Small spaces: E.D.G.E.

The E.D.G.E., a small prefab house by Revelations Architects/BuildersShow me photos of a small house and I’m all eyes. Include plans and my eyes pop out of my head! Kids, husband, small spaces, icecream, wandering markets… just a few things I’m crazy about.

So this “experimental dwelling” by Revelations Architects is the latest to get pinned to my Small Spaces board.

It’s design is “distilled to the four primary human functions of eating, sleeping, bathing and fellowship”. I wonder if those functions are in order of priority! I’m all for eating and sleeping being up front there!

Its low maintenance design, eco-efficiency and functional plan make it perfect for either a holiday home or a more permanent dwelling. Definitely might have to steal a few ideas from this one when I build my dream small space… one day!

We start tonight on another long weekend here in NZ so that’s it from me this week. I’ll hopefully have something awesome to share from our two long weekends efforts, but keep in mind we’re in holiday mode next week too.

Small spaces: miniHOME

miniHOME have been hanging around on my favourites bar for a while (who needs that any more when there’s pinterest?!) and I’ve just been having another look… they’ve been up to lots since I last got excited about this little space:

I’m not a huge fan of the exterior colour scheme, but if you venture beyond that and get inside, there are just so many clever little uses of space I can’t help but admire the design.

There’s fold up furniture, benches that double as storage space, bookshelves (and a broom cupboard) built into the stairs and so many other features that make this tiny cabin one that I could so easily live in (once the kids leave home!).

Go have a look at what else they’ve got – there’s even some family size versions if you’re fine with small!
