Incredible Transforming Tiny House – Nicknamed aVOID

In the video below videographer Kirsten Dirksen tours a transforming tiny house designed by Leonardo Di Chiara. He calls it aVOID. Inside the house appears to be a white box. But as you discover the hidden functionality inside, you also expose the warm color and texture of wood grain. There are no windows on the longer […]

Handmade Mini Kitchens

Ron Czecholinski saw my recent post on Complete Mini Kitchens and shared one that he built from some antique furniture. The only thing missing in the main unit is a mini-refrigerator, but as you can see below, that’s because a larger one was desired. If you like the idea of repurposing old furniture and prefer an eclectic […]

Complete Mini Kitchens

Building a tiny house kitchen can be time consuming depending on your carpentry skills and what you choose to put into it. Costs can skyrocket if you have expensive tastes and hire professionals to help. One option is to get a complete prebuilt kitchen unit – although even these range in price from several hundred […]

Tiny House Bathrooms

One of the bigger tiny space design challenges tiny house owner-builders face are bathrooms. A typical small residential bathroom will measure 5′ x 9′, or 45 square feet. That’s too much space to use when the house is just 120 square foot tiny house. In a tiny house you’ll find normal flush toilets, RV toilets, […]

Family Tiny House Design

I got an email the other day from a reader named Whitfield. Whitfield has two children, aged 3 months and 1 1/2 years, and was wondering how might a family of four with two young children find a way to live in a tiny house. Here’s part of what Whitfield asked: “Most tiny home designs […]

10 Steps to Creating a Cozy Cabin – by Decorator in a Box

This is a guest post by interior designer Annie Pauza. Growing up in Minnesota I have always dreamed of having a cozy cabin someday. Every summer my family would drive from Minneapolis and visit my Grandmother at a small cabin up north. Square footage was not important to us in order to have fun. We would […]

14′ x 20′ Interior Space Ideas

One of my readers, Ana, found a 14′ by 20′ house shell for sale and posted a photo of it on the Tiny House Design Facebook page. She asked me if I had any ideas about how one might turn this size structure into a comfortable home for two people. Below are some drawings I […]

Resource Furniture

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of everything DIY; in fact I’d describe myself as a do-it-yourselfer to a fault. In other words, I’m one of those people that won’t admit that I sometimes bite-off too much and should have considered calling in a pro in the first place. This video of space […]

Tiny Transformer Apartment in Hong Kong

Architect Gary Chang created this tiny apartment in Hong Kong that literally transforms into many different usable spaces. The total square footage is only 344 square feet but he’s increased the usable space by adding tall moving wall cabinets that change the function of the room depending on which side is exposed. I want to […]
