At over 700 square feet this small London home is not tiny, but could be inspiring to city dwellers looking for ways of squeezing into a tiny urban space. It also features some nice design ideas that make the most of the narrow width tiny house owner-designers might find useful.

The dimensions of their new home were far from impressive: 7ft 7in across and with just 721 square feet of space spread over three floors.” - Homes & Property

On a late March day, as winter melts into spring, to get to Ian Anderson’s dream house, you’ve got to trek over muddy paths and the remains of winter’s snow, through hillsides and country fields, cross a stone wall and endure being serenaded by a running brook surrounded by pine trees and rhododendron bushes.” – Brian Goslow for Worcester Magazine

 THE CROOKED HOUSE!  – One of the interesting architectural things in Windsor, England, next to the Windsor Castle was the Crooked House. The Crooked House of Windsor is also known as the Market Cross House and it was built in 1592!! Amazing to think that this structure has survived 421 years!

Queen Elizabeth the First was on the throne when this house was built. The Crooked House is now a restaurant. The building now stands at a marked angle, having been rebuilt with green wood in 1718.” - The On-Line Buzzletter

Internally there is adequate space for a desk, storage and shelving, which can even be built into the pod.

A full height window, glazed door and additional desk height window can be positioned to make the best use of the available natural light and underfloor heating along with recessed spotlights comes as standard.

Despite the smaller dimensions there is no compromise on the quality of building with furniture grade birch plywood reveals to the windows, door and skirtings, and sleek white painted walls.” - The Micro Pod

Between the beaches of Saunton and Croyde, perched above a right-hand point break, was a little old unloved building we call the Old Coastguard Station. It was in need of some TLC. It is tiny, exposed and legend had it that several people/ surfers from the area had tried to rent it, without success.

I tried, too. The owner is a friend of mine and I explained to him that I was the right person to move in as I was a) desperate and b) quiet and responsible and c) needed help to pick myself up. We met up and he dropped the keys into my hands. Just like that. This of course to the disbelief of everyone in the village!
