Less is more! There is a lot to learn from the utility of small designs. I am fascinated by this concept! I just listed and sold a small home near the Purchaser's family. As a first time buyer, location and affordability trumped size. Size? That can be tackled on the next home!

 Tiny House Is A Marvel!


 Yesterday after my radio show, I went to the Maryland Home Show held at The Timonium Fairgrounds.

One of the most impressive things was this Tiny House by Sustainafest.

The entire structure is 210 square feet and houses an area for a kitchen, office, bedroom and bathroom. The window shade doubles as a movie/TV screen.

It looks just like a tiny home and has lattice on the outside bottom that covers up the wheels because this structure is movable.

I took a few pictures but there were so many people inside that it is a bit hard to see. The big picture window over the kitchen area is looking out on another display booth.

You can go to the Sustainafest.org website to see this student constructed project.


What a wonderful way to educate and engage all ages to take action in everyday life, improve the environment and our economy.


In July 2014, 50+ middle and high school students from Annapolis, Baltimore and surrounding areas joined forces with military veterans, building experts, educators and the sustainability leaders from SustainaFest to take on the unique and exciting challenge of building a mobile hi-tech, hyper-efficient and sustainable “Tiny House”.


I can think of many ways to use this Tiny House. It would make a great home office, guest house,  a home for retirees, an on site building office, a vacation home etc.

How would you use it?

Thanks for the reblog. Cheryl, your dad would have been able to do this concept with his garages.

I wrote a post several years ago about shipping container homes and to this day I still get calls from buyers inquiring about them.  Perhaps there's a trend toward smaller 'eco' friendly homes.

Hi Cheryl-sometimes small is just too small but I have realized in my newest domicile that I do not need as much space as I thought I did and I love it!

Practicality and utility can be of more importance than size at times. Having said that depending who the buyer is some of these homes can be too small.
