The Inspiration for My Tiny House; Filter Studio Live!
Took the Seabus over to North Van today and was taken to see the delightful Filter Studio in all of its delicious woody goodness. Man, wood smells great!
This desk top is silky smooth to; the degree of craftsmanship in this beautiful space is amazing.
The high windows just below the roof line give the Filter a light and open feeling that is very important to me. I'm a bit claustrophobic; feeling visually confined is not an option, so my tiny house has to feel big.
This studio-sized model does, and given it is about half the size that my finished house will be I am incredibly excited. It's not often something truly exceeds your expectations, particularly something you've been living and breathing for two years, so this is fantastic.
And check these windows! Maybe I don't get out much, window-wise, but I had never seen these before. The one on the left shows the window being opened in the tilt state; the right window is opened in the turn state. What is this sorcery? Basically, it depends which direction one turns the handle.
Thanks, John, for showing me your lovely building, and being a great guy to work with. He answered all my questions, asked me some important ones and even gave me a ride home =)
I'll post more photos in the next few days.
