Family of 4 in 236 sq ft modern tiny house - Architects selfbuild tiny garden house

Today we're featuring an amazing tiny house that is a modern version of a traditional Danish allotment hut. Back in the day, allotment huts were owned by people living in apartments who didn't have a garden, and who could then use the allotment to grow fruit and vegetables, and to enjoy the fresh air. The house is 236 sq ft, and every square feet is used for a purpose, with many design details. It was build 9 years ago by Karen Jelnes and her husband before they had children; after they had kids they build bunk beds on top of their own bed, which is a really clever solution. The house is really beautiful and unique, and they build it small on purpose to make more space in the garden to grow vegetables, berries and fruit that the whole family can enjoy!

Oldest US mall blends old/modern with 225-sq-ft micro lofts

The Providence Arcade is nearly 2 centuries old, but when Evan Granoff bought it was considered one of the city’s most endangered properties. Realizing that the demand for commercial space would never match that for downtown housing, Granoff decided to convert the upper floors of the country's first indoor mall into tiny loft apartments. At just 225 square feet, the smallest units would have fallen below the city’s minimum size standard for apartments so Granoff decided to classify his micro-lofts as a rooming house. The Providence rooming house code allows for rooms as small as 80 square feet (single occupancy), as long as they don’t have a cooking facility. Fortunately, for Granoff and tenants, a microwave is not considered a cooking device. The tiniest units rent for $550 per month, almost half the city average, and all of them rented out almost immediately (there’s now a waiting list). Many of the tenants don’t spend a lot of time at home. We talked to Naz Karim, a doctor who works emergency room shifts, and plans to spend much of the year on a fellowship in Africa and Sharon Kinnier who uses the loft for when she’s working in a Providence lab formulating organic cosmetics (she spends the rest of the time with her husband in Washington D.C.). The bottom floor of the mall is still commercial, but Granoff limits it to micro retail so no chains and they’re all focused on fashion and art design. We stopped in at nude boutique where Amy Stetkiewicz, one of the 6 local designers, was closing up shop downstairs from her micro loft.

Tiny House w. downstairs bedroom and Murphy Bed | Super Bright & Big Bathroom - THOW

We had a tour in this gorgeous Cornerstone Tiny Home, and we really loved it! This model has a downstairs bedroom, a murphy bed that when folded up leaves space for table, and a big bathroom with lots of natural light. It's painted in light blue and white, giving it a really bright and spacious feel to it. They also included a lot of custom build items, such as a remote controlled tv cabinet, that hides the tv when you're not using it - and there are plenty of opportunities for even more customizations!

School Bus Conversion | Rebuilt as hostel (for living on the road)

In May we visited Tim and Val who live on the road in their American school bus. They have turned it into a hostel on wheels, with space for 6 guests besides themselves, their daughter and the dog. They use the bus to visit good snowboarding spots in the winter season and during the summer they mostly go kitesurfing. Tim is a snowboard instructor, and this is what they do for a living. Instead of an RV they have rebuild this old bus, to get their own take on RV living. The bus is completely rebuilt and renovated on the inside, in order to make it a home on wheels for the young couple, their daughter and dog. Van life has never been more comfortable.

A month ago we visited this cool tiny studio apartment in Amsterdam. This space is called Zoku, and it is a huge building with more than 100 small apartments for tiny living, and this is what they look like.

They are designed for online nomads, and people who travel frequently, to have a micro apartment space to dwell inside the city center of Amsterdam. It's connected to a shared office space / co-working space in the heart of Amsterdam, to make it easy to network and work during the stay. These tiny apartments can be rented short or long-term, making them the perfect substitute to hotel rooms.

The architects and idea people behind this concept really thought this design through. The whole idea of the sliding staircase that leads up to the loft space is just genius.

You find everything you need from a tiny bathroom / toilet, kitchen, dining area and a sleeping loft, you can access from the sliding staircase. The loft part of the apartment doesn't seem like it's there when the blinds are closed.
