Tiny Apartment Joust

It's interesting when a tiny home has a bed that needs to be pulled or folded out each night (or at least on a regular basis), especially when the rest of the home is so fancy.

Did anyone else see the story on the Awl yesterday about the UK's Shed of the Year contest? SHEDS!!!

@Amphora Did you look at the slideshow? The sheds are amazing. All I want in life is to have my own Tiny House/shed one day.


@Angry Panda The funniest one was the picture of the greenhouse and the shed made to match the greenhouse.

@Angry Panda I want one really badly, too! My boyfriend and I talk about it all the time. He actually used to build sheds for a living!

His mom has a large swath of as-yet-undeveloped land in rural Canada, and she's given him permission to build a house on it. And you can bet it will be a Tiny House!

@fondue with cheddar I tried to convince my parents to let me build a shed when we'd finally move in to our own house when I was a child, but by the time we did move, I was ready to leave for college.
@Amphora Yes, the lonely greenhouse that needed a companion shed! :-)

@Angry Panda Aww, I'm sorry you never got the chance! I never outgrew forts, and a shed or tiny house is the perfect grownup version of one.


I want one.


Thanks for sharing@y


Ok, does anyone else want to be Ms. Horowitz? Because while most of the stuff outlined in the slideshow would come off as absurd and out-of-touch if her pied-a-terre were a 6-room on the park, it comes off as kind of awesome because she was [presumably] semi-logical with her real estate spending and just filled her tiny house with beautiful things. I want to keep my "city clothes" in the closet there and have a SHOE PANTRY and gorgeous chairs upholstered in Belgian linen! And then, I still like her because I COULD have that lucite coffee table from CB2 and a tile backsplash from Home Depot (but seriously, I want those Belgian linen chairs).


I have a friend who owns a studio condo in the Back Bay neighborhood in Boston. Like these folks, he did a total gut renovation of it (unlike these folks, he lives there full-time). What he's got in there is a Murphy bed, which is actually pretty ingenious.


HA! I lived in a 250 sq ft studio with a boyfriend in NYC-no amount of clever renovations makes these seems as spacious as a nice magazine spread. HELL.


@hotdog Was it in the Bronx right off the 1 train and did you have a loft bed with a desk underneath it? Do I know you???

You guys!!! I think I might have convinced my fiancé to build me a tiny house. Oh please please please. Fingers crossed!
