Tiny/Small House w/Kids? Check out this LEGO Storage Idea!

As I've mentioned many times, while I DO build and design tiny houses, tree houses, cabins, and backyard offices for a living, my family of five (four of us and a huge dog) do not live in a TINY house, but a small one- around 800-900 square feet. I also run my businesses out of this space, so efficiency in storage IS something I have to contend with.

So, when it comes to a massive lego brick collection, the three or four separate, and failing, boxes just had to go.

So here's what I came up with. Its part storage, and part colorful decor. Check it out, and I hope you enjoy it. Pass it on too, as I know MANY families contend with the "OVERABUNDANCE IN LEGOS" challenge.

Yes, I could get rid of them, or downsize the collection, but thats all well and good in theory! ;)

Also, and this is the first time I'm going to mention it....

September 15-16-17th (and maybe an add-on day the 18th)..... "TINY HOUSE SUMMER CAMP 4" in Northern VT on my 10 acre compound of cabins and tree houses! This ALWAYS sells out fast, so if interested, let us know and keep and eye out for sign-ups! It will be limited to 40 people again....

Guest speakers, demos, stay in cabins and tree houses, live music, ACTUAL HANDS-ON BUILDING, camp-sites included on the premises, and MORE!
The weekend- with 30+ hours of building and classes is the same price its been since 2010- $399 per person. If interested, email us at
