We have a small house here in the Philippines and we
call it “Bahay kubo” because it is small. You can place it in the roof
top of your house if you have. That’s the best place for it for
relaxation. Or in the garden..

I think its because I’m always looking for 1)less housework and 2)a little space to carve out JUST for me…and these fit the bill perfectly!

I stayed in the Awesomest little hotel room in Tokyo over the weekend. I was amazed at how well designed and thought out it was — bursting with amenities in, maybe 50 sq feet of space. I kept noticing additional quirks and space savers. Mysterious buttons and knobs. LOL! Yes, totally awesome.

I think these little spaces inspire us to streamline and de-junk in our ‘real’ lives. And they challenge us with the “what if”… What if I really lived in this space? I was imagining adding bookshelves lining the walls of my hotel room… but somehow, a closet bigger than the 18 inches they had provided wasn’t on my design list. I guess I must be able to survive with that one. :)

If I weren’t married, I would live in one in a heartbeat!

I fully plan to have one of these when I’m older. Extreme downsizing! And a Mini Cooper to go with it. :)

I’m not sure I could do it with the kiddos, but someday I’d like to live in a tiny house. I find them – and the accompanying lifestyle shift – fascinating. I’ve written a few posts on tiny houses myself, and have even started a tiny houses bulletin board on Pinterest. I’ll be adding the photo from this post. :)

I’ve been dreaming about a glass greenhouse- that’s all windows, and would sit a-top my apartment like a little green oasis. I would fill it with all my craft things- so my husband wont complain- and would escape up there with the dogs whenever I felt.
Clearly I’ve thought through this fantasy pretty throughly.
xoxo!

Okay, maybe not as tiny as the photos I saw, but we manage 650 sqft with a 3 person family and LOVE it. I’m obsessed with interiors of tiny houses. How do people save space? Use a space for multiple purposes? Cram all their stuff in there?
Also, I adore your blog. Has been soulfood for me.

Hmmpphh. I was inspired to make my own summer list to get us out of a rainy funk on the solstice: http://besquirrely.com/2011/06/21/the-summer-list/

Also did you see Pioneer Womans post on macarons? I thought of you! I had never seen cookies like that until you had your party post!

They remind me of an uncle who used to amuse us with stories of tiny houses and the people who lived in them. We couldn’t get enough of those stories.

I’m off to see a 220 sq.ft L41 Ultra Compact Home tonight at the preview of the Interior Design Show West! I don’t know if I’ll even fit in a house that big!?

My husband is an architect and I hope someday to build one of these for our home (when we retire).
