has been using Google SketchUp to design his Nine Tiny Feet project (a nine square foot house). The finished house would include a lavatory, sink, heater, bed, chair, fold-down table, and storage. Here's what he says:
"I came up with the size by asking myself how what the absolute minimum amount of space would be needed for someone to live. I did a quick calculation in my head of the amount of space I took up while laying down and came up with nine square feet."There is some sneaky additional space in the design via the use of attractive bay windows and accompanying cabinets/shelves plus a lofted sleeping area. Well worth a browse for more details and if it's not there already, Tiny House Design should be on your RSS feed.
