I'm Not Living Here

Ask   Hi, my name is Thor. This blog has to do with my interests in the physical spaces we create and inhabit, and alternative ways of living. Home-made houses, off-the-grid homesteading, cabins, permaculture, tiny houses, creative interior design, stuff like that.

i’ve for a long time believed tiny homes are too small if you have any interests besides sleeping and eating simply.

The Majestic Bus has a beautiful wooden floor, painted pine boarding and a well thought-out dining/kitchen area with hand-built units, oak worktops, a gas cooker and a fridge. At the back is a cosy double bed and a wood-burning stove placed on an old flagstone. An L-shaped sofa seat folds into a further double bed. Solar panels on the roof power the lights and a socket to charge phones, laptops etc. A few metres away lies a purpose built wooden bath house, containing a flush toilet and a luxurious roll-top bath with shower above.

Imagine something like this, but raised above the counter, and under it are plants. So it’s like a window box, and the clean water dripping from the dishes waters whatever is planted there. Herbs, moss, succulents, whatever.

I was just playing around with an tiny house idea based on a 8’x4’ utility trailer.  Typically tiny homes on trailers this small have just a bed and very little else going on or are “teardrop” campers with an outdoor kitchen hatch and no standing room inside.  I wanted to see if I could come up with a floor plan with some standing room, a kitchen counter, couch, desk, bed, and some storage space.  One of the design goals is to make it as light as possible.  Being so small, the building materials probably don’t need to be too strong — I’m hoping that the plywood sheathing can provide most of the strength, with the built-in furniture and shelving providing additional support.  For insulation I’m thinking of something thin because space is so tight.

I think of the kitchen and couch as the communal area, so that’s at the entry way.  Then tucked away on the far side are the office and storage area, and the sleeping loft.

This is still really rough. This model doesn’t have precise measurements, and I got a little sloppy with cuts and stuff, and the windows and stuff are totally random.  I was mostly just trying to visualize the space.  Some of the beams such as the corner beams could probably be thinner for the sake of making it lighter, and I’m probably missing some important support some places.  I’ve never built anything like this so I don’t have a terribly good sense for it.

One thing that is still missing is a shed on the front, which would have some angled sides to make the whole thing a little more aerodynamic.

I’m realizing that having the split shed roofs is a somewhat pointless detail.  The house would be more spacious inside if it had the entire roof at the higher level.

Overall I think it’d be a tight space, but I think it’d be doable to live in it.

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.  Please direct them here.
