A new television show in the UK will feature the construction of an off-grid tiny house.
“Kevin McCloud from that Grand Designs has got the shed bug (and who hasn’t nowadays) but he’s also got a new telly series Man Made Home which starts Sun Sunday 23 Sep, 8pm on Channel 4 – which sees him build a shed.”
Love the shape and alternative construction method of this tiny building.
“Shropshire-based MorphPODs offer two timber garden office designs for shedworkers. There’s the the MorphPOD 2.2 (2.2 metres wide, x 3.3m long internal) which is largely built in their workshop and delivered by lorry or trailer, with optional bolt-on wheels so it can be moved around on site.”
Nick Weston, the author or The Treehouse Diaries: How to Live Wild in the Woods, has moved out of his treehouse in England and has setup a new humble living space inside an old barn. By comparison he’s now living a modern life with electricity, a gas stove, and running water (just outside from a garden faucet). It might not be the lap of luxury but Nick likes it just fine and as he says, “its as cheap as chips”. Read more about Nick’s tiny house in a barn.
I think this new report from Screwfix confirms my suspicion that tiny outbuildings are much more popular in the UK than America. It’s estimated that there are as many as 30 million outbuildings in Britain, which is more than the total number of households.
If you are planning a holiday in the UK and prefer a simpler lifestyle, you might want to check out the vacation rentals Canopy & Stars offers. There are quite a wide variety of tiny spaces available like shepherd huts, domes, and tents. I first spotted this on Shedworking.
