Small House Design

A perfect example for tiny houses is Dirk Dieter’s small house design. While the compact house is not small but tiny, only 250 sq.ft.

In 1999, Dirk Dieter, the industrial and exhibit designer, paid $101,000 for the 250-square-foot house on an acute angled lot in Pacifica, located south of San Francisco along the scenic coast of the Pacific Ocean.
This small house may have been a fisherman’s shack. Up until now he has added a garage and a new formal entrance for the house.
He also added a new fence, which he designed himself and new landscaping. “a little change in structure could dramatically effect the feeling of quality” says Dieter.
This small house design includes removing the wall to open up the kitchen, which has a small stove and fridge and two sinks installed. While keeping an eye out for space-saving furniture, the clothes are kept in a rolling 69-inch-tall, eight-drawer Clothes Tower and the bedroom futon bed becomes the living room sofa.
