tiny house

A family of three have made this tiny space their home

Inside the property has just 160 sq. ft. of floor space.

AT THIS POINT Tiny Homes are almost old hat. 

Around the world people have cottoned on the fact that the structures offer a way to downsize and attain property for a fraction of what a regular house or apartment might set you back.

Taking it to the next level, a family of three have been blogging about their life in their 160 sq. ft. house in Massachusetts.

It has been named Tiny Hall House – with ‘Hall’ being the surname of the family who owns it.

To keep people updated, the family have a Tumblr page where they blog about life in the home.

The property was built for less than $30,000 (€27,000) over a period of 6 months.

The living space inside has a Queen bed on a raised level situated above the kitchen and bathroom space.

The couple’s child sleeps where the downstairs couch is, which folds out to make a bed.

Posting on their blog, the family discuss what people should do if they are thinking of downsizing.

On this they say, After you have decided on your general house plans, or even better before, I encourage you to narrow down your household and personal items before you even start your building or framing etc…

…there are so many things you can do in your framing and in your design that will really make an enormous difference in the livability of your tiny house.
