I Bought an Abandoned Tiny House

Тәжірибелік нұсқаулар және стиль

I converted an abandoned building into my first (tiny) home.
Here's the full process of that renovation.
Instagram: orpatchy 👨‍🦰
In 2020, I bought my first home... an abandoned building in my village which was filled with old car parts and tools. Over the next year, I had the building renovated into a nice little tiny house cottage which I now live in and am very pleased with! I hope you enjoyed the process.

    As a architectural student this is so satisfying to see. Love what you did with the space. I wish that transforming older buildings for new purposes was done more often instead of demolishing them.

    Well, you can demolish them and use the good materials for second hand building. That's how i do it, like recycle bricks from old stone houses or windows, door's, etc

    You truly transformed this diamond in the rough to a cozy and comfortable home. I love the coffee table. It casts a glow similar to an evening sunset and warms the room even more. The fact that it is transparent also opens up the room to make it look larger. The rug under table works well. Always go neutral to open up an area. Well done. I am amazed!

    I don't know how this came to be on my KZread page this evening, but I'm so glad it did! What a lovely thing you did, rescuing that sad little building and turning it into a charming, romantic cottage. I got the impression that the house kept getting happier as you went ahead, Your choices for the interior were/are inspired--all white with the blue gray accents. If you ever get tired of editing videos you could easily become an interior designer. I love all of the windows, and especially the window seat, the perfect space to curl up and read all of those books you gathered into the old window niche. The glass table was an inspired choice. A wood table might have made the room seem cramped. Your clothes storage is minimalist to say the least. I wish mine was. The built in drawers are beautiful. Something interesting to know: You can see more through small paned windows like yours than you can from a large single pane. I learned that from a book I fell in love with nearly 40 years ago (Oy! can't believe it's that long ago). It's called A Pattern Language. It's about architecture --sort of, but not in the way one would usually think about architecture. It's about living spaces and understanding what makes us feel at ease in a space as opposed to what makes us feel uncomfortable, even anxious, for reasons we might not understand. I discovered the book by accident while visiting someone. The next day I went out and bought it. $50!!! And I had no business spending that kind of money. I read it all the time. It's almost like poetry. Everything you did in that little house was right out of that book, even though it would have recommended plastered walls instead of plaster board. However, the plasterboard will keep you warmer in winter and cooler in summer. I live in Italy in a house built in 1298. Definitely plaster and stone walls. Gorgeous, but the cold and damp seep in during the winter, and once the summer heats up, like the awful one we just lived through (are still living through!) the heat and humidity become overwhelming. I only have one question: Why did you fill in the fireplace? As I write this I'm sitting in front of the enormous fireplace in the kitchen, the thing I love most about my apartment in this ancient place. Maybe someday you'll decide to open up yours again. Who knows? 🥰 A beautiful, loving restoration. You should be proud.

    @Claire Anderson Graham Kellerman I just found your comment. I can't believe there's someone else out there who loves A Pattern Language. I'm so pleased you have the same passion for that book. You know it's looked down upon by "real architects". It's considered somewhat like a cult. I was shocked to learn that, but when I thought about how houses are built, starting after the war, just boxes. No secret places, no surprises, no soul. A Pattern Language is about building with soul. Am so happy to have found a soulmate 🙏

    A Pattern Language is my favorite book; giving so many cues as to what Humans love, like a bed in a nook, or 5 people sleeping in the living room, together!, and the size of a village square, no more than 35-people big, and it goes on and on, and was written in sections with a one-hour read of the whole book if you only read the BOLD bits on each page. It is a huge book, so a one-hour overview is a great way to begin. Such an inspiring book.

    I think the carpet could be better, table is great, transparant so you bring in the feeling of space like said before. But the rug takes away that feeling of space quite a bit, which is a necessity in such a small space.

    I vote for clear glass framed with metal for the coffee table. The coffee table does not “feel” good in the space which is what bothers you. It is too avant- garde modern and sticks out, drawing too much attention to itself. Stay with your industrial design and don’t go for just one extremely modern piece unless you add more of the same into the room, so it settles down. It’s ok to mix styles, but one must dominate and the other must have more than one piece in the visual area.

    Stunning! I love what you did with this cottage. Please don’t change the table. I love it and think it adds a very nice and subtle pop of color in the otherwise monochrome palette. I do love the monochrome grey, though, don’t get me wrong. I am also very impressed with how you were able to use the spaces so efficiently and tailor them to your needs. That was brilliant in your bedroom making the half wardrobe. Sadly, I wear dresses so I couldn’t do that but for a man who just wears shirts and pants it is perfect. The preservation of the cottage on the outside is really lovely to see, even though you made a few changes, they were not drastic. Love the cobbles! But then when you walk in it is fully modernized. It is just an amazing juxtaposition that works beautifully. BTW-You are a hilarious narrator. I laughed out load several times!

    That first building you didn’t know who owned it, it used to belong to my grandad, it was his workshop. They lived in Broomfauld Cottage, the first house on the row of cottages. The building used to be part of the old piggery, but he used it as storage and workshop when he kept chickens just further up the hill. Amazing to see The Cobbles again, many happy weeks spent there.

I speak from England; there are some differences in the law surrounding property buying in Scotland.

    This is simply lovely. It's very comfortable and welcoming. The pebbling outside is gorgeous. Your dad did such a nice job. The outside renovation is fabulous, you took an eyesore and made it into a beautiful little cottage. The glass table works because it is virtually invisible so it doesn't crowd the living room. I'd like to ask why you put the kitchen upstairs rather than downstairs with the living room and the bedroom and work desk upstairs?

    @cagney billingsley Because there isn't as much open space downstairs, what with the stairs. He very intelligently located the bathroom under the stairs. The entire upstairs is one big living room-kitchen space, which makes the small cottage seem spacious.

    @cagney billingsley he lives in a village in Scotland, doubt he's overly concerned about someone coming in through his sash windows at night. There'll be little enough foot traffic past the front of the house and it's set back from the road a decent way. He clearly wanted more space for his living room which I'd agree with on balance.

    I really love how you transformed the building - very tasteful. In terms of the table, as you asked, maybe wood would be a warmer effect and go with the flooring and doors but I love the pick lighting you have behind the tv and under the units which goes with the pink in the table...so that works well...I loved seeing the transformation of your building stage by stage, I actually learnt a lot. I would like to have known the costings too. Many thanks

    Wow, what a beautiful space! I love how everything is tailored to your needs and preferences. The simple colour scheme gives the whole place a lovely modern freshness. Really love the view of the village from the living room too. I think you'll get some very generous offers should you ever decide to sell the property on. It would also make an ideal holiday home for individuals and couples if you decided to rent it out. Well done you! 😊

    I love this house. It may be my favorite tiny house I’ve ever seen. It’s not as ‘fancy’ as some but the way you saved and transformed an abandoned building is so inspiring. I like the simple pared down decor. Frankly, I wish it was mine.

    Spectacular job! So well-done! From start to finish, excellent design / placement all around. I vote to keep the coffee table! (The texture of the rug is good, so is the lighter color - maybe not the generic criss-cross pattern?) ...I would've liked to have seen a window at the top of the stairs just to keep it real and perhaps w some sort of stained / leaded glass ...and I'd be inclined to have wood banisters instead of the metal as it's a bit too cold for my taste, but understand why you'd chosen it. Have you considered flower boxes out front on the windows?

    Fantastic job, must have cost a fortune. Personally, I wouldn't have blocked in the fire place. An open fire is magical, looking at the changing patterns of flames in burning wood. Not sure the table looks good, but glasss definitely, just a little more traditional, maybe glass and wood together. You've definitely got talent anyway and I'd consider buying other old properties + doing them up for sale, if you could get the fund s
