Sketch Book ideas for a tiny house

This is the first page of my notebook from nearly two years ago. Why build a tiny house??Why am I interested in Tiny Houses?

I talk about why I don’t have a tiny house and instead have a documentary about Tiny Houses in this video.

My ideas were to have:
– A small portable and self built home
– To encourage others to help build it with me
– To focus on the Kitchen/Entertaining aspect of the house (I love to cook and have lounge room dance parties)
– To design the Tiny with a purpose. Making sure each element of the design had multiple functions and was there for a reason.
– Mix modern design and architecture with recycled/found materials
– Take inspiration from found materials and the Australian Bush.
– To end up living much more simply, using less water, gas and electricity.

Why are you interested in Tiny Houses?

– Do you want to build a Tiny House yourself?
– Do you like the idea of a more green/sustainable lifestyle?
– Are you just fascinated with small spaces?

I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
