multi-use paper in a tiny house

Recently we read about a couple who downsized from their 2,100 craftsman home to a legal sized sheet of paper. Who says living in a couple square feet isn’t possible now?

See how many things you can do in a tiny space, including eating, working and sleeping, by going vertical. (The New Yorker)

When The New Yorker recently satirized downsizing opportunities, it focused on the extreme goals of living well and living tiny. The couple they described have a perfect place:

“There’s a galley kitchen; a tiled, gravity-fed shower; two small closets; built-in bookshelves; and a sleeping loft. By moving a small wall, a tiny library does quintuple duty as a conservatory, a dark room, a wine cellar, and a lap pool.”

Kudos to The New Yorker, a thought leader that deemed tiny houses worthy of commentary. After all, smaller places have been getting plenty of press these days. And small spaces are nothing new for NYC apartment dwellers, right?

It’s too bad no one has built a lap pool yet. Though we do know someone who is installing a whirlpool as part of a medical tiny house, for real!
