In Atlanta, The Savannah College of Art and Design has put together three tiny homes (135 square feet each) in, of all places, a parking garage. There is a lot to see and read, along with many more of photojournalist Hyosub Shin's photos to be seen in the article here. I chose these because they are the ones I've come back to again and again.
|Students moving in for a month of tiny home living. I really like this part!|
|The homes are, not surprisingly, wired up and wired in. Let there be light!|
|Not a good bathroom for 'the morning after' but I like the sink and floating toilet.|
|Traditional, industrial and space age work well here. Especially if you like to play with crayons.|
|Remember, these are art projects as well as an expression of tiny homes. Look beyond the frou frou or be inspired by it, there's a lot going on here that's practical.|
|Check out the flooring made of old yard sticks.|
|I'm a kitchen freak and while large is fun, this would work. I have lived with not much more space for a long time and it can be done. I'd love to see what those shiny units contain. I'm jealous in what I imagine them to be.|
|This wall is what made me stop and start really seeing what I was seeing.|
|I love this sink. And the fixtures too.|
|High ceilings DO make a difference|
|I think I'd have a Japanese soaking tub here, though standing would be better when using the shower head as a microphone for some in-shower songfests|
Today is Earth Day! and living well on the Earth is a good thing to think about. Do that. Then do something for the planet you happen to live on. Doing away with plastic water bottles in your life is a good start. Take it away!
Have a touch the terra Tuesday. Do something tinily tremendous.
