When it comes to tiny houses, less is more. This is the smallest of them all at 125 square feet, having a minute footprint for Earth Day and every day if you can live in one. It’s basically a shack with windows and a door. No room for a loft and no room for a toilet. Only room enough for a composting toilet in the corner. Can you handle using a composting toilet ?

Do you like to travel to different cities and yet feel at home?  Don’t want to be stuck in mortgage debt for rest of your life? Well, Tiny Houses are becoming a popular life choice. You can customize it to fit your needs. All for only $20K to $50K!

Whoa. I’m starting to sound like a commercial announcer. I’m not, I’m just an artist.

My drawing, here, is a traditional style tiny house, complete with vinyl siding, tin roof and plenty of windows for lots of natural sunlight.

The big question is:
Can you live in 200 square feet of space?

sketch: bathroom renovation

I’m planning a bathroom renovation because it is a dated mess, from the 80’s, to be more precise. I just needed to sketch it out so that I could write down measurements, and plan accordingly.

Watching HGTV and home improvement shows are a guilty pleasure of mine. Having learned a lot from those shows, I want to do this project right.

I’ve done wood flooring and kitchen cabinets before, but I’m kind of wary of my bathroom. For example, the ventilation fan and lighting are tied together on the same dimming switch. That’s a no-no in a contractor’s world. That means breaking through drywall to get to electrical wiring. Plus, the floor creaks which means demo-ing the tile and reinforcing the sub floor. The builder who worked on my place really did a shoddy job, rushing to make a quick buck.

So before I update the bathroom, I have to fix their mistakes. Wish me luck.
