    Very nice. I am a big fan of tiny spaces.

  • Very well designed. Probably among the smallest reasonable living spaces.

    very sweet
    it is interesting how all our most creative work comes out of dealing with constraints and ideally finding the nugget that we wouldn’t have without the constraint

    What a shame your design is illegal under Durham’s UDO code, which requires a dwelling unit to be in excess of 400sf. Just one of the many ways the planning department prevents the growth of affordable housing in Durham.

  • Me too!

  • Thanks!

  • So true. constraints are good.

  • Very true. The UDO is not very flexible for tiny units. Although, most jurisdiction have similar restrictions. I’ve seen a lot of folks get around that by putting the unit on wheels so they are technically a mobile home instead of a fixed residence to get around that problem. In this case it’s part of an overall house (not technically a separate for rent space). It’s basically a man-cave. A man cave of awesomeness.

    When we lived in Scotland we purchased a flat at 475 s.f.. It was really rather commodious for me, my wife and small son. We could have lopped off a clean 150 s.f. without issue. Clever design and an understanding that small-space living is actually quite a satisfying affair – winning combination. Well done.

    I am converting a 10 x 12 ft. shed into a backyard retreat/guest house. Wish I had your help!
