Tye River Cabin

While I really prefer inexpensive do-it-yourself housing solutions it’s always inspiring to find a really well done architect designed small home. This one was designed by Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects and is a cavernous 600 square feet. While the giant opening glass walls may not be very practical and seem a bit out of place with such an extravagant interior it seems like a great design approach for someone who wants to be more connected with their natural environment. It’s definitely worth a look though.

Tiny House Zoning Success Story

Here’s a great story about some folks in Washington state getting approval for a tiny house community by showing their local planning department how multiple small homes are not really much different from an apartment complex in terms of units-per-acre and square-feet-per-unit. When a property is zoned multi-family a community of tiny houses can be possible without changing the rules.
