I know that many tiny houses today don’t have staircases in them because people opt for ladders instead; however, I don’t think ladders are a great option for several reasons. First and foremost, there’s nothing quite like having to climb down a ladder in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. Further, as the home’s inhabitants get older, the use of a ladder will likely become more and more difficult. The good news is that a staircase can work in the right size tiny home and the space underneath it can provide for a lot of storage…” – Andrew Morrison

We cook a lot, so our consumption of gas for cooking fuel is and, without an alternative, will continue to be substantial.  While our tiny woodstove will allow us to relieve ourselves of the “need” for natural gas heating, which here in Burlington is the norm given our connection to a major supply line that comes from far away Alberta, Canada enroute to New York City, another recent find will allow us to eliminate our use of natural gas, propane and electricity for cooking. Enter the Swedish-designed and EU manufactured Origo 6000 Alcohol Range.  Designed primarily for marine applications, this range is specially designed to burn various forms of alcohol.” – Kai

“Since storage was key, we wanted to include as many cabinets as possible without sacrificing style. So why not utilize the height we gained by raising the ceiling and take the cabinets all the way up. In order to make the kitchen look bigger and brighter, we went for white high-gloss cabinet doors with accents of milky-white glass doors to add some character, both from IKEA.” - TheDesignerPad

A cleverly designed apartment packs a lot of function into a small space. Lots of great ideas here for tiny house interior design.

“When photographer Christian Schallert isn’t busy cooking, dressing, sleeping or eating, his small 24 square meter (258 square feet) flat appears to be an empty cube. To use a piece of furniture, he has to build it. Situated in Barcelona, Spain’s hip Born district, the tiny apartment is a remodeled pigeonhole loft (when Schallert first toured the apartment it was home to pigeons). Schallert collaborated with his friend, architect Barbara Appolloni, to come up with this unique design scheme, taking six months to complete. Christian says its design was inspired by the space-saving furniture aboard boats, as well as the clean lines of a small Japanese home.”

Another great idea for tucking a lot of function into a small space.

“The prototype was designed by an Uruguayan designer, Claudio Sibille. I like the way you can fit the chair into the cabinet and fold the work table down and roll the little office space into a corner. The quality of the wood is attractive and the design modern so it would work with most any decor.”

Steve posted some details and tips for constructing a simple bathroom in a shipping container cabin.

“The platform is constructed of 2″x6″ cedar boards with stainless steel screws holding it together.  The vertical support boards are cut out along the back wall to make room for the plumbing, which runs from under the kitchen cabinets to the shower platform.  The tub is a Behrens 35 gallon galvanized steel tub that I got from Amazon, of all places.”
