MINIMOD Pre-fab and stylish small housing. Posted bytiny house listings February 16, 2014 in Posted in tiny-house 12 Pages: 1 2
how much for a house like this, is it 20ft or 40 ft??
It’s beautiful, but I don’t think I’d take a shower in this setup unless only the cows were my neighbors!
I’m ALL for Minimalism but then there’s minimalism that makes no sense. Although I love this design, I can’t understand how it can be used for more than an over-night stay.
Having visited the architects website, I read their mission statement and viewed more photos. But, it still begs the question: Where the HECK do you keep clothing?????? You can’t even disrobe at night, to retire into that cozy bed, and find a single hook to hang the clothes off of your back upon.
Then there’s this conumdrum: dining room table for FOUR but seating in the lounge for ONE? And outdoor seating for ONE? And with a kitchen that tiny, can you even make enough food for FOUR people unless it’s soup or stir-fry?
Again, love the concept of this place but it’s certainly not set up for more than an overnight stay for TWO people at best, and that’s assuming you drag the chair from the deck inside so the two of you can sit next to each other.
Puzzling design, indeed.
Love modern design but more privacy and storage needed?
well……..if there’s not enough happening on the lake to keep your eyes occupied then maybe you could get someone to take a shower. Forget shyness:)
Love it. Very modern and forward thinking design. This would work fantastically well on our property, surrounded by trees and totally private. Nothing like opening up the shower to the great outdoors and enjoying a little sunshine and fresh air!
Clothes could store in drawers under the bed.
The ‘shipping container’ style home is popular in parts of Hawaii where you can buy a 20′ container for sometimes as little as $1000.
So many questions… People have already questioned clothing storage, but what came to my mind was cleaning. One of the things that makes this look so attractive is that it’s absolutely clean. But how do you keep it that way? And where do you store the equipment and supplies to keep it clean? Broom, mop, rags, bucket, maybe a vacuum? All that glass is going to get dirty in a hurry, and with the unpaved world right outside your door, dirt is going to find its way onto your floor very quickly.
In short, we’d like to see how “everyday living” works into a small unit like this.
