Decor of small squares

A project of a very small house for asceticism.

It looks like the implemented project is veryA small house from a student from Wellington It is hard to believe that there are such far-sighted and creative guys who can independently acquire a roof over their heads. Gabriella Grace, a bold experimenter from New Zealand, built an unusual 16 m2 trailer home as an 18-year-old schoolgirl. He became her training project. Built mainly from recycled materials, using various “smart structures” and with the girl’s father’s help, this shelter temporarily occupies the backyard of one of the cottages, which are located 15 minutes from the center of Wellington. So those who want to look at it should hurry. Once inside, we see that Gabriellareally became a devotee of asceticism in order to save as much free space as possible. A small couch, which is also a guest bed, is provided with storage compartments under the seat, and it is made of wooden pallets and a mattress. Through the double French doors into the house comes a lot of daylight. This is what the girl added personally from herself and foryourself: the house has a high-quality speaker system with speakers built into the wall that are connected to a car stereo mounted in the end of the kitchen table. The table itself is equipped with a spectacular lighting, because of whatseems floating in the air. Gabriella jokes that her tiny home is the perfect place for dance parties. The set was made back in the 60s and bought by our heroine for ridiculous money. After careful repair, it acquired a modern and fresh look. There is no refrigerator in this trailer, but the young hostess is going to buy it in the near future, but for now she buys fresh food every day and considers it a good compensation for inconvenience. Electricity comes from both solar panels and the local power grid. Most used for constructionmaterials were bought from the hands of Trade Me (this is a free classifieds site, the New Zealand equivalent of Craigslist). Gabriella explains that the budget allocated for the project was very modest, but she was able to meet it, re-trimming used items to make them look new, and making the decorations themselves. Total for the construction of this simple structureMiss Grace spent about $ 17,000. It turns out that for the money for which one could buy a car, she managed to get a place worthy of being called a house. Such objects are probably not a universal solution to the problem of the shortage of affordable housing, which is becoming ever more acute. But they also contribute to changing attitudes towards economical tiny houses on the part of society and forming the necessary legal and regulatory framework. And what impression did this project have on you?
