      Where can I find the plans for this home? This one another I saw on here would be perfect for my home.

    Fantastic! This is so beautiful. The design, use of space functionally and aesthetically are remarkable. Bravo to you!

    I don’t believe the house is for sale. This is mostly a website for people to post photos of their own tiny houses for others to swoon over. :)

    Looks delightful! What is the asking price?

    Most condominium units in the Philippines can be considered are tiny homes. The average 1 bedroom unit is around 30sqm and some would even find a way to make it 2 bedrooms. =D
    It’s really a challenge to simplify and de-cluter one’s life.

    I don’t think it’s for sale. This isn’t the ‘tiny homes for sale’ site, it’s the ‘swoon’ site; :)

    Beautiful!

    This is a very nice floorplan and very realistic for a ‘small” house”. The pictures are obviously staged though as it does not appear to be used on a regular basis.

    Charming and cozy! Such a beautiful design of the architectural work and the interior furnishing.

    I don’t think this is big enough for a family, but I’d move myself and my partner in at the drop of a hat! Beautifully done.

    I am currently designing a small guest/multi-gen house to add to my property and love this layout. Can you share a plan view with approx dimensions?

  • Reply 최근 February 7, 2014 at 1:56 am

    Very very nice …
    This island is also home to make sure I’ll see.

    I definitely like the floor plan and see some areas that can be improved such as putting drawers under the couches for more storage and changing out the vessel sink for a sink with storage underneath for at least cleaning supplies but otherwise very beautiful…I think everyone is more interested in how much it cost to build not how much to buy and I’m also interested as well…great job!

    Love, love, love!

    I believe the idea behind “tiny houses” is more than square feet but also a way of living. This house is darling. I can definitely see ways of making it smaller and better use of some space, but for a family of four as a permanent residence it is ideal. One day those “little” ones will be “big” teenagers and essentially 4 adults in that space. Very nice.

    This humble house is why I first became a subscriber to TINY HOUSE SWOON. I think it’s perfection. I could live in it quite happily as is, but might contrast its near shaker simplicity with a few really key pieces of modernist art, an odd upholstered piece or two and more interesting lighting to accent its’ ample sumptuousness. Somehow I am going to find a way to build a similar home with effortless grace, a practical layout and ample ease that will be “off grid” and naturally sustainable with the lowest carbon footprint I could leave. Whether shipping containers, salvaged woods and materials, or just hay and mud … I’M READY! A different “rat race” of sorts lol . Thank You T.H.S. !!!

    Love this house! Are the plans available?

    This house is lovely. Agree completely with Melissa’s comments. I am curious about the understructure of the “green” roof. Thanks.
