Tiny House Kitchen Designs

Exif_JPEG_PICTURE

Pinterest is a great tool for creating photo collections. I’ve made some topic specific boards for things like bedrooms, bathrooms, and interiors. When noodling through future design ideas it’s nice to be able to see what other people have done. You can find all my Tiny House Design boards on Pinterest.

If you’d like to play with your own floor plan layout ideas give my free Print & Cut Worksheet a try. You just print it out with your own printer or have it printed at Kinkos on cardstock like I did. Then cut out the shapes and play with floor plan ideas.

The Year of Mud: Building a Cob House by Brian “Ziggy” Liloia

Brian “Ziggy” Liloia just finished a book documenting the process of building his tiny cob house at the Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage. The book is titled The Year of Mud: Building a Cob House.

Ziggy began construction in April of 2008 and moved in on July 11, 2009, but the story didn’t end there. He quickly learned what worked and didn’t work with his original design and made changes to make the home more comfortable. For example a novel bed design heated by a rocket stove didn’t work out as expected – so Ziggy got out his pickaxe and shovel and replaced it with a tiny wood stove before the winter snows came.

The lessons folks like this learn through their explorations can help us all make better choices for ourselves. I’m really greatful to those that share their experiences through blogging and who take the time to put it in print.

Work Exchange Opportunity at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage

Ziggy (Brian Liloia) let me know about an upcoming work exchange opportunity coming this summer at the Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage. Ziggy and a few others are building a 350 square foot cooperative kitchen.

It will be built with a roundwood timber frame structure and straw bale and cob walls. Those who partake in this project should get some good first hand experience with several truly sustainable building techniques while being fully immersed in life at Dancing Rabbit. Thanks again for the tip Ziggy!
