I've look and looked and yet cannot find anyone else on here here discussing these. I've seen a few little blurbs, but nothing substantial. So lets discuss it...
They are ADORABLE!! I showed them to hubby and he was like "what? We cant live in that, its too small". A month later he was like "you know, thats not such a bad idea". Really, its shocking to think of at first. "You want to live in 160 sq ft? You're crazy!!" Then... "Hey, that's totally doable." Wow.
What I think about is, I have 20 drinking glasses, 16 dinner plates, 6 sets of sheets, about a dozen quilts, two bedrooms, a 3 person couch, an addition seat... THERE IS JUST TWO OF US!!! Me and hubby. Yes we want a family, but as the family grows, so can the home! It connects to a trailer, so moving is easy... People say, "why dont you just live in an RV?" Well, thats essentially what we're doing, only it'll look like a home, only mini!
So we're building one. I would like input from everyone about how to make it super efficiant.
So this is a rough drawing of what we're looking at. Left side is the bottom floor, and the right side are two lofts. Based on this home from Tumbleweed. http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/houses/fencl/
Idea's so far:
- single sink
- RV toilet- or tankless toilet
- 18" dishwasher (I have to have a dishwasher)
- Washer/Dryer combo
- Collapsible containers (bowls, drinking cups, colander)
- Portable burner / toaster over for baking
This dining set is awesome. The chairs fold up and store inside the table when the leafs are down. My design has wheels so it can be moved around for additional work space.
I like this idea. The three panels fold up to make a sofa (for the little sun room area) and then if my nieces come to stay the night, it folds out into a little bed! Hubby designed another that's sorta the same, but had additional storage underneath.
We want to use bamboo for the floors, walls, cabinets and countertops... basically everything!!
We want to be as green as possible.
We figure we can heat our tiny home for $60 a year. A YEAR!!! If we got solar panels, we could make money selling energy back to the electric company.
Anyway, whats right for you may not be right for you, but I think this fits us exactly. Anyone else interested? I'd like to hear about others who live in one or want to...
