small space

I live in a 240 sq ft home, on Galiano Island off the coast of Southern British Columbia.

The Tiny House was built in 2014, and I moved into it, December of that year. The space is 24 ft long by 10 ft wide, and sits on a heavy-duty flat deck trailer designed to carry 15,000 lbs.

The house was designed all on one level to accommodate my health issues, and mobility restrictions, but also with the idea of aging-in-place for able-bodied occupants, whom will also appreciate the one-level, open, and spacious design

The layout includes a 10 x 10 ft living room, off which opens the front door, with a detachable porch. The living room opens into a 3.5 x 6 ft Kitchen, and 4 x 6 ft Bathroom with hot water on demand, composting toilet, and bath/shower. The bathroom and kitchen are separated by 2.5 x 6 ft hallway, which leads into the 8 x 10 ft bedroom.

To maximize on energy efficiency, all but one of the opening windows are on the South wall, with graduated features windows on both the two end walls, to take advantage of as much natural light as possible.

It’s a work in progress, as health and life kinda got in the way, but living here continues to be a deeply rewarding, life-enriching, experience.
