Mad about tiny houses

I am dreaming of down-sizing!
When hub retires we'd love to buy a caravan and do the grey nomad thing and travel round Australia, but we also reckon we'd need a base somewhere....maybe a shack near the beach....a little place to return to and store our family heirlooms.

We wouldnt need much...and just as I was ruminating on these possibilities there was a show on ABC Radio National on the Future Tense program about tiny houses!

Totally entralling!
You can read about one tiny house here but I think this is a bit too tiny for us. Great for one person, perhaps.

However some of them are very, very tiny!

How would I fit all my crafty junk in?

I'm quite partial to this minimalist design - 

Tumbleweed Z-glass house
 but maybe we'd need 2 - one for us and one for me!

Interesting ideas here -

A delicious view is definitely needed -

But this won't happen for a few more years yet, but I can dream, yes?

In the meantime some other sweet tiny houses for you -

I would choose the Tumbleweed. As long as the water level didn't change. Interesting selection Tess.

I love tiny houses. That minimalist one is amazing. I think the most important thing is where the house is located whether it be the woods or beach, it should be magical.

It is very sweet isnt it Lori?
I guess it would have to be a floating pontoon...but then I might get seasick if it was rough ; }

I agree Sonia, you have to find the right location and then you'd be able to enjoy more of the outdoor space too with less house on the land.
