Tiny Places to Reside
An article in Country Living showcased 12 tiny houses and here are my favorite four that made the list:
A 196 SF house built on a 24-foot flatbed in Boise, Idaho by Macy Miller.
A transforming A-Frame home that expands 80 to 110 SF with a mini loft created by architectural team David and Jeanie Stiles.
One of 14 cabins at Blue Moon Rising, an ecotourism retreat, in McHenry, Maryland. The retreat is for rent and was designed by Hobbitat and is a 250 SF vacation home.
A micro home on Florida’s St. George Island that is built to withstand hurricane-force winds. It is a 325 SF + loft and can sleep 2-4 people building.
These are all impressive, small and simple, new ways to live but I have to ask why are they all country dwellings? Wouldn’t it be easier to create urban spaces that are down-sized since the space that is allowed is already pint-sized?
