Rowdy Kittens and Smalltopia Interview

Kacie Erickson did a recent interview with Tammy and Logan of Rowdy Kittens and Smalltopia that she’s allowed me to share with you. Here is what Kacie had to say:“I thought I’d share with you the interview I just had with Logan & Tammy, it was so fun getting to pick their brains…they BOTH have such a way of inspiring with words.

How We Live: Tiny Houses

A radio talk show will be talking with Tammy & Logan. The air date is Wednesday, July 11th 2012 at 9:06 AM PST.

“This is the beginning of a new series that explores how — and where — people choose to live across the Northwest. We’ll talk about the unique places that people call home: floating homes, boats, vans, pocket neighborhoods and shipping containers come immediately to mind.

We begin with tiny houses. Among people in this world, tiny homes are normally less than 200 square feet and are on wheels. They generally cost less than $30,000 and you can’t get a traditional mortgage to buy one.

Tammy Strobel and her partner Logan Smith live in a tiny home. It is 128 square feet and was built on an eighteen by six foot trailer. It has a stove that uses alcohol as fuel, a free-standing electric-oil heater, and a simple plumbing set-up. They share wireless internet with the land owners. They don’t have a refrigerator or a shower.”

Tiny House for Rent in Washington DC

If you’re looking for a place to rent in the Washington DC area you might want to check out this tiny house. The interior space is 252 square feet and will be available starting November 1st.

I really wonder why more landlords haven’t jumped on the tiny house bandwagon. It seems like there would be a high demand for small studio apartment sized individual homes.

Dome Home

Designed by architect Manuel Villa this little house was built to augment a larger home on the outskirts of Bogotá, Colombia. I really like the out-of-the-box design and the idea of a tiny dome home. Photo credit to Manuel Villa. I first spotted this on RowdyKittens.
