9News Did a Quick Story On The Tiny…

Had some fun yesterday chatting with 9News and Victoria Sanchez about tiny homes and zoning codes.


TinyGiant’s Perspective Interior Views

When thinking about my tinygiant’s floor plan and flow, there were a few specific things I needed to address – Christopher Alexander smacked in detail of this process in his book, A Pattern Language. Among those were, my lifestyle, personality, hobbies, career, and geographic consideration.

I’ve run through countless arrangements and floor plans for tinygiant based on the above mentioned criteria: Here is where I’m at now… (I will address the in detail my considerations and reasoning in a following article)

Renderings Of My Tiny Design

The design is a constant work in progress, but after about 7 months I think I’ve worked most of the design aesthetics, mechanical and electrical issues out. Below are a few renderings I made using SketchUp and the SU Podium plugin. Enjoy…

Tiny Home Philosophy Note #297 measured through connection
…life measured through connection

I have already posted a few videos on the site talking specifically on the power of decluttering your world and becoming rich through owning less stuff, so I thought I’d throw together a fun little graphic to illustrate the point. Feel free to share. 😉
