This week we are trying something a bit different! While in Yudanaka, Japan we had the chance to visit and photograph the Snow Monkeys. This was such an incredible experience for me and I hope you enjoy the video. Let me know if you would like to see more travel content on the channel in the future!
There is something undoubtably romantic about the idea of retreating to a little cabin in the woods. This notion has been wonderfully encapsulated by this spectacular off-the-grid cabin, which is hidden amongst the rural mountains of Sakuho, Japan.
It’s possible that this is one of the smallest homes that we have visited on the show so far and yet without doubt it is one of the most spectacular in it’s design. Japan is a country already world-famous for it’s small space designs, and so it should come as no surprise that when Japanese master-craftsman Tagami Haruhiko turned his attention towards the tiny house movement, amazing things would happen.
Japan is famous throughout the world for it’s high population, cramped living conditions and downsized architecture. Even by Japanese standards though, this tiny Tokyo apartment is a lot smaller than usual. At only 8 square meters (82 square feet) this simple home is so small that it’s occupant Emma is able to reach out and touch both walls. Thankfully, some clever design elements allows the micro apartment to be a very functional and cosy home.
Adrienne and Dave are no ordinary couple and they have come up with a truly unique plan for their retirement. After selling the family home to their son, the couple built a Tiny House on wheels where they plan to spend their golden years in style!
2016 has been an incredible year. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed bringing you tours of all the amazing tiny houses I’ve discovered on my travels this year. Here is a list of my favourite 5!
If you’ve ever dreamt of living the van life and traveling the world, then this is a project that you need to see. Michal and Hana (originally from the Czech Republic) arrived in New Zealand with one year to travel the country. In order to make their journey comfortable, they set about converting an old Ford Transit ambulance into a stunning home on wheels.
Ness and Jess are two incredible ladies. After moving to New Zealand, they decided to begin their new life in a strange country by building a Tiny House on wheels. With minimal building experience but lots of passion, this dynamic duo have designed and constructed a true tiny masterpiece.
