This tiny house is an adorable echo of the larger house that it sits behind and is a perfect mini-me version of it. Like many of the cottages in Berkeley it’s a one-floor living space but a former attic or storage area has been converted to a sleeping loft.
Nestled in a gorgeous greenery-filled neighborhood of the city is the lovely which reflects the laid-back yet comfy community with style and understated class. Designed by Krista Watterworth Design Studio the single-family residence has an unmistakable air of calming cheerfulness.
Adaptive reuse of old structures not only saves both time and precious resources it often results in stunning new homes that have an entirely new style of their own. Located in a scenic and historic village of Switzerland this fabulous stone house was recently renovated by Wespi de Meuron Romeo Architects and showcases a style that brings together the classic and the contemporary.
A cozy bedroom with a platform bed that brings along with it an air of minimalism a black and white bathroom and an ergonomic home office complete the lovely home. The landscape around the house becomes a part of the interior thanks to the clever use of windows and outdoor seating spaces that extend the living area.
I was pretty surprised by how much fun I had living off-grid in a yurt on the Big Island of Hawaii—it was much easier than I had expected and also very freeing. Living off-grid doesn’t mean doing without it just means doing things differently (and with a much lower impact). You can have lights at night if you want them and even WiFi though they will be powered by solar panels and you will only have so much energy to use. When it’s done lights out.
