Mini Home

This sustainable hybrid timber-frame Mini Home combines cozy spaces with an expansive character. The interiors weave into the surrounding garden, and the home celebrates the cycle of seasons. The front porch transitions gracefully via a slate-floor entryway into the central space where the living, dining, and cooking areas overlap and interact.

A small garden home in Eugene, Oregon. Designed by Nir Pearlson. More photos here.

      This one isn’t exactly tiny. 800 square feet of floor space.

        Yeah, if I can live in a small one-bedroom apartment for years and think it’s fairly spacious, this isn’t tiny. It’s not exactly one of those boxcar microhomes either.

    I’d love to see the bathroom – are there any photos you can post?
    I’d also like to know the cost to build – not necessarily to finish it out – but the base price. It’s a very stunning structure!

    This is the perfect size. Anything smaller isn’t practical for my psychological need to occasionally escape my spouse.

    I’m absolutely curious if this property is for sale and where? I’ve looked on the archetechs website, and it seems you need to take that “contact us” step to get any numbers or locations. Some of us just want to kknnooowww. 🙂

    800 is prefect! Where do I buy it?

    So, 800 sq. ft. is not my definition of tiny, this home is also considered affordable, wonder how that is being defined. Anyone know. Very nice though and while I only want a cabin of 400 sq. ft. max, many of the ideas are applicable–vaulted ceiling, open space, lots of large windows, large deck, light interior, furniture and space that is double duty. Thanks for the share, would love to see more pictures.

    Cable connection kits are primarily utilized to change
    data from through the portable computers’s program.
    The big question to question is when it is right
    for the particular needs, and budget. 500 dollar gaming laptop Alienware products have a very unique check out them, which is
    further enhanced because of the Alien – FX lighting system which may be adjusted by
    the person.

    So, so what can I say in regards to laptop that I couldn’t even hold
    within my hands while I was demoing at a friend.
    It is believed which the 3 red light errors are caused caused by the system overheating.
