Compact Space - 26m2 Home a Revelation

What do we really need in regard to the homes we live in? Most young couples would say, “2 bedrooms and around 120-140m2 of floor area”. Most young families would say, “3 bedrooms + an office and around 200-240m2 of floor area.”

The first option of 140m2 equates to a home value or debt of around $400,000 (house only). The second option of 240m2 equates to a home value or debt of around $700,000. Based on these figures we are challenging what’s important - how do these priorities effect our lifestyles and where does our money best serve us?

In this case study we have designed more than enough living, sleeping and service space for a young couple with a grand total of 26m2. That’s right folks, for a meagre investment of $70,000 (house only) this couple has everything they need to live a life comparable with individuals in larger homes.

While this tiny home did not have a cooking space, one could be included with a very minor effect on the total floor area. This type of living presents an opportunity to live with low/no debt while maintaining a lifestyle you will certainly enjoy.

All of this has proven to these individuals that bigger is no longer better!

Testimonials

I just want to say to those of you who worked on our home - what a great place it has turned into. Just the feelings of space and style it gives. After a month here we have not found anything that we do not like, or anything that we think should have been different. The spaciousness is wonderful, the suitability to the site is fantastic. 

Simply, it is a great piece of design work which has brought only positive comment from all of our once-sceptical neighbours.

“Congratulations on a very good set of working drawings – the best I’ve seen for a long time.  Clear, well presented and concise.”
