The opposite of good is bad; the opposite of more is less;
the opposite of claustrophobia is. . .um. . .well. . . .
Fact: there really isn't an English word that is the opposite of claustrophobia.
You see, I don't fear small spaces. I love them!
The Harbinger, above, has almost 300 sq. ft.
Believe it or not, the Epu plan, above, only has 89 sq. ft.
but every inch of the tiny house is used efficiently.
This tiny house is perfectly situated in the woods:
Information on these first four houses
can be found at Tumblewood Houses.
This adorable house actually has a guest
room in addition to the sleeping loft:
I'm thinking, "Ideal guest house!"
Look at these next three photos and imagine
what the exterior of this little house looks like:
Surprised? It's a chic, modern pre-fab that's
just perfect for small and economical living.
This studio apartment features all of the essentials
for convenient city living in one small bundle:
Who says small can't be sophisticated?

Does this tiny Toronto house remind you of the movie Up?!
How clever to build the house on top of the garage.
Brad Kittel of Tiny Texas Houses built this
little gem with 99% salvaged materials:
When the old Saga Cinema in Ljungbert, Sweden, was
being torn down artist Sven Ljungberg (1913-2010)
purchased this part and converted it into a tiny house:
Built as temporary housing for Hurricane Katrina evacuees,
seven of these small houses were purchased by the Seaside
Institute for their academic village on the Gulf of Mexico:
The cottages house students and instructors who travel to
Seaside to participate in courses, seminars and workshops
primarily in the areas of the arts, architecture and health.
This little cottage in Brittany, France, was built
over 100 years ago between two huge boulders.
Bet it'll be there for another 100 years!
Most small houses share an element of efficiency.
Great use of under-the-stairs space, isn't it?
I might not be the World's Worst when it comes to clutter but I
definitely can take a lesson on simple living from today's post.
Maybe Less IS More?!
