This Big Modern Tiny House is Pure Luxury - Full Tour in 4K

Phil from Minimaliste Tiny Houses gave us the keys to the Sakura for an afternoon and we fell head over heels in love with this open concept mini mansion. We're excited to share a full tour with you so you can see the floor plan, interior design, and space-saving solutions Phil and his team came up with. The extra width (10 feet wide vs standard 8.5 feet) and the full-height bedroom over the gooseneck make this tiny house on wheels feel like it could be a real long-term housing solution for a lot of people. Not just an in-between housing option that you might grow out of, which is what we hear from a lot of people who are interested in tiny house living. The layout felt very functional, with plenty of storage, privacy, and comfort. From the comfy sectional couch with storage under each cushion to the spacious galley kitchen, from the washing machine to the full bathtub. There isn't much this tiny house isn't missing. There are lots of space-saving ideas in this house, the best of which is probably the coffee table that converts into a full-sized dining room table. And the couch benches can easily be reconfigured to be a dining room. This tiny house is designed to be on the grid, and hooked up to hydro and water. It does have a Nature's Head composting toilet which is pretty neat. The heat source is in-floor radiant heating, and they've also installed two Lunos heat recovery ventilation vents to ensure there's always fresh air coming into the house, and to help control humidity levels. The tiny home also has a reading loft, which is also the spot where you can access the ladder to the rooftop deck for stunning views.

Tokyo's impermanent skinny house made to age well with owners

Inheritance taxes on land in Japan means plots often get smaller as they are passed on. This “divide and sell” phenomenon in Tokyo translates into some very tiny home sites. When architects Masahiro and Mao Harada were tasked with creating a home on a lot only 2 meters (6.5 feet) wide at its narrowest point, they chose to interpret small as “near” and use the small scale to their advantage. On the narrowest portion of the lot, along the street, they created a “gatehouse”: used as both an entryway and offices for the clients. The lower level is a gallery for the wife’s art, which is mostly, appropriately, very tiny objects. The second floor, accessible only by a small, wooden ladder, houses the husband’s office with walls lined with books and movies (he directs commercial). Everything in the Gatehouse is within touching distance, and this is important, and a positive thing. Masahiro calls this type of design “peach skin”. “The nearness between the materials and my eye make clear the very small grains, like a peach skin, so the resolution is richer. When you see big things from a distance you can miss details.” Behind the Gatehouse, the lot opens up a bit to accommodate the rest of the home. To comply with building codes limiting home height, the Haradas chose to build the home a few feet underground. Again, they chose to see this as an advantage, allowing for a partly submerged bedroom and bathroom, that allow one to feel “like an animal” while having a bath in the ground or “like an insect” when lying on the bed, at eye level with the plants. After the small, intimate room downstairs the completely open, and high-ceilinged, upstairs feels large. Here one wall is dedicated to a kitchen (partly camouflaged behind tan doors and cabinets) and the other to a full-wall bookshelf which is also structural. Masahiro explains the benefits of using vertical shelf supports that are narrow and very close to each other: the material is cheap; it can be brought in by hand; and it can be created without heavy equipment and instead, by skilled craftspeople. For the interior finish on both the walls and the floors, they used MDF (medium-density fiberboard) both because it is very affordable, but also because it resembles the paper walls in traditional Japanese homes. “Here we use paper and wooden materials and everything can return to the earth, so the time scale is near, or small,” explains Masahiro. “We are always thinking about scale. Scale isn’t just big or small. Scale is also time. This building has a permanent quality, but it also feels ephemeral. This house lives with people, and dies with people, and that’s a good thing.” Mount Fuji Architects: http://fuji-studio.jp/ Original story: https://faircompanies.com/videos/tokyos-impermanent-skinny-house-made-to-age-well-with-owners/

Everyone was laughing at his HOUSE, until they went inside...

10 TINIEST HOMES OF ALL TIME One of the slogans of the Swedish company IKEA urges to think boldly. However, it would rather seem that they are far from bold thinking when all their proposals for interior design are limited to the principles of comfort and practicality. The heroes of our next video are not afraid to make bold decisions – They build houses on the water or even take them on the road with them. With that said, check out our top 8 smallest and the most comfortable houses. GREDIT: 1. Tokidoki Traveller https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAKZ2vtm_-hfqeCGTNNbZqA 2.

OMG!! This Tiny House May Look Small, But It Fits A Family Of Three And A Dog

This Tiny House May Look Small, But It Fits A Family Of Three And A Dog. One family in Belarus has moved into their do-it-yourself micro house which takes up only 16 m2 (around 160 square feet) and where every single inch is put to good use. The family of three-and-a-half (that’s their dog), started the project when they found themselves paying over $500 for rent in the city of Minsk every month. So instead, they made a smart investment of only $4600 (that includes the furnishings) and built this micro house. Inside it has all of the necessary amenities: a bathroom, a kitchen, living space, and even a washing machine.

“House Zilvar” Is A Small Wooden House With An Unusual Shape

“House Zilvar” is a small wooden house with an unusual shape. The home’s distinctive appearance is the result of what is essentially a shed roof that twists and folds along the length of the house, changing the direction of slope from one end to the other. Located in rural Bohemia, it was designed by Prague studio ASGK Design for a family of three who wanted a small energy-efficient house that would bring them closer together. The entrance is at one end of the house, together with the bathroom and storage closets. The rest of the 58.0 m2 (624 ft2) ground floor is an open living area comprised of an eat-in kitchen in the middle of the house and a lounge space at the far end Two separate bedroom lofts overlook the living area, allowing for easy communication between family members. Although both lofts overlook the living area, they cannot be seen from each other; the lowered roof valley in the middle divides the upper volume of the house in two, giving the bedrooms a degree of privacy. Each loft is reached by an industrial-style steel staircase. The ground floor is pinched in the middle, with an inset terrace pushing into the side of the house. That together with the roof shape results in a very dynamic space where more or less of the interior is visible as you move around the living area. The architects say that the interaction of sunlight with the angular design “dramatically changes the shape of the house and makes you feel like an explorer in a canyon.” The lounge area consists of a multi-level platform with large windows facing a pond on one side and meadows on the other. There is book and firewood storage under the edges of the raised floors, as well as hatches that provide access to additional under-floor storage. The house is very well-insulated with 18 cm of mineral wool insulation in the walls covered by 4 cm fibreboard on the exterior. The fibreboard allows the walls to “breathe”; water vapor can diffuse out rather than condensing within the wall cavity. The roof construction is similar but with a thicker layer of fibreboard. All the windows are high-efficiency triple-glazed units. Photographs by Petra Hajska, courtesy of ASGK Design. http://www.hajska.cz/ http://www.asgk.cz/ Text copyright 2015 SmallHouseBliss.

While dean at Huston-Tillotson University, Jeff Wilson spent his time living in a dumpster. Despite the small space, Jeff found big inspiration that prompted him to create the future of minimal living.

In 2015, he started Kasita; an Austin-based company that builds prefabricated homes that have the option to be stacked to create an apartment building. Each home will be sold for $139,000 and has just 352 sq ft of space but there's already a waiting list! A fee of $1,000 gets you onto the list and the first of the homes begin shipping out to customers in June.

Each home has a kitchen, sleeping space, storage, a bathroom, and a small raised living room. Large windows on one end of the home help to make the home feel bigger than it is.
