If you wanted a simply but fully functional home, you must use this one as a big inspiration.
The 280 square feet home built by Chris Heininge is probably the best and literal example of “tiny living”. Chris belongs to a family of craftsman, artists and designers who also sometimes do logo printing for safety helmets. His family already built over a hundred of homes around the United States.
Influenced by his family and his experience as a Christian missionary in Asian countries, he embraced the principle of tiny or simple living. He loved this Japanese tradition of a simpler life without unnecessary material objects crowding it.
At year of 1999, Chris began building the first in his series of tiny homes. It immediately gained a lot of attention from the family’s past and new clients. Aside from being cheaper to build, it also doesn’t cost a lot to maintain.
Below is a set of image that feature’s one of Chris’ tiny homes.
So if ever you wanted a simple home, you can try building your own. Although renting and buying a new house is still the most practical way, building a home the way you wanted it will surely offer the best satisfaction.
