The interior of small houses abroad

Cozy little home for two women and one cat

Cozy little house, in which the mother lives andThe daughter Cozy little house, about which our article tells, belongs to the category of compact structures, often criticized for their alleged unsuitability for family life. The area of ​​most of them does not exceed 30 m2. However, we know that many people manage to arrange their life even in a tiny hut, and millions of families around the world are ready to put up with some inconveniences, but at the same time live in a small but private house. Most often we hear about small houses in which so-called nuclear families live, that is, families consisting of spouses or one spouse and minor children. Situations when representatives of several generations huddle on a compact area are quite rare. However, there are also such examples, and we would like to introduce you to one of them. The top photo captures Candice Dinh, who 14 years ago moved to a rural town near Seattle and built a small house for herself and her mother Baoin (you can also see it in the picture). In China, as in many other Asian countries, living adult children together with elderly parents is not considered something out of the ordinary. A tiny house built by Ding, allowed her to get rid of the need to rent an apartment and at the same time take care of her elderly mother. Here is what she says about her own project: “First of all, I thought that I like to knit and I love my cat very much. So I needed a place where I could knit and keep animals. I just gathered together everything that was dear to me, which made me happy. This, in particular, is a tilting roof window, with the acquisition of which the construction of the house actually began. He was followed by a stove and a projection screen ... " Among the most interesting components of the house is a fenced balcony zone, where the housekeeping pet cat can spend time outdoors. Bunk bed is located on the mezzaninelevel, just under the attic window through which you can admire the stars. Candace herself sleeps in a small room next to the kitchen. She says that her mom is not so enthusiastic about their little house, but gradually gets used and even misses him during visits to relatives living in China. It is interesting that even older peoplebegin to discover that living in tiny houses has its advantages. Ding retells what her mother said about this: “The main advantage of a small house over a large one is its mobility. In addition, it takes up less space on earth. And we believe that man, instead of building more and more, should think about the conservation of nature and try to take from her only what is necessary. Our home and others like it is a kind of contribution to the maintenance and promotion of this idea. ” This is a beautiful story that convinces us that family ties should be strengthened and developed under all conditions and circumstances. What do you think of her?
