Waking up in the morning with the sound of waves or birds coming from outside. Intertwined with nature and touch your first step right on the ground. You have just listened to almost everyone’s dream who lives in big cities. In the big cities that we have created with our own hands, we are drowning every day with artificial materials such as concrete, steel, glass, and it seems like going back from this course is very difficult. Tiny House Nation Nowadays, mainly because of the COVID 19 epidemic, most of the people that are living in metropolitan cities are stuck in their apartments and a desperate desire for outdoor activities.

Today, Tiny House Movement has become a vast industry and market, with tens of thousands of producers and hundreds of thousands of inhabitants all around the World. Although inspired by the Hippies, the marketing success of the Tiny House Movement cannot be explained only by this free spirit.

What Are The Features Of A Mooble Tiny House?
Tiny House Mobile Minimalistic Housing: The aVOID
The architect, Leonardo di Chiara (27 years old), wants to bring tiny houses to big cities. He grew up in a tiny home, back in Pesaro, Italy, so he is accustomed to a minimalist lifestyle. His most recent project, the aVOID house, elevates the concept of minimalist living to a higher level. Tiny house: Mobile Minimalistic Housing The tiny house has a surface of 9 square meters and fully furnished with everything you need. This way, the small homes try to challenge traditional housing. The young architect says to ABC News: "the house is on wheels so that you can take it anywhere. Live wherever you want." In the 1980s, a tiny house social and architectural movement started in the U.S. and aVOID is part of it. The movement makes a reappearance. The trend is all about a minimalistic and sustainable lifestyle, with limited resources. Recommended:  Tiny House: The Largest Interiors In Small Houses Tiny House vs U.S. Homes You can compare Di Chiara's aVOID with a Swiss Army knife. In every corner you can find furniture: tables you can flip out, or you can fold out a bed out of a closet. Di Chiara's hopes people will understand the concept and want to live minimalistic. You can skip high burdens (mortgage or rent) in big cities, such as Berlin. aVOID Tiny City House The architect wanted to create a home where people can live closer to the city centre. He hopes aVOID could be a part of the so-called migratory neighbourhoods (a bundle of tiny houses on wheels, integrated within the city). "It is now a work in progress", he says. "Living in a tiny home is a challenge". According to di Chiara, living in a tiny home enables him to control, test and adapt the house, and to implement it with new solutions. He refers to aVOID as an "open" prototype: a work-in-progress construction site. At night, the air can be too dampened, so to fix that problem, di Chiara worked with a company that provided a ventilation system. There are a lot of challenges to overcome, but still, he wants to live for a whole year in a tiny home. Once it is perfected, he wants to call it a home for life. If you like, you could try out living in a small home for a night or two. There is only one condition: give the architect feedback. Recommended:  Grimshaw Designs Tiny House ‘The Peak’: Australia Bauhaus And aVOID In 2016, the German architect Bo Le-Mentzel, created the Tiny house University (a non-profit organisation), together with other architects, designers and refugees. They explored different kinds of housing typologies. The aVOID home of Di Chiara was part of the small structures on the Bauhaus Museum Campus (which is included in the Tiny house University) in Berlin. Di Chiara says they wanted to create an innovative solution for the process of living, including the design, the construction and living in the home. You will find different kinds of small houses; they are used for living, but also cafes and workspaces. Recommended:  The Devasa Tiny House Raises The Roof The Bauhaus design movement is an inspiration for the aVOID prototype. It is made for a single working professional. Art is combined with industrialization. The Italian architect wants to lower the production costs so that the tiny home will be available for every owner, regardless of the income. At this moment, the materials cost around € 45.000. Di Chiara himself built and adjusted the home. Eventually, he hopes to lower the costs to € 30.000. This will only succeed if mass production is possible. His vision? A migratory neighbourhood. His mission is to present the tiny home and raise awareness of minimalistic and sustainable living in small houses.

Tiny Houses: Brette’s Foldable Off-Grid Pop-Up
How great would it be if houses would be assigned to people, not places?! A comfortable foldable house without any effort? A lot of people see the advantages of prefab houses, like Amazon, who invested 6 million dollars. But also, Mobile homes became a modern trend in construction. Tiny Houses: Brette’s Foldable Off-Grid Pop-Up Sounds cool, right? But for the prefabs, you still need qualified workers, cranes, etc. Please wait for the idea we present to you now. Foldable Off-Grid Pop-Up: Transformable architecture 101 Brette Haus came with an idea: think about a suitcase. You have to unfold a briefcase. Brette Haus took this perspective for prefabricating folding houses with the unique 100-cycle hinge system (you will have 149% more usable space). Imagine a cozy, comfortable home wherever you choose to live. {youtube}                 Unfolding tiny portable prefab cabin at the seashore. Building low-emission affordable housing. Tiny House: What Kind Of Materials? Brette Haus chose to use an extraordinary combination of materials: cross-laminated timber technology and a patented hinge system. Using orthogonal layers of wooden lamellas in special press conditions reduce the risk of house shrinkage. Not only that, but it also improves insulation, and therefore sustainability. Brette Hause: The Interior Everything in the house is very organized: you do not have to worry about something breaking when you're driving on the road. The cabins use 99% less water than standard site-built houses. Also, they produce 80% less waste. Brette Haus wants to build a home with a positive environmental impact, so they use only natural materials. Did you know that wooden houses do not require air conditioning? Air is coming through the microscopic pores, so the room is organically ventilated due to the constant circulation of air. Wood has electrostatic properties that guarantee that no static electricity will be generated inside the house. This is perfect for people who are suffering from allergies. Every home is equipped with all technical facilities: electric wiring, sewage, and plumbing. Each apartment is provided with lights, toilet, sink, shower, kitchen worktop, and mixer taps. Photo by Brette Haus. Interior of the Brette Haus Brette Foldable Hause: How Practical Are Folding Houses? Very practical. You do not need a permanent foundation. You can place the home on any leveled base. However, we recommend you using a screw pile foundation. You can remove it with minimal impact on the land. With the same foundation, you can relocate multiple times. Besides, it does not require much paperwork. You can compare folding homes to the mobile estate, so a lot of countries do not require a building permit. But how do you move? The options: you could rent a crane truck to fold, relocate, and unfold your tiny house. You will need two people to help to lift and unfolding the cabin. Brette Haus delivers your home to the place you want. This option guarantees you that it will only take three hours to unfold your house. Depending on your circumstances, the off-grid home offers different kinds of solutions: pre-wire the house with solar battery kit, a water filter pumping station. You can also choose an IKEA interior design college. Available in different price ranges. Tiny House: 'Brette Compact' The price of folding houses does not differ from the cost of modular competitors. Brette Haus provides their wooden cabins in Scandinavian Rustic, Urban flat roof, and under 4 meters Compact designs with 1000 Eur/sq.m. of any usable space. This allows for a low ceiling as a bonus. Tiny House: 'Brette Urban' Unlimited relocation: exceptional hinge system with 100 cycles Sustainable investment: guaranteed sustainability by CLT Durable: only natural, recyclable materials Fastest installation time: 3 hours including connections Be creative: flexible layouts for versatile purposes Best lead time: 8 weeks from the order to delivery Moving without stress: easy to transport with any truck The comfort of use: lay it on a flat surface.

Tiny Houses: Brette’s Foldable Off-Grid Pop-Up
Tiny Houses: Disney-Themed Wonders Of Design
Imagine if Disney characters had their very own tiny homes? What would a tiny house look like for Woody, Elsa, Belle, or even Jack Skellington? What if our favourite Disney characters embraced the minimalist lifestyle and joined the tiny house movement. Tiny Houses: Disney-Themed Wonders Of Design Partly inspired by Lester Walker’s 1987 book ‘Tiny Houses’, this blossoming culture of homes no bigger than 300 square feet is aimed at saving money and reducing waste. Not exactly priorities in the worlds our Disney heroes inhabit, but hey, it’s 2020 and even real-life royalty are downsizing their palaces in search of simpler lives.   {youtube}                                                                          Storybook Cottage By The Sea The team re-watched their favourite Disney movies to get the most nuanced, accurate hints of what the Disney characters’ home style choices would be in terms of both architecture and interior design. Tiny Houses: Disney-Themed Wonder: Elsa's Tiny Home (Frozen) Princess Elsa's home is a gorgeous A-frame cabin nestled in snowy woods. In contrast, the interior is light, spacious and decorated in pastel hues of blue and purple, and comes complete with a stunning bookshelf. Recommended:  Tiny House: Off-Grid Shelter With Walls That Open On Pulleys Tiny Houses: Woody's Tiny Home (Toy Story) Woody's home is a modern cabin at the foothills of a mountain.

Imagine if Disney characters had their very own tiny homes? What would a tiny house look like for Woody, Elsa, Belle, or even Jack Skellington? What if our favourite Disney characters embraced the minimalist lifestyle and joined the tiny house movement. Tiny Houses: Disney-Themed Wonders Of Design Partly inspired by Lester Walker’s 1987 book ‘Tiny Houses’, this blossoming culture of homes no bigger than 300 square feet is aimed at saving money and reducing waste. Not exactly priorities in the worlds our Disney heroes inhabit, but hey, it’s 2020 and even real-life royalty are downsizing their palaces in search of simpler lives.   {youtube}                                                                          Storybook Cottage By The Sea The team re-watched their favourite Disney movies to get the most nuanced, accurate hints of what the Disney characters’ home style choices would be in terms of both architecture and interior design. Tiny Houses: Disney-Themed Wonder: Elsa's Tiny Home (Frozen) Princess Elsa's home is a gorgeous A-frame cabin nestled in snowy woods. In contrast, the interior is light, spacious and decorated in pastel hues of blue and purple, and comes complete with a stunning bookshelf.

Tiny Houses: Disney-Themed Wonders Of Design
Tiny House With Solar Panels Is Off Grid
It was designed entirely according to my wishes by Buro Walden and built by Tiny-House.nl (Netherlands). Since the end of May 2016, I live in my cottage in Alkmaar. So below, you can read my experience with my tiny house! Tiny House With Off-grid Solar The Tiny House is bio-based and completely self-sufficient; it is not connected to utilities and sewer. The dimensions are 6.6 x 2.55 x 4 m, and 20 m2 of the surface with the loft included.  Now that I have been living in my Tiny House for more than a year, it might be interesting to see how that went with my energy consumption. And if I can work with my PV installation as calculated in advance. Just sit back and enjoy it! In my blog 'Tiny House technique: solar installation', you can read which choices we have made concerning the energy supply in my house, based on which devices I wanted to provide electricity. When I talk about 'we,' I mean the team of Walden, Dimka Wentzel, Frans Hulsman of De Pittenspecialist, and Johannes Boonstra of Victron Energy. I am, as you may have read, not technical at all, so oh how happy I was with those people! Tiny house, what does it mean? Definition. The term Tiny House means a lot of things to a lot of different people, there are many interpretations possible. Tiny Houses are primary, full-fledged dwelling units on a small scale. Building and living in a Tiny House is done from a conscious choice, as an answer to a desire to live a simple life. Tiny House Built In The Netherlands: Solar Power And Hydrophore It is, of course, impossible to predict how it will work in practice, but you have to start somewhere. I had not foreseen that I would need a rather large hydrophore to get the rainwater out of my water tank back into my house, for example. But all in all, it has by no means turned out wrong. I was okay with the current until October. But, from November on, I occasionally came without power. Not unexpected, incidentally: I was warned that in the Netherlands in the winter months, we had a little sun, and it would not be easy to get around with 3 x 300 w solar panels and 2 x 750 wh lithium batteries. That turned out to be accurate; it was too short. Recommended:  Solar Powered House Boats The Netherlands: +31Architects Especially in December, the darkest month of the year. Although I use less than 1 kWh of electricity per day, the panels sometimes could not handle it enough. With this battery capacity, I could only bridge a dark day. At that time, I chose to purchase an emergency generator, a beautiful quiet petrol machine that I had to run for a couple of hours once or twice a week to recharge the batteries. Later I would look at extra PV panels or batteries. Tiny houses, what is the purpose? Tiny houses are the focal point in a broader system to address issues, concerns, and problems of the current day. They offer a path to a smaller environmental footprint, greater financial freedom, and ultimately a self-sufficient life. The tiny home movement enables you to live a life on your own terms.

I have deepened and informed and concluded that such a mill is not profitable or practical compared to the expansion of the solar system. They are quite pricey, do not deliver much, need a high pile and a lot of open space, make noise. Of course, it is okay if someone else wants to try it out, I'm curious what the experiences will be!

My old house was a terraced house with three bedrooms. I searched online for the energy consumption of an average household, which is, of course, very dependent on the type of home. According to the Energiesite.nl website, for a household of 1 person, this is about five kWh per day for two people eight kWh per day. I estimate that I was somewhere in between with my terraced house, let's say 6.5 kWh. With my consumption of less than one kWh per day in my Tiny House, I reduced my ecological footprint considerably! Tiny House Movement The most recent tiny house movement began in 1997 with Jay Shafer who built one on wheels for his own use. Two years later he introduced the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company to the world which provides building plans and detailed information all aspects of tiny houses In my tiny house, I have an incredible Victron Energy installation, with which I can also monitor my consumption well. Via my smartphone I can upload data to an online portal and see exactly what happens. On the image below, you can see clearly what my consumption was last year. As you can see, December is the only month in the year in which solar power falls short. That is manageable! In May this year, my batteries were exchanged by a few big boys, 2 x 2000 wh lithium from Victron Energy. With that, I can bridge no less than four dark days! I think I will come a long way, maybe I do not need the generator anymore, and that would be great, of course. But we must first experience that again! Recommended:  Why Smart Phones Are Killing Our Planet Am I now going to live very differently as far as power consumption is concerned? Yes, I do, but I do not experience it as inconvenient or annoying. The devices that I need or are important to me, I can still use them. In my tiny house, I have a fridge-freezer, my laptop is on all day, in the spring and autumn I can even use my infrared heat panel. I do not have a washing machine, that's the only thing I miss. But I would not want one in my house. I would like to share one with other Tiny House residents. Do tiny houses have to be on wheels? A Tiny House on wheels is usually legally designated an RV (recreatinonal vehicle). In some areas there are restrictions against living in an RV full-time. Tiny Houses on wheels are less likely to fully comply with existing building codes than are permanent Tiny Houses on foundations. What should I do with a washing machine for me alone? Do not need it anyway? I have to keep an eye on what I use in the winter and adjust my consumption accordingly. I do not think that's a problem. It is quite useful to be aware of what you consume in energy. For example, I had never known that an electric kettle uses so much electricity. Or that everything that heats consumes a lot of energy. From March to October, it is almost impossible; the sun shines more than enough. Maybe I ever buy an electric bike, which I think I can charge on my installation in the summer! That has to wait until I have found or created a place where I live with several Tiny Houses and their residents, and we have a shared shed where the bike can stand safely and dry.

Tiny Houses: an architectural and social movement 

Tiny houses started already in 1973 by one of the pioneers Lloyd Kahn (US). After the depression in 2008 it really got worldwide attention. People were choosing to downsize the space they lived in, simplify, and live with less. Sizes are between 8 and 93 m2.. Tiny houses can be rented or owned. Often, they are designed and build by the owner. Some are built on trailers, others are built on a foundation.

Habitants are often motivated to live in a tiny house because of: a smaller environmental footprint by using solar-, wind energy and compostable toilets. Using sustainable building materials, having greater financial freedom and self-sufficiency.

If there was an urge to come up with a sustainable way of living solutions and share these topics globally it’s now! WhatsOrb Global Sustainability X-change Platform is for you, storytellers and influencers to write about tiny houses, your experiences and expectations for the future at home and globally.
