Building Smalltopia: What about storage?

Editor’s Note: Every Friday, I post a Simple Living News Update that includes links to some of my favorite articles of the week. In addition to the update, I answer a reader question via video.

The question . . .

Are you going to build a tiny storage shed to go along with your little house?

My response . . .

For those of you who can’t watch the video, here’s a quick summary.

Our hope is that we can fit everything into our tiny house. If we have to build a small storage unit, I’d love to use one of Deek’s designs. Deek is one of my blogging buddies and recently created a beautiful little hut.

He told me in an email that the hut is specifically designed for the homeless, but it can also be used as a tiny greenhouse, a kids fort, a place to meditate or as a micro-storage shed. On average these little huts cost about $100 to make and they are really simple to build.

Check out Deek’s site and and read these articles:

Mindful Internet Use- aka why I’m Exiting the Facebook Vortex

“Mindfulness seems to be a reoccurring theme these days. As I move forward through my life, which is now engrossed in the digital realm- for both work and social interaction- I am forced to truly evaluate the mindfulness that I embrace in every online interaction and platform of communication.”

Failure: there’s really no need to be an ass about it

“There’s a good chance you’ll screw it all up, you know.”

Simple life Manhattan: a 90-square-foot microstudio

“By choosing a studio that measures just 12 feet by 7 feet, Felice Cohen can afford to live in Manhattan’s Upper West Side where apartments rent for an average of $3,600 per month. She pays just over $700 for her 90-square-foot microstudio. After a bit of adjustment she now loves living smaller, simpler and cozier.”
