Interior Intentions

Ok, I have spent a lot of time looking at tiny houses from the outside and paying attention to a little of the inside if it is eye-catching. But when going tiny, you really have to make the most of space. That doesn’t have to mean going with that hideous two-burner camping stove though.

Let’s take a look at some handy space-saving ideas for your tiny home, and if you have any great ideas or photos of your own, pass them along to me in an email or on Facebook.

This is a 2-burner stove top, oven and dishwasher.

This is just awesome, if you can live with a tiny fridge.

Pretty good sleeping up to 4 people in about a 10′ square space…if you like the doctor’s office look.

Stay in a Tiny House Instead of a Hotel!

Like pretty much most other families, we have relatives that live all over the place, and with three kids and a grand-daughter on-board, it’s hard to stay with relatives sometimes. So naturally we grab a hotel. The kids used to love it because when they were little they would go swimming in the hotel pool. Now the kids are teenagers, so they don’t care so much about swimming. Plus, we got to thinking, why spend easily over $100 on a hotel when we check in at 4pm and check out at 11am? That’s not even 24 hours!

Well now there are new, and more economical, and fun options popping up. A startup called Gateway, builds, and rents tiny cabins for your getaway in the woods. Really, a great idea, and for around the same cost as a hotel, you can not only enjoy the silence, but you have a kitchenette to cook up some grub, and who can beat being in the outdoors with nature all around?

Modulars Anyone?

I recently came across a post about MorHaus. MorHaus is the brain-child of an architect based out of Charlotte, North Carolina. They are pre-fab modular structures that can be easily assembled in a single day with a 2-person crew.

The sizes of their units range in size, from 8’x12′ to 12’x16′ with the option of joining units with a covered porch between if you need more space.

I have included a few pictures, but here is some additional places you can look at MorHaus.
