Still, I am in desperate need of both design inspiration and getting out of the house in a way that will break up my winter induced melancholy. As we know we have some big ticket structural fixes that need to be done first, I'd be gleaming for the purely cosmetic idea to get inspired. I also am fascinated with the whole tiny home movement and there will be five different version on display. Tiny homes are more than just a very downsized house, or a little house like my first 650 square foot number. These are usually moveable, fully functional houses often taking up less than a couple hundred square feet of space.
I admit I truly don't understand the difference between a tiny house and a small camper trailer, other than the house looks more like a house and seem to be a little more structured. Are these just a hipster way of rejecting societal norms, but in a way that is way cooler than squatting in an old pop-up trailer tent? If I furthered explored extreme downsizing in retirement, would living in a tiny house as opposed to a little efficiency or studio condo be a good option? Seeing these five models in person might be worth a ticket for me at least.
I've watched YouTube videos about tiny space living, and it is good fun for me to imagine living in such restricted spaces. If I am able to retire where and how I want, this is good exercise in deciding mentally what makes the cut to keep and which of my possessions would need to be sold, given away, or discarded. I've also decided two things are nonnegotiable; a full kitchen for cooking and baking, and a bath within the home that minimally had a shower. Here's one of my favorites-if I could get over the graffiti doorway and scary staircase.Trading space for a whole city like Barcelona for my back yard? Tempting.
