Graham Hill's Ultra-Modern Tiny Transformer Apartment

This one's small, not so much tiny, but BIG on space saving ideas! Check out this video I shot recently while out in NYC to teach a workshop for the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company...... This apartment design was funded by founder Graham Hill, and I had a chance to stay, alongside Paul Farr (Tumbleweed) in this uber-modern place. Its 420 square feet, transforms from a one, to a two, bedroom space, has a fold out dining table that seats TWELVE (we didn't have time to show/film it), and the place has storage everywhere! Also below is another new video I hosted/produced, a tour of a storage or shipping container house out in the Seattle, Washington area.   
    Thanks to Steven Harrell at for featuring this video as well!

And.... Hartman Kable's Container House/Surf Shack tour...

  1. Loved this short video. We saw it in Dwell magazine. I love how he stated "5yrs ago I would have built it the same exact way but if I were to do it again it would be completely different"

    ditto! We are in the complete overhaul stage on our container cabin:

    Great site, will check back regularly.

  2. I think this is my new favorite tiny house video I have seen on here - the moving wall is pretty wild
