    Nice use of a really small urban lot. industrial is not my style but I can appreciate its appeal to many. What I would like to know is how they heat this high-ceilinged home during Toronto’s cold winters.

  • kevin June 3, 2016, 9:10 am

    i like the idea, I just don’t think they used the space as well as they could have. at least from all the emptiness I can see.

  • Meg June 3, 2016, 9:45 am

    Loving the chair that turns into a twin bed! Not a fan of industrial but very cool that it was built with reclaimed materials.

  • alice h June 3, 2016, 1:30 pm

    Not really a fan of industrial style or excessive amounts of open vertical space but given the lot size this is pretty impressive.

  • Carol Perry June 3, 2016, 2:01 pm

    Your home fits perfectly between your neighbor’s homes. It looks like you added value to the neighborhood. Just love your windows! The way you have it set up it looks really nice. I didn’t see any source of heat How do you heat your beautiful home? Carol???

    Five stars for the visual! I appreciate the open stairs and upper-story ‘half-walls’. These sight-lines give a free feel to a tiny space.

    Oops! As a retired restaurant owner, I need a lot more counters for food prep, clear space on both sides of the sink, and I would separate the cooking area from the fridge.

  • Brandi June 3, 2016, 9:51 pm

    Not a good use of space…….I really couldn’t find anything to say positive about this one. Thank you Alex for showing us all kinds of different kinds of tiny homes???? LOL I guess that is as good as I can make it.

  • Rue June 3, 2016, 10:04 pm

    Like the others, I’m not a fan of the whole spartan-industrial thing, but it’s impressive how much space the builder wrangled out of that little bitty lot.

    I think with different furniture in a better arrangement, this house could be quite nice.

  • Tim June 4, 2016, 10:03 am

    So is it a home or an office space? Also, I’m amazed it was up to code to build that close to other homes.

  • Dan June 4, 2016, 1:36 pm

    As a Toronto home owner who has learned the hard way – that sloped roof would cause the neighbour (little blue house) a very wet basement. There seems to be no room in the small space between blue house and new grey house for blue house to fix the wet basement problem. City of Toronto Building Department goofed there.

    • Eric August 19, 2018, 5:38 pm

      But… why would it cause a problem. On the little blue house side the roof has guttering… therefore shedding rainwater from the roof to the drainage area.

      Given your concern, how come there isn’t any regarding snow… that is there in abundance? That would cause, according to your reasoning, wet basement problems when it melts.

  • Carolyn Cianciotto June 4, 2016, 9:39 pm

    Ugly!!!

  • Denise June 5, 2016, 8:23 am

    I love the open feel of this one and the stone floor gives added floor insulation and a feel of warmth. If this has the kind of insulation that Toronto needs and it has floor radiant heat, I imagine it is extremely cozy. The really nice thing is it feels big in a small space with different levels and nooks to do a different task, even if it is just curling up with a good book on that orange chair bed.

  • Kurt June 9, 2016, 1:55 pm

    Not for me…too close to other people.

  • Dominick August 19, 2018, 10:06 am

    I found this to be absolutely hideous, cold, barren,.with all the empty useless space to be heated,what a waste of engery.

  • Alexa Saunders August 19, 2018, 12:52 pm

    I like this place. Although I would decorate a litle differently, there are several new ideas that I find really interesting. Thanks for expanding our options!

  • Hudson August 19, 2018, 3:30 pm

    I am very surprised anyone was allowed to build on that lot (can firemen reach the back through the side yards with hoses and equipment? ) Think you would have made enemies of your neighbors on both sides. The interior is too sparse for my taste but it is well done for the industrial look.

  • Cyndi Raper August 20, 2018, 8:04 am

    I have always been a huge fan of the industrial look and think that without a doubt of the thousands of tiny house photos I have looked at, this is by far my favorite. If I had $150,000 in the bank I’d offer it to you for a quick sale. I love this place you did a fantastic job!!

  • Dawn October 24, 2018, 12:30 pm

    I like the movable unit next to sink. By moving a work area a foot or even a few inches could make it more workable for two…maybe even three? Love, love, love the open feel of the ceiling height. As for the starkness, this person may not have the need for much storage and/or prefers a clean uncluttered living space, but for someone that does, this home certainly provides for that option. Looks like cement floors….and a drain in the bathroom floor….so practical. Nicely done.
