    Cute little house

    Even though I'm pretty happy with my little house, I saw this house on Inhabitat, and I love it. Because its a little extreme in its whimsy and minimalism, I'd love to get the thoughts of others.

    Would you be comfortable in it? I might need a few personal touches, but overall, I vote yes.

    Nope. I couldn't get to the bed. As one ages, that bed is going to be a big problem as it requires crawling around.

    Not for me. Maybe a nice cabin for getting away from it all, but, for me, as a practical dwelling place, not even close (accessibility, overall space (including storage), almost-nonexistent kitchen).

    I couldn't imagine it as my primary residence.

    I could live there. Seems like a nice house to me. I would be concerned with accessibility, as others noted, as I got old.

    But I would probably be fine living in a tent at a campground too. haha

    It's really pretty, all that light wood! I can't remember, does your house have light wood inside? I like it because it reminds me of some pretty spaces up here in the North Woods. Very Scandinavian.

    I could not live there; it looks cold to me with those pull close windows but maybe not because it is so small and there is that woodstove. People say yurts are warm, so maybe this would be, too.

    Being surrounded by all the light wood (floors, walls, ceiling) actually felt claustrophobic to me. Maybe some bright canvases would help. Cute idea and I like the levels but yeah, I'd probably trip.

    A lot of these tiny houses work better as concept pieces than they would in real life. My idea of tiny-that-works is around 800 square feet. I'd be more comfortable around 1200.
