This week I’m sharing some of the great articles I’ve found recently about tiny homes. The small home/ tiny home trend appeals to minimalist instincts, and some of the architecture in them is amazing.
Maybe a tiny home is a counterbalance to the recent high prices in California. A small home or apartment definitely seems like a great idea here in the Bay Area, especially San Francisco. In fact, the small home trend has been talked about as a way to make rents more reasonable in San Francisco. Less space = lower rents.
Here are a few of my favorite articles about small homes:
Do you wonder how somebody can fit their life into 200 square feet? This is a profile on Shane and Carrie Caverly, a husband-and-wife team who build tiny homes. I love the details like the two-burner kitchen stove and recessed ceiling nook for plants.
How much outdoor space does a house need? This is a great gallery of tiny homes with tiny porches. I like the flat patio approach that the Yellowstone cottage uses (as well as the weathered wood). The front porch seems more spacious without railings.
It seems that living in a tiny home means more than minimizing your belongings. This article is a great introduction to the sorts of questions that tiny home dwellers might encounter. Did you know that a small home can legally be too small?
