Sink & Water Heater : A few people have asked about the model of tankless water heater and the corner sink that I have in my house. Here are the product details. I didn't climb under the counter and get the specific model number but you can find one that is properly sized for your number of faucets and whatnot. I love the heater - the only negative is a fairly noticable 'Thunk' when you turn on the hot water heater (heavy relay engaging I guess) In a noisier house it wouldn't even be noticable. But it gives endless hot water and consumes 0 when it isn't in use so there is a lot to like.

2008-December - More snow, more pictures : There was such a strange beautiful blue light just after sunset - the sky was a seamless gray and the snow was practially glowing blue. My camera couldn't quite figure out what color to make things - so there is a variety - the light was changing from minute to minute. The front porch light was burned out (or went out because of the shock of cold) so the first few pictures are just with the interior lights. Hope your holiday is filled with family, friends, good things to eat, and no cares. -m

2008-12-18 Tiny house snowstorm : First a fresh dusting of confectioner's sugar, overnight 3" of fluffy powder. The tiny house is so snug and warm inside under its silent blanket of snow.

2008-10-10, Big trees, Tiny House : The tiny house is underneath a large tree next to a wooded valley - it usually isn't apparent from the pictures that I take at street level - but I thought tiny house fans might enjoy a different view. The beautiful red Japanese maple and stone bench are from a couple miles away in Kirkland at Marina Park. I'd like to plant a Japanese maple near the house - maybe to the right of the porch near the road.

2008-11-01, Falling Leaves : The leaves were so beautiful falling around the house I made a short video so you could enjoy that. I'll try to take more pictures through the windows so you can experience the seasons. Where I live there are a lot of evergreens, maples, and hemlocks - really beautiful fall yellows, oranges, and reds. -Mark

2007-07-13, Loft Ladder : I found this great old oak utility rolling ladder on Seattle Craigslist - it is a beautiful oak ladder, lots of interesting wear and very very solidly built. I'll have to make a custom attachment for it - it is meant to go sideways actually - I just have it leaning there for now. I got the information - maybe i can find out when it was made and how it was used. I think this will be a great centerpiece of functional furniture for tiny house.

Tiny House Cabinet Ideas : These are the cabinet choices I'm considering, tell me what you think, or if you have a favorite tiny kitchen. Assume stylish glass-front wall cabinets, and white or off-white for base cabinets. They could also be footed instead of kick-plate (plinth) style but I didn't show that. The box with the * on it is the apartment sized fridge that I've already purchased. Door to the left is to outdoors (opens in), door to right is to bathroom (opens toward bathroom). Which kitchen layout would you like best ? - or feel free to make suggestions.

2005-10-17, Building Tiny House : The Tiny House is my project to build my mom a house on my lot - she was wiped out living in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hit. I heard from a friend about Tumbleweed Tiny Houses ( http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com/ ) - I ordered plans [Mulfinger plan - might not be offered any longer] and am having that built - I'll be adding more pictures here as the house develops. Unfortunately bureaucracy does not scale per square foot so we're still stuck in permit land. The general contractor is Corey-Dean Homes.
