Well-crafted 28' #tinyhouse is a beautiful modern home. The tinyhouse movement is growing.

As the tiny house movement seems to be gaining quite a bit of ground in the United States, north of the border in Canada, things seem to be picking up as well. Besides its first tiny house festival a couple of years back, we're now seeing a number of high-quality tiny houses come out of Canada.

Quebec tiny house builder Minimaliste is one of these up-and-coming builders creating thoughtfully designed small spaces. We were thoroughly impressed with one of their previous builds, and now co-founder Phil Beaudoin gives a tour of the company's latest work, The Eucalyptus, with a characteristic tongue-in-cheek sense of humour.

The 28-foot long house was commissioned by a client living in California, but has been winter-proofed as a four-season type of home, as the client may someday move to the northeast US, or potentially sell it to someone living in a colder climate. Most notably, it is built with a large 2-kilowatt roof solar system to go completely off-the-grid, but contains all the amenities: dishwasher, washer, refrigerator and so on.

Coming in, the space hosts the living room right in the middle of the home. Since the clients have a dog, the main door has a SureFlap pet door that uses an electronic collar worn by the pet to unlock it.

To the right is the kitchen, and a stairway going up to the main sleeping space. The stairs are beautifully done, with the storage drawers well-integrated enough so that they are not too apparent. The propane heater is also hidden within the stair itself. Safety is kept in mind with a custom-made industrial pipe railing on the outside of the stair.

The U-shaped kitchen offers a lot of counter space; there's an 18-inch dishwasher as well as a full-sized stove and medium-sized refrigerator.

Being involved in sustainability activities has changed my view on this subject a lot. Climate change and pollution are borderless and thus solutions and information has to be shared globally. Rich, 'developed' countries have to start supporting countries that don't have the means and knowledge to improve their situation. Sustainability movement is as strong as its weakest link - whatsorb.com is a helpful platform to speed up the X-Change of Global Sustainability.
