an apartment located in the charming fishing village of Camogli, in the province of Genoa, Italy. With a main bedroom and then a multifunctional space that has a hidden bed in the floor, this place can sleep quite a few people in it.
“The house is located in the old fishermen village of Camogli. The project aim was to build two bedrooms, a studio, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, despite the gambrel roof and the very small floor surface. That led to a custom-cut apartment, where each room is a furniture: after you have used it, you can close it.”
Today I’m asking for your help: I have been trying to find a chair that can serve as a decent desk chair, but also something that is super comfortable enough to lounge in to read a book or watch a movie. Up until this point I have had two chairs (or a desk chair and a couch): One for working and one for relaxation.
If you think about it, they are quite different. A desk chair is more up right, not made for laying back and kicking your feet up. While a lounge chair typically allows you to stretch out, lean back and take a load off. Currently the chairs I have a standard desk chair and then an Ikea POÄNG chair with an ottoman. The POÄNG chair is incredibly comfortable and leans pretty far back. You couldn’t easily work at a desk in this type of chair.
It seems like a lot of my generation really likes to use there laptop on their lap while sitting on the couch, but I can’t seem to do any real work when trying that. Since I work from home, I do need a place to get serious work done, which it can be tricky to both live and work in a tiny house. I also have a desktop, so I need to be at a desk for that reason as well.
What chair can I use for a good desk chair, that is also super comfortable to read or watch in?
