Freya’s Cabin

It seems like a lot of artists and pro architects are getting more and more interested in shedworking and tiny house design. Freya’s Cabin

Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts

There’s a new book out on tiny houses called Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts (And Whatever The Heck Else We Could Squeeze In Here!). It’s the creation of Derek Diedricksen. Humble Homes, Simple Shacks, Cozy Cottages, Ramshackle Retreats, Funky Forts

Zero Energy Casita

While this 1000+ square foot house isn’t tiny, it is a good example of how new technology and reclaimed materials can be blended in a new energy efficient home with a traditional appearance. Zero Energy Casita

Palladio’s Escape Cottage

You might have seen this on Facebook over the last few days. It’s the prototype for a tiny house kit that the builder hopes to sell as prefab components or a complete house. It’s a really amazing design too and looks custom, not like a prefab. This variation is 412 square feet and would cost […]

Gypsy Wagons

Twelve Cubed

Here’s a great little 12x12x12 cube tiny house from British Columbia, Canada. The creator has packed a lot of function and sophistication into this tiny space and is now offering to build tiny houses just like it for clients. Twelve Cubed

Garden Office Kit

I really wish more American companies would jump in on the tiny house (garden office) bandwagon. There are so many great designs for modern manufactured tiny buildings coming out of the UK, like this one from Garenberg. To top it all off this beautiful little building comes as a kit the owner-builder assembles themselves. Garden Office […]

Fold-Up Table

This is an extremely simple idea done very well. It’s a fold-up table with flip out table legs that doubles as a picture frame. I can totally see how a set of fold-up benches could expand the functionality while not taking up any extra space. Fold-Up Table

Habitat for Artists

This is an interesting project run by Simon Draper. It’s a funky little tiny house artist community. You can read the whole story on Simon’s website. Here’s a short quote that summarizes the project: Draper,who has long been working with concepts regarding habitat/shelter in his own art practice will provide each artist with a basic […]
