Small House ~ Big Style Part III

I think I’ve found my favorite tiny house.

Can’t you just see this little guy soaking up the sunlight in the high plains of eastern Oregon? Ahhhh…someday my scrub yard will come to fruition. No mowing!

Tiny home owners Andrew and Gabriella Morrison know a thing or two about design.

Somehow this house doesn’t seem so small—could it be the photography? Or does it really look like I could hold a small yoga class in here?

I’m so drawn to modern design with these little homes….like this one.  So crisp, bright and clean…yet, where in the world would I put my giant windmill in my kitchen?

I’m also a bit obsessed with small houses that involve the BEACH of some sort. Small house + hammock + sand = YippdedeeHappiness

Two things for tiny house obsessed peeps like me:

1) Tiny: A Story About Living Small is out and rentable from Vimeo. ‘Been waiting for this as I usually don’t like to pay 20 bucks to rent a movie.

2) Tiny House Nation is new and looks promising. ‘Got good reviews too!

 

This was my view from our little “drive-thru window” in the Twinkie this week.

It was a hub/wife trip and we had the best time riding our tandem around the Olympic Peninsula, taking ferries from island to island. ‘Magical time!

I have to say that I’m totally addicted to living in a small space in the summer. Everything’s within reach and it takes 3 minutes to clean. More time for adventure! I’m thinking that’s what the tiny house folks experience as well.

This is a “nighty night” from the silver bullet. ‘Hope all you friends are having a fabulous summer wherever you may be.

    • I do too. I think the key is to have them in places where you can walk to things and as a group of homes they look like a miniature neighborhood. We have a circle of tiny houses that operates as a hotel here in Portland. Really, really cute.

  1. We watched an episode of Tiny House Nation recently. It was fascinating, and would involve SOOO much simplifying. It definitely is appealing.

  2. Tiny is on Netflix too. Just read The Big Tiny, and found it very interesting. Love to look at books about compact living spaces. Have you checked out the youtube solar decathlon videos? Amazing!

  3. LOOOOOVE Andrew and Gabriella’s tiny house! My husband and I are planning on building it. Working out the details, the main one being location! We live in Florida where it is next to impossible.
