Tiny Houses

I saw a piece on tiny house on the BBC last week.  I think dwellings like these could be important in developing the soft density that was talked about during Design Regina last fall.

In some ways, technology is able to shrink entertainment products like music, books and movies down to ‘I’ this and Android that devices, most of which are thinner than a paper back novel.  Add to the storage capability the multiple functions these machines provide (TV, Film, Radio and communication) and you start to see where the space-saving can begin. 

I doubt most people will see tiny houses as primary dwellings but as a carriage house, or even mobile home for vacations.   

One name in tiny house building is Tumbleweed, who build all sorts of cute and colourful little places.  Here’s a peppy youtube video from them:
