I just read the tiny house article, and the comments section is closed, so I’m commenting here! A drive for design is essential in tiny house living, in my opinion, or at least, this is why it works for me. The writer’s example of a laundry hamper is a case in point. In a tiny house, a laundry hamper is not just a laundry hamper. It is an opportunity for a design decision that will be noticed — both in terms of function and spatially/visually. Purely utilitarian objects that are drab and thoughtless will clutter a small space. But a well-chosen, well-liked object stands out as something of beauty. This must come down to personality. If someone likes these challenges, and rises to the occasion of careful design, it can be pretty fun. If someone treats their small space like a run-of-the-mill dorm room or worse – cliche bachelor pad – yeah, it’s going to probably be depressing. The point is to find those dishes that you love that make a statement. Find the bed and bedding that honor the space and double in function. Replacing worn things is part of the fun because you get to resign through repair or replacement. It’s all a choice and it doesn’t have to be a complaint, nor is it probably for everyone.

Though I am a roofer, it is always enlightening and a learning experience to know more about the creative part that goes into making the home the real home and this is what brings me to your blog quite often. Completely loved it, tried duraflame also.
