Tiny Free House Update

I’m starting to really cut up pallets and build wall panels today, very exciting. Last night I stayed up late and made some important changes to the floor plan of my tiny free house. I moved the door to the side, moved the pitch horizontally, and pretty much changed the whole thing so I could fit two beds and create more open space. The ceiling will also be a bit taller adding to the feeling of more space on the inside. Later tonight I’ll post photos on my progress at TinyFreeHouse.com.

    Yes ventilation and light are the obvious answers. But think harder- do you want to deal with water from shower/visibility issues that come with a window. Might you be better served with a vent?

    In such a small space ever decision must be considered carefully, and most spaces/items must serve at least a dual purpose. Like your bench/bed & foldout desk. Maybe chair/stepladder to loft?

    Excellent points and suggestions EJ. Thanks. I will definitely consider them as I draw the next iteration.

    I kind of like the idea of just a window and not a vent for two reasons, one is a window opens the smallest enclosed space up just a bit…even though it’s a bathroom and two it’s not something that requires any power source to vent out. You just open it. But I don’t think a large window really works either. I wouldn’t want to sit on a toilet next to a full length window. Not enough privacy.

    I’m trying to picture a chair/ladder for the loft and haven’t wrapped my brain around that yet EJ but great idea! I can definitely see a step being a chair for Katie easily, but my backside would need a little wider step if you know what I mean. 🙂

    Just my two cents.
