Incredible interior tiny house design. Love all the wood work. The exterior is a bit on the simple side but I like it.

Built as affordable housing for students in Lund, Sweden, this tiny cottage, which is under 12 square meters, rents for about $370 a month 2500 kronor and comes with everything a tenant might need – a sleeping loft, kitchenette with dining area, a bathroom, and study area.”

Dan is making excellent progress on his latest tiny house and how-to video series – a virtual tiny house building workshop. Last step on the exterior of this house was to finish the roof.
“I personally like the look of the metal roof, but I know it’s not for everyone. The problem is that there aren’t many alternatives that are as strong for the high winds that are experienced while moving a house and as lightweight as metal.”

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.”

Ryan shares some of the thinking behind his tiny house design process.
“When we began designing La Casita we knew we needed to think seriously about space management. I remember wishing there were more blogs dedicated to advice on designing and living in a tiny house, not just constructing one. Now I’m living the tiny life and I want to provide useful advice to those out there embarking on this exciting endeavor. Here are a few suggestions from our experience and what influenced us in our design and build. While each tip may not be useful or of interest to you, I hope it helps to inspire and assist in your tiny house design, build and overall living experience.”

You might remember the story of this young man building his own tiny home. He started the project when he was 16.
“Austin Hay has grown just as much as his tiny house has. However, the semi-famous young man seemed unfazed by the attention his house was getting on this sunny day in October. Dozens of people visited his tiny build last Saturday, including the parents of Kirsten Dirksen, who filmed Austin when he was 16 years old.”
