Curious How a 310-Square-Foot Tiny House Can Sleep 8 People?

Although it would probably be a little difficult to find a spot to park one in New York City, I never get tired of looking at tiny houses. And while a lot of the designs out there are quite similar, every once in a while I see something that’s a little out of the ordinary.

О маленьких домиках


Оказывается, он вовсе не деревянный, как может показаться на первый взгляд, а каменный — но об этом ниже.
Самое главное — этот домик очень вместительный.

Этот полностью меблированный дом находится на улице Вилмси, в таллиннском районе Кадриорг. Полная площадь — 120 кв метров, жилая площадь – 105 кв метров. Площадь участка 400 кв метров.

Стоительство было завершено в феврале 2015 года. В ходе строительства использовались высококачественные материалы: монолитный бетон для фундамента, блоки Teхo для стен.

Отопление — экономичное инфракрасное (IFR пленка в полу), на окнах комбинированные дерево-алюминиевые стеклопакеты. На полу — натуральный паркет, камин из мрамора, а на второй этаж ведет лестница из древесины березы.

На первом этаже помимо просторной гостиной с кухней, расположены сауна и хозяйственное помещение, терраса. На втором этаже — две спальни, лестничный холл, ванная комната.

У дома 2 парковочных места.

The good news is that you have options when it comes to transforming this ugly surface into something that adds to your room, instead of distracting from it. (далее…)
