Green Home Design – Tour of the "Matchbox" tiny house – Inspire your own Tiny House



hey guys J here at bonus videos inside of the match box in just under a day I'm leaving for Europe and I'll be gone for the next three months so before I left I thought I would just do a quick walkthrough video of the match box and what's going on elsewhere at boneyard studios so we can get started right right here which is the front door of of the match box front door being right there the space is about 9 epsilon about seven and a half by nineteen and so this is kind of the parlor area of the living the living room area a couch right here with you know space for maybe three or four to sit comfortably and the cushions are not done with you yet of course this is just a yoga mat and there will be a juxtaposing couch bench right right here ignore all of this junk that will attach to the bench over here and sort of serve as a as a daybed there will also be trunks underneath each of them to store kind of miscellaneous goods simple little sliding table right here and then this is a just kind of clothing cabinet more or less just kind of t-shirts and whatever is stored in there moving toward the kitchen we have a some room for jars at least 24 jars in this shelf a toaster toaster oven for you know chose stating a small baking projects a little cookbook stand right there and then a tiny tiny refrigerator it's a bit like flying refrigerator Tetris to squeeze everything inside it looks like it's actually doing okay right now but it really seems to do the job I don't really generally store much in there and then underneath there is the cellar just kind of line and miscellaneous alcohol moving moving on the the first kind of kitchen counter has to abduction stovetops which are a pleasure to cook with a very energy-efficient as well kind of counter space a food processor a sink just a simple round sink she faucet it's actually down here more the the handle what whatever makes the water come out down there and it's just that little foot pedal and so you press that and water comes out here it's actually all rainwater yeah that's all I'm trying to say right there cutting board little cooking scale and then some space for oils and drying rack and then sort of a little spice rack as well on this side of the of the kitchen we have just kind of a dining table and a bag of dining table seating for maybe about four or five there four stools underneath this can actually double as a kind of prep counter space if this counter is all full and then it actually serves as my little office as well just a laptop a mouse and you know nice a nice view of the greenery outside I used to actually have a desk back here but I with with a desktop but I got rid of it I just didn't find that it was really worth the space instead I've converted this into a sort of pegboard closet most clothing hanging right here and then some gear you know camping gear climbing gear just random things hanging on this peg board more jar space up above I believe they're about 40 40 to 50 jars on this shelf and there's also more sort of spice rack space right up there these are all nag netic so they've easily pop on and off which is which is nice um tiny little bookshelf this is the matchbox library and then a light and then me the fireplace it's an electric fireplace so no no gas needed and it definitely does a great job of keeping the house warm in the winter this is the bathroom right here it's covered by a National Geographic world map wallpaper which is a great way of squeezing a huge map into a tiny tiny house so very nice to have it on there it's sort of very very detailed you're not sacrificing their ego not sacrificing any sort of detail for for size opening up this door this is the under construction bathroom stress on under construction so a little bit dark and a little bit undone but it's a wet bath meaning that the shower water can get the toilet wet the shower is fully operational there's the one right there it's a low-flow showerhead a lot of pressure too much for being only a half a gallon per minute soap dispenser and then so the toilets actually just stay I'm sort of sawdust and bucket down there there's a funnel down that diverts urine and sawdust down there the sawdust comes from over here for the for the moment yeah so you know a small little very utilitarian space full of mirror right there and that is the bathroom this right back here is actually I get a lot of questions about this it's not a back door it's a double hung window so which is that that means at the bottom pops up and the pop also goes down so if you can actually serve as a as an egress you know in the event of a say a fire by the front door this is actually the space from from the back to give you a sense of it from a different angle and yeah that's about that's about it downstairs there is of course a sleeping loft and it's this ladder right here that gets me up to the loft so this is kind of the final act of making the bed in the morning is putting that ladder back over there and then when ready to get back up on the loft these Magnus right there catch the ladder very well and definitely with enough space around the ladder to you know sort of climb down during the night and move around to the bathroom without the ladder being in the way the ladder is actually angled out so it's actually very easy to the climb I can climb it without any any hands it's not too difficult this is the loft an embarrassingly large TV and such a tiny channels but it definitely makes for a cozy cozy little cinema up here the skylight definitely opens up the space a lot very very bright right now if it were too bright and you wanted to sleep in just have a little remote right there the solar-powered blind and that will start to close the skylight and block out all of the all of the light up there it will actually cut down on heat loss and/or heat gain in the winter and or summer which is another great property of the of the blind here's the house from up above and here's the skylight fully clothed so fully closed so I can see not a lot of light coming in I mean virtually no light coming in at all I will open that back up and yeah that's that's the loft about I think 38 inches from right here to the ceiling maybe a little bit more I actually don't remember right now put the letter right back and that is the inside of the match box we can move outside so this is the outside of the front area of the match box and match box being right there to rocking chairs on a four foot porch a flat roof obviously you can tell from the inside the roof is at a two degree pitch so it's not entirely flat and all the rain will actually come down to this gutter and then on these these rain chains right here and they will go underneath the trailer towards the back where they'll be stored in three three tanks totaling 80 gallons this kind of our parking area it's a little a little messy at the moment that is Russo my trusty speed and then this is the the minimum house Brian's Brian's house it's about a 210 square feet 219 maybe and Lee's house the Peres house is right over here at about a hundred and fifty 160 square feet in between the houses this is where Elaine's house used to be the philosophy we have a hot tub and then some fairly newly planted bamboos surrounding it that will begin to begin to grow in it's also a little patio area over here with a wood-fired oven a hammock and then many many plants and trees many trees along here plants shrubbery of the edible sort another bench right over here and that's water pump does not actually work and then the garden we have one two three four five six seven eight nine ten maybe bends I'm garden beds each about eight 8 by 4 and it's been right there and the newest addition to the lot the studio shed which is I believe 20 by 12 I don't actually the key on me at the moment and it's a little crowded in there as it's getting put together then all these sort of our communal kind of workshop area there's a welding table in there and a shop Smith and a nice big table for or for dinner parties and and that sort of thing so that's it this is this is a cemetery overlooking that one in Studios overlooks houses once more

    I want to use the foot pedal for my sink..where did you find yours? Is the sky light shade part of the window or was it purchased and installed separately?
