Howie’s Tiny House

This tiny house is simply a rectangle, but it shows what can be done with such a simple geometric structure. The fortunate thing about a simple rectangle is that it is the least expensive. As for the lack of an elevated support, I live in a desert environment and tend to think in those terms. Here, many houses are built on slabs without any thought to a basement, or an attic for that matter. Also, a flat roof has no possibility of collapse due to snow. In future, designs may include at least shed roofs, with the occasional gabled roof along the lines of American Mid-Century Modern.

A final look with the roof off.

Although this house looks ample in size, the indoor square footage is only 239. The outdoors is used as a major extension to the roominess of the overall design. In fact, in such a house, in the right environment, the temptation would be to spend considerable hours outside.

This Site Is For Those Of Us That Go Modern All The Way

I’ve always thought that shabby-chic is basically shabby with no chic, that rustic is unfinished, and country is an outhouse. Only modern and preferably ultra-modern here.

This site will present various posts about actual modern tiny homes, but will also include designs and ideas. Besides enjoying designing furniture, I enjoy designing tiny houses. I used to use the old architectural method of media on paper. However, these days digital methods occupy a lot of my time.

At any rate, nothing is formal here and will be presented as time and inclination dictates. As a side note, I generally give designs names of individuals as a personable way of remembering them.

I keep getting requests for my tiny house designs. Since architecture is art, and even though the subject of tiny houses is not the primary purpose of this website, the houses I design are always modern with a wink at Mid Century Modern. Even so, modern tiny houses are groovy!

Much like Andrea’s Tiny House, this house is based on the square, in this case two overlapping squares. (Again, I live in a desert environment where houses are built on slabs, so I haven’t included a raised foundation.) Aesthetically, as with Andrea’s, circular windows contrasts with the rectilinear forms. To follow the circular windows around the structure, the door repeats this motif. The following images are day views.

Admittedly, the kitchen is rather tight and would benefit from the exterior wall in the direction of the front being pushed out a couple of feet. However, this design would still work if the appliances and cabinets were on a smaller scale. This house is around 300 square feet and I will append a floor plan as soon as available. As a hint to orientation, follow the windows. The house is made of two squares where the corners of the squares overlap and form a square that makes the bathroom. One goes through a door in the living area into the bathroom and then another door that leads to the laundry/dining/kitchen area.

I have other very modern designs and will post those at regular intervals.
