The small house movement also known as the tiny house movement celebrates minimalist living and the beauty of well-built compact spaces. Eco-friendly materials are often used and the small scale of these residences encourages clutter-free interiors. A large number of compact homes built in recent years have been modern in style as the simplicity of these small structures blends seamlessly with contemporary design.
Nestled among the rain forest located in Mt Whitfield in Cairns this lovely home uses glass extensively and sports walls that are made entirely out of glass alone. This offers a wonderful vantage point that blends in with the surroundings and seems like a natural extension of the rainforest.
It is always better to go for a revamp and remodeling of your existing home than to dismantle the structure completely to get something ‘newer and shinier’. It is not just cost effective and resourceful but will save you plenty of hassle and with all the magic that modern design studios unleash you can still get exactly the home that you have dreamed about.
That does not mean the indoors are bland by any means whatsoever. In fact the home itself compliments the surroundings wonderfully well and the extensive use of glass ensures that you have ample views of both the reservoir itself and some lovely landscape of the San Gabriel Mountains.
When it comes to cutting down on construction and material costs along with implementing energy-saving methods one need not always turn towards ‘futuristic’ solutions alone. Traditional buildings techniques can help a great deal as well as current designers and engineers are quickly turning the pages of history back to draw some inspiration.
There is no such thing as a “typical” deck. Every living space has its own unique style shape and purpose. For example some homeowners may be looking for a small deck – something just slightly larger than a balcony – that’s big enough for a grill or perhaps a small café table and chairs. Others may be looking for a multi-tiered party deck large enough for a tables lounge chairs and perhaps a Jacuzzi.
