    Tiny House Lover



    Published on Nov 17, 2017
    This home from Peru is absolutely amazing. Impressing with its complexity and fine care for detail, the Casa Chontay will become your favorite shortly. Designed by Marina Vella Arquitectos, the residence is not only a beautiful but also a sustainable building. The use of natural materials is present throughout the two independent volumes. One other thing is the fact that they’re both encircled by vegetation, making a logical connection with the surrounding natural environment. All in all, Casa Chontay is a superb build with nice scenery in which to blend. Just relax by looking at the photos provided here. They will surely do all the convincing.

    A Beautiful Garden Home, Must See Immediately in the United States | Tiny House Ideas
    Tiny House Lover



    Published on Nov 16, 2017
    Wisconsin welcomes another impressively beautiful passive home. This type of house is not new to the world and the United States. But with its 970 square feet and the fact it consumes less energy than a hair dryer, it definitely stands out! Proud owner Sonya Newenhouse says she hardly felt the harsh winter. With an average of 68 – 86 degrees Fahrenheit inside during the freezing Wisconsin months, we would totally agree! And remember: meanwhile it was up to 90 percent more efficient than the standard home. Besides the efficient energy use, you have bright colors mixed together with modern furniture to inspire you in every moment of the day. Take a virtual tour to experience what it would look like to live in such a beautiful example of modern architecture.

    Published on Aug 28, 2017
    This is an inside look of a typical Japanese family's house in Tokyo Japan. This is a very common home in Tokyo. Unlike many people who rent Tokyo Apartments, this is a rented Tokyo House. The design of the Tokyo Home is very similar to other Japan homes except maybe the basement and attic.

    Portable Hotel Room by Contained
    From Australian-based design firm, Contained, is this 20-foot shipping container repurposed into a portable hotel room. The container is easy to ship nearly anywhere in the world and can quickly open into an individual hotel room.

    The 20-foot container has a slide-out queen size bedroom, a living room with herringbone flooring, and a dark color palette. With its folding glass wall and large windows, the room has plenty of natural light to offset the darker colors.

    A small kitchenette and bathroom with subway tile shower and toilet provide similar amenities to a traditional hotel room.

    Contained converts shipping containers into luxury boutique accommodations, contemporary offices, and entertainment units including bars, restaurants, and boutiques. For more information on what they can design, visit their website.

    Amplified Tiny House has Main House is 400 Square Feet and 160 Square Foot Mobile Recording Studio
    Tiny House Lover



    Published on Nov 26, 2017
    Amplified Tiny House
    Built for violinist Asha Mevlana of The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the Amplified Tiny House is a musician’s dream tiny house. The main house is 400-square-feet and built on a foundation, while the 160-square-foot mobile recording studio was built on a tiny house trailer. The studio is sound proof, has outdoor waterproof speakers, and was built to look like a giant amp! The huge composite deck creates the perfect performance space for Asha and local bands in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

    The Amplified Tiny House was featured on Season 4, Episode 9 of Tiny House Nation and was a collaborative build between the THN team and Vickery Construction.

    The exterior blends Brazilian Abaco hardwood and black corrugated metal siding, giving it a sleek, modern finish. Large glass garage doors on the main house and studio open the spaces onto the large deck.

    Inside the tiny house is a large kitchen with white shaker style cabinets, black silestone counters, farmhouse sink, four burner range, white subway tile backsplash, and a dishwasher. The countertop extends across the front wall, providing a bar area that seats four people in front of windows.

    One of Zack Giffin’s surprises was building a pot rack with a gear system made from bicycle parts, which raises and lowers the rack. He also made a chest that opens to reveal an editing studio with dual monitors.

    For more information about the Amplified Tiny House, you can visit Asha Mevlana’s website.

    The original tiny house was designed by Brian Crabb at VIVA Collectiv and photography credits go to Don Shreve.

    Notch House: Victorian Terraced House Notched and Extended | Small House Design
    Ideas
    Tiny House Lover



    Published on Nov 21, 2017
    The Victorian semi-detached terraced house has been notched out and extended to the rear to create a generous kitchen, dining and living space with carefully placed glazed voids to link the interior with elements of the garden. The extension has been expressed as a lightweight pavilion extruded out from the main house, linking heavier exposed masonry elements and extending into the garden as a canopy overhanging the patio

    A pocket planter on the south facing side elevation is the first point of focus from the entrance hall; as you work your way through the house the view is opened up to the garden to the rear through large slimline sliding doors. The two storey rear closet wing has been carved away on the ground floor leaving a pair of brick columns to frame the dining room and pocket courtyard garden.

    A concrete floor extends from inside to form an external patio area whilst light oak joinery to the kitchen and walls adds warmth and complements the exposed brickwork.

    Paris home-within-home: metal core adds space to modern loft
    Kirsten Dirksen



    Published on Dec 3, 2017
    To preserve the open, industrial feel of a 1920s industrial loft in Paris' 11th arrondissement, architect Alex Delaunay inserted a pre-fab island into the center. The golden aluminium-clad home-within-a-home adds bedrooms and a bathroom without the need for adding walls to the stripped-down, raw concrete space.

    Twelve of the 40 tall aluminum panels are operable shutters or doors mounted on metal frames and rails allowing for natural light to enter the bedroom and bathroom filtered through slats in the polycarbonate panels.

    A Trip to The Bronx, New York City
    Myblockny



    Published on Dec 6, 2017
    I get daily requests from viewers to visit the Bronx.
    In this video I visited Mott Haven, a neighborhood in the Bronx that is super close to Manhattan.
    Many parts of the Bronx has flourished over the past few years due to its low property prices, and Mott Haven has been particularly attractive for its fantastic location.
    I wanted to show more parts of the Bronx in this video, but sadly it was raining a lot and by 4pm the sun disappeared.
    More visits to the Bronx are coming soon.

    Young Woman's Off-Grid Green Built Tiny House Designed For a Sustainable Future
    Living Big In A Tiny House



    Published on Dec 8, 2017
    This beautiful tiny house is constructed with a whole lot of heart and some wonderful sustainable materials. When Isabelle Nagel-Brice decided to build a tiny home for herself, she realised that for the cost of two years rent in Colorado she would be able to pay for the materials to build her own tiny home on wheels.

    Become a Living Big Patron: https://www.patreon.com/livingbig

    The result of her efforts is an incredible green-built tiny home which has been constructed entirely of eco-friendly materials which can all be recycled or will bio degrade at the end of the buildings life. The home is designed to be off-the-grid, with solar panels soon to be added to her set-up and is packed full of reclaimed and healthy materials.
