Nine Tiny Feet

Nine Tiny Feet is a very promising new blog by Michael Janzen in which he writes about the construction of a nine square feet building which, while is just about fine for living in (he's 6ft so it would be a bit of a squeeze), he intends to use as a home office. Here's what he says:
"I’m beginning to develop a theory that nine square feet is all we really need and that every square foot after that is for added comfort, vanity, or people."
The design includes a large porch, sleeping loft, small composting toilet, a 12V DC fridge from Koolatron,a kitchen bay window which will contain a sink and stove, and a Dickinson Marine fireplace plus cabinets and solar panels for electricity generation. He's also building a slightly less tiny Tiny Free House.

  1. Hi Alex - off topic I know, but just to let you know I've voted for your shed!

  2. Ooh, I hope that doesn't affect my judge's integrity!

    But many thanks.

    He's wasting his time. Why not just commit a crime and go to jail. Then he would really know what it is like to live in 9 square feet.
