Who Wouldn't Want a Gazebo with a Hot Tub in His Very Own Backyard?
If you are anything like me, then you’re curious about what life is like inside a tiny home. I live in a 2,000 square foot home and it is absolutely packed full of ‘stuff’. I can’t imagine living in a home under 1,000 square feet, let alone 400 or less (where would I put all of my stuff, like my dish washer, extra-large washer and dryer, two closets full of clothes… not to mention my shoes?!). However, the lifestyle and the freedom is very alluring… and increasingly luxurious. If it’s space within a small space you’re seeking, along with tiny home luxury at its finest, then you should be interested in Tinywood Homes [that] Extend Living Space with Gazebos and Hot Tubs.
Perhaps, at this point, you’re asking yourself ‘what exactly is a tiny home?’ Typically tiny homes are houses constructed 400 square feet (or less) in size. The purpose of which comes from the architectural and social ‘small/tiny house movement’ which, in its most basic form, advocates living simply in small homes. In the United States the average home is over 2,500 square feet in size, despite the decreasing size of the average family. Henry David Thoreau, the transcendentalist writer in the mid-18th century, was an early pioneer, and often quoted as an early inspiration, for the small and tiny home movement. Thoreau wrote that “Most of the luxuries, and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.” And that, in a nutshell, is the small/tiny house movement.
There are a number if reputable tiny home builders which have come on the scene in the last 20 years with the increase in popularity of the small/tiny home movement. For example, Tinywood Homes, located in Warwickshire, England, is owned and operated by Aiden Reeve, a professional designer and builder with over 20 years’ experience. Reeve, mainly known for his company Newfield Fine Homes (and their excellent work with oak framing and traditional construction techniques), has turned his skills to the design and construction of tiny homes. His initial goal was to bring the same high quality workmanship to the ‘glamping’ (glamorous camping) market and create a magnificent ‘little’ product using on locally sourced wood and, whenever possible, reclaimed materials. Although built for the glamping market, Tinywood Homes can be both rented for short-term use or lived in year-round. And if you live in England the homes can actually be purchased, delivered and installed right on your own property. There are a number of sizes and configurations, including a mini cottage with room for a bed, sink and mini stove that can be towed by a truck and placed by a small farm tractor.
Two Tinywood Homes models, the Tinywood One and Tinywood Two, are quite luxurious homes (despite their tiny size) featuring two double bedrooms, kitchens with dining tables, bathrooms with plumbed toilets and a shower, central heating boiler with radiators and on-demand hot water, electrical and a wood-burning stove. But the real luxury is found in the decking, ‘tiny’ hot tub and ‘tiny’ gazebo, which are all optional (but… not really… I mean, who wouldn’t want a hot tub and a gazebo?). Not only do these elements add luxury to the tiny homes, they also add comfort and extra space (utilized in the best kind of way!). So if you want to downsize, but still want some of the finer luxuries, consider adding space and comfort to your tiny home with a gazebo and hot tub!
