What would be really cool is if instead of solid cabinitry they had rollable storage under the island on the kitchen side so that you could remove and replace it with foldable bar stools when entertaining.
    I was thinking along the same lines actually! The kitchen is much bigger than what would fit in a tiny house, but again the idea of having an island and a free layout with a kitchen lining the wall is absolutely necessary for having a 'full sized' kitchen in a small home.

    Alas I did not think to photograph their bathroom.

    This one is sort of like it though. Just imagine the sink is in the place of the horizontal metal bar on the right, so that the flexible metal tube for the shower head is attached to the sink instead of coming out of the wall.

    The drain would just be in the tile floor under the sink.

    Congrats in your tiny house progress. I also wanted to build but I stumbled upon a tiny home on 5 acres in the most unlikely place. It truly is a very pretty home, just too small for most people. Just telling you this to let you know that sometimes our dreams spring up out of nowhere when we're not looking for them. Initially I was going to save another year for the build. But since finding this place which is both council and mortgage approved I'm just going for it now. It seems my dream found me sooner than I bargained on.

    I originally had dreams of country chic, but this cedar clad 80's home looks very japanese in style so I'm going minimalist zen instead to be sympathetic to the home. Out goes the shower, in goes an ofuro....

    Best wishes on your journey....

    Thanks for sharing this! It's cool hearing other people's stories about finding homes they love. Really awesome that you found your dream I'm hoping we can break some ground into ours very soon... and ofuros are really great! I'm a huge fan of the concept.

    I'm definitely putting a sink in my bedroom area. Definitely.

    I'm a little excited about building my house lately for no reason at all lately. I think the fact we've found some nice properties has helped my excitement.

    Also for the sake of bungy-jumping into one of your threads but not reading the whole thing ... I just wanted to share this facebook page which has been a frequent source of inspiration & enjoyment:

    https://www.facebook.com/buildnaturally

    This lady is local to where I live, she's an architect who concentrates on "natural" building systems, styles and techniques. She studied down in Austin though. But her insight into the craft of natural building & "small living" is amazing in large part due to the fact that she has experience & a whole career built around it
    (I always joke to my wife, "more architectural porn by Sigi!")

    ^ Amazing stuff! If I lived in a more arid environment I'd be doing a straw bale house for sure--such an easy construction model.

    I was thinking today, while looking at an old set of bunk beds, it wouldn't be that hard to just put like.. two old wooden bunk beds together, back to back, put some waterproof plastic and slats on the top parts, weather treat it, and have a small 'patio' and place to sit and lay on on the top. I don't know why that has to do with my tiny house, though. Hah!

    The one thing I keep thinking back to is that rectangular structure by Tuff Shed I keep seeing out near my house. I think taller walls, but still two stories, and it would be a perfect tiny house. Kitchen, bathroom, and living room downstairs, and a bathroom, closet, and study desk upstairs. I can have all the plumbing up against one wall, radiant floors would keep the house pretty warm on its own right, and taller walls would mean more storage and more room to put what I really want more than anything else--my giant world map big enough to post small pictures and pins and strings of the places I've been. I was inspired by this scene:



    I love that map so much--and I think it would be really cool to have my own, with strings pointing to my favorite pictures of locations, and stuff written on it everywhere, and stickers and tickets scattered about the borders.
