When architect Robert Garneau was asked to turn a Manhattan prewar studio into an apartment that would sleep 6 and seat 10 guests for Thanksgiving, he removed existing walls to create one large space, but added a hidden pivoting wall that swings out to recreate rooms when needed. When the wall is rotated out, the one large space is divided into living room and bedroom and a Murphy bed is revealed behind the wall. Once the wall bed is pulled down the very back of the wall is revealed with recessed lighting, a charging station and a long bedside table. Two hanging closets can be pulled from the wall beside the bed. The movable wall is also filled with storage and in the center there’s a window that can be opened to allow natural light to pass from the living room into the bedroom. Garneau also built a pivoting wall into the bathroom. The floor-to-ceiling glass panel rotates to create a shower, but when flush with the wall the space is large enough for a two-person sink. In the kitchen, an automated table can be raised or lowered to serve as extra countertop or a desk (the adjacent wall opens to reveal office supplies). The sides also flip up to serve as extra leaves and the elongated table can be moved to the center of the room to become a Thanksgiving dining table that seats 10.

A couple years ago, Manhattan architect Luke Clark Tyler, lived in a 96 square foot apartment. Instead of upsizing with his latest move, he chose to squeeze himself and his belongings into even less space. Luke now lives in a 78 square foot shoebox studio. It's too narrow to fit a bed lengthwise, but using a bit of plywood and 2x4s he built his own custom bed/couch. He keeps his clothes, plates, microwave, books, spices and shaving and cleaning supplies in a large built-in cabinet. The rest of his kitchen is a tiny refrigerator that helps hold up his desk (he works for home as a contract architect). While he admits he misses being able to cook a real meal- though he's vegetarian so eats a lot of vegetables and nuts and can even microwave eggs- Luke doesn't see living small as a sacrifice. He loves living in the heart of New York City- his place is in Midtown Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen- and he likes paying just $750/month (cheaper than the shared housing he could find in the area).

Growing older is a gift. Unfortunately that gift also comes with it’s own burdens, often meaning a lack of mobility and thus a loss of independence. This spectacular tiny house design has helped to give mobility and independence back to one very special lady though, through some very clever small space design to create an elderly, disability and mobility friendly tiny house on wheels. Support our show: https://www.patreon.com/livingbig This tiny house has many elderly / disability friendly features which helps to make this tiny home a very liveable space. These features include design aspects such as ramps, reinforced walls for secure hand rails, and an accessibility toilet and shower. Care was taken to ensure there are zero trip hazards in the home and the dimensions of the home were even designed around the ability to use a wheelchair in the tiny house if need be. Read More: https://www.livingbiginatinyhouse.com/tiny-house-design-elderly-mobility-friendly/ For those who have disabilities or mobility issues, one of the best things about a tiny house on wheels is that you can design it to your specific needs. In this case, Merle has a home where she is warm and comfortable, but most importantly, a house which has given her back her independence and dramatically increased her quality of life. This one’s a real heart-warming tiny house story. If only we could all be as fortunate as Merle in our ‘more mature’ years. I hope you enjoy it! This tiny house was constructed by Ferne’s company, Tiny Footprint in Australia.
