Mis·cel·la·ne·a, From Around the Web….

The following are inspirational pieces found ’round the web. The first is an oldie, (circa 2008), but has some good basic comments about downsizing. The space is actually cavernous compared to true tinies, (over 300 sq ft), and the length of the craft is probably longer than my house- 39ft!

The second is a complete design inspiration. Most of the tiny designs use walls to divide spaces and also house stuff. This house has the opposite approach. This would be awesome for a super tiny suitable for more frequent towing. I thought that the bathroom issue could also be simply solved with the sliding doors one wall concealing the items lined up, which I have been playing with in my mind.
