Wowhaus: craft, tiny architecture & back-to-land home/studio




It’s tough to define just what Wowhaus designers Scott Constable and Ene Osteraas-Constable do. They create furniture, art, architecture, crossover into agriculture and have even designed a wooden skateboard and now- in a nod to the back-to-the-land movements before them- they have settled on a 3-acre homestead where there’s plenty of space to create, grow their own food and host large, public gatherings.

    With all do respect I have to disagree with you. My wife and I live below the poverty line. We have chosen to focus our lives on helping those who have little to nothing. Because of this we make very little money. We live in a 200 square foot home and share a kitchen and bath room with others who have chosen the same. Because we all live small we can focus on the poor and join them with out being ham stringed by our poverty. We live well because we live small.

    We did the work for our homes many do that and the homes are far less expensive. Some have the money to buy and get out of their large homes so they can focus on other things. This movement is for every one. Some in it are poor some of these vids show those people some in this movement are in the middle and some are very rich. No one is rejected in this community because of fiscal standing. Please address some of your hurt in life before you spread such hate and anger.

    Of all your amazing videos, this one happens to be my favourite. Certainly a difficult choice, to say the least, but it is. I really connect and 'get' what he is saying. This video and message has helped solidify what I would like to do in my own life. Thanks.

    This guy has obviously undertaken a course on buzzwords.

    Rather than a chair, place a bench against an interior or exterior wall and lean on the wall. Arm rests are not really needed.

    Try a NARROW folding shelf beneath a windowsill to enjoy different views. Use the shelf to cook, dine or study. Use a foldable stool to sit on. Store everything away and use the space for other activities. Portable possessions can decrease the cost and size of a small home.

    Keep it simple. Rather than a table, eat with your plate in your lap. Rather than a chair, try a floor cushion.

    Store a wardrobe in pull-out baskets beneath a bed. To sort through a basket, place it on the bed. Try 5 tops and 3 bottoms to create 15 outfits. Keep a handy list of outfits. Closets and bureaus may not be needed.

    For spaciousness, face furniture towards large, long windows. Try a pale yellow interior for a glow on cloudy days.

    Rather than use hangers, iron an outfit on a towel and wear it.

    Try pull-out STORAGE ottomans beneath a padded bench to create additional seating or a larger bed as needed. Place the pads from the back of the bench over the ottomans. Store a wardrobe and kitchenware in the ottomans. Additional furniture or storage may not be needed.

    I get a very George Lucas feel from this guy.
