Tiny House Work Space

We have been tiny house living of just over a month. We live on the thirty-something floor. The view you know I adore. This could be a 10×10 room and I would still be, ‘But look at the view, it “feels” so spacious.’ As it happens we have a slight bit more space than that. If you missed the preamble over the last while, we have recently moved from a 3200 sq ft home to live in a tiny ‘2 plus’ bedroom condo in the city for husband’s work. Good choice/bad choice?

GOOOOOOD CHOICE! I am so completely in love with my tiny home in the city.

My ever faithful work companion

Life is so easy here. It is definitely a learning curve, as in it’s a different way of life. Husband is still a couple steps (yards, meters, fell down) behind me on the curve, but he’ll get there, we’ll get there together. Thus far, I myself have learned some amazing things.

Versatile spaces:

DIY white Carrera​ marble table top, Kate Spade day planner to keep track of our family. A hot cup of tea and a little guilty pleasure Outlander.

It is so very important in a small space to decide, ‘What do you need?’ Think about what your actual needs and goals are. If you work from home, clearly you need an office/workspace. But don’t feel limited by this, think outside the box. A workspace is anything you want it to be. Think about your lifestyle, your needs, your schedule and your family’s schedule.

My small humans are in school full days now which allows me to create a fluid workspace within our current space.

This space is our everything. Work, play, snuggle. In small space living everything needs a function.

Things to consider are: Do you work from home? What time(s) do you/can you work? Can you be flexible? I tend to write in the evenings after the smalls are asleep or in the morning while the smalls are in school.  Do we need a larger home? No thanks, I’m so happy right now in this space. We’ve traded size for atmosphere and I think it’s perfection. The best work solution for me? A little laptop, a flexible schedule and I am fabulous!

Small space tip: headphones are key! I don’t know about you but I personally do not love the sound of little boy video games.

I’d love to hear your fabulous space saving solutions. Email me or leave a comment below for a chance to be featured on the blog!

Have a beautiful day!

with love Kate
