This is the drawer house created by Japanese architects Nendo in Tokyo, Japan.

It’s a multi-functional residential home that transforms according to what you’re doing whether it’s cooking, sleeping, entertaining, dining, bathing, or studying.

Everything pulls out of one wall so that just like a drawer, you can pull out and put away whatever you need. It’s a versatile way to deal with the limited amount of space available in places like Tokyo. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

This 600 Sq. Ft. Cottage on Farm in Mexico is a guest post by Michael Mckenna – share yours!

Tiny houses in Mexico…why Mexico? Why not build in a climate that is sunny most of the year and a pleasant 80 degrees with little humidity.

So pleasant that neither heat nor air conditioning are required. The utility costs are minimal here. The property taxes are $100 per year. Sound good?

At Simple Choice Farm you can either rent a 600 sq. ft. cottage for $550 US per month including utilities.  Or buy a 600 sq. ft. cottage for $80,000 US that includes the land.

Located in the mountains of central Mexico, the property has a pool, hot tub, huge circular gardens with vegetables for the picking. Presently I have 2 homes for sale and I’m building 4 more rental units.

Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

This tiny house on wheels for sale is a guest post by Michael & Grace – share yours here!

This unique tiny portable studio was built as an additional bedroom but it can be used as an office, guest room, meditation nook, massage studio, vacation rental, or personal living space. It’s perfect for someone who wants privacy or their own inspirational space but doesn’t want the hassle of obtaining a permit to build. It was built by an incredibly gifted craftsman. Materials were carefully hand picked. We used it on our farm as our bedroom. It was nestled alongside the river during summer. We ran an extension cord from our barn for electricity. It was a wonderful relaxing retreat. Many people refer to our small space as a “sanctuary.” It’s a beauty.

This 8×16 handcrafted portable studio (120 square feet) sits sturdy on a double axle flatbed trailer made for us by Leonard. Non toxic products were selected and used for the inside from start to finish. We used all local wood. Poplar floors, handcrafted maple door with stain glass, non toxic insulation, american clay plaster walls (the plastered walls gives the studio a warm feeling), ceiling fan, cathedral ceilings, small loft for storage, passive solar energy efficient “Serious” Windows, wall electric heater, beautiful lighting features and excellent air flow with a window of each wall. Easy to hook up anywhere 110/120.

This DIY pallet house is a guest post by Priscilla Crighton – share yours!

This is a pallet house built by engineering student, Angus Hughes. The house is located on his family property on the outskirts of Rockhampton and is just about water proof. 

There’s no running water but electricity is available courtesy of a durable power cord running from the family shed.

“The size of the pallets dictated the size of the house which is three pallets high, three pallets wide and five pallets long,” Angus said. “The exterior and interior walls are made from pallets while the floor has been created from packing timber which was donated by a local glazing business.”

The second year civil engineering student, who is currently studying at Central Queensland University, recently moved in a few modern conveniences – fridge, TV and barbecue – along with beds and other furniture made by his father, making it the perfect student pad. Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!

This is a guest post by Kelly Patton – share yours!

I started the life of a tiny dweller when I moved to the country in Northern California. I landed at a sweet community spot where other artists and farmers lived, and was thrilled at the idea of having my own space, no matter how tiny. It was common to find people living alternatively and exploring a range of creative and inexpensive spaces.

Many of these people were artists, and other creative types living comfortably in trailers, buses, cabins, attics, warehouses and barns. Over the course of 1 year I moved around the land from a veggie powered school bus, to a studio with an attic loft in a warehouse, and a small 8’x8′ shack. There was a community kitchen and bathroom available on the land, and the people shared these amenities. It was a very sweet and community interactive situation.

That experience gave me the notion that I could live with less furniture, and so I found ways to make my things more mobile in case I wanted to move my studio at any given opportunity. I learned more about what I could do without, and more about my basic needs in daily life.

As an artist, I tend to collect lots of little fascinating relics and natural objects as reference for my drawings. These objects don’t move everywhere with me, but have proven to be useful as they reflect the environment around me and appear in my paintings. In a special way, they are preserved in the artwork, so there is an ongoing acknowledgement that all stuff is replaceable and this helps me curb my long term hoarding. Please enjoy, learn more and re-share below. Thank you!
