Vancouver receives help for affordable housing from CMHC
Atira Women's resource society has been providing housing to women fleeing violence for almost 30 years. There's actually 2 components to this project. One is the original building, which has been here since 1912. In that building we're housing young women who have been homeless, there are 18 rooms and it's communal living. The second part of the project is the recycled shipping container component. There are 12 selfcontained studio units here. The units are affordable, the rent is affordable, it's safe. Women are not only being able to interact with each other.
Experience a 220 sq ft tiny home OffBeat Spaces tutorial
Good morning. Welcome to our tiny house. Our tiny barn on our tiny farm here in New England was built last year by a group of students from Yestermorrow Design Build School up in Warren, Vermont. We love it. MUSIC PLAYING The students that designed it and built it, they didn't go crazy trying to pack a million little things in. It's open, it's airy. So when you're living in a very small house, you don't feel constricted. So this is the kitchen and the dining room and the living room.
One of the things that the students were trying to achieve was, even though this is a somewhat small house 227 square feet it still feels pretty big. I've been in here with 15 or 20 people, and believe it or not, it's not that crowded. You can see the light fixtures are pretty interesting salvaged plumbing parts. I don't think that water comes out of those. I hope not. It's got a full oven setup, salvaged steel backsplash. There's a nice set of drawers. There's cabinets above. Routed directly into the shelves above the sink are.
Drainage holes, so we can put our clean dishes here, and they drain right into the sink a nice way to save space. Here's the bathroom. We've got a little sink, shower. The floor and bench where the toilet are are all made of rotresistant wood, and there's a floor drain. So the whole room is actually the shower. The bedroom I think it's just a classic small house bedroom. The bed is up a little bit higher, so you've got plenty of storage underneath drawers and a big hatch in the back.
But it's not up so high that you have to climb up to get it. Again, this is one of those choices that they made that I think is so wonderful. It's a generous space. There's plenty of headroom, and you feel comfortable in there. So this is an old Japanese technique for finishing the exterior of the building. They took cedar boards and, using a blow torch, they charred them until they were black. And then, they scraped off the residue. And then, they put a light coat of a natural oil on that.
It gives it an amazing, rich brown color. And also, that charring seals the wood in, and it makes it essentially weatherproof. We've been really curious about creative ways to heat small spaces. Inside these hay bales is wood chips and sawdust and a little bit of manure. We've got a pipe going in. It loops around and around and around. There's about 600 feet of pipe in there. And then, it comes back out again. We haven't hooked up the pump yet, but we hooked it up temporarily the other day, and the water that.
Came out burned me. It's 150degree water coming out of this thing. So we think a pile like this could easily heat a tiny house. We were looking to make an investment in energy. What we've bought, in a lot of ways, is people power. And that means having family and friends come, people come to help out on the farm and visit. For us, it's this energy of being able to host people, to have people come and participate in our little experiment here. Love home and design Make sure to subscribe to SpacesTV on YouTube.
Home built with all the most intelligent techniques OffBeat Spaces tutorial
My name's Gennaro Brooks Church. I'm a green builder. This is my home. It's also a show house, and it highlights the most intelligent building techniques we've discovered. So Let's go see. When I bought the property, it was like many brownstones, it was designed for a large family. And so, there were a lot of very small rooms, and very dark rooms. The entire place was eaten up by termites, so it was a real mess. The joist, everything had to be taken out. It spawned this idea of what I call a zero building.
Technique, which is when you deconstruct or demolish the space, you try to reuse all that stuff. You try to have zero waste. So this is the kitchen, and like everywhere else in the house, it's all salvaged. We made the cabinets. They're formaldehydefree, FFC certified. It's the only wood that I've ever bought. Now we're doing four years, many, many renovations and houses. I have yet to buy wood. That's pretty amazing. The doors are salvaged. The beams that create the structural part of it is salvaged. This floor is wideplank maple, salvaged from a.
Renovation for a Corcoran building. Then of course, all the bathrooms are highefficient toilets. They sound kind of like explosions. Here you have a combination of design, culture, and available materials. In most brownstones, you'd actually need to turn on a light right now. What we have here is a light shining down from the sky, but also what's called a stack effect. So this is actually designed to get very hot. And the heat, when you open the door, will go up, as hot air rises. And it will create a vacuum, and suck in.
Cool air down there. Up here, we have the green roof. It's only about an inch or two thick of soil. Over here, we have our beehive, which we collect honey from. And we do have a turtle over here. It's cheaper to do this, than to do that horrendous tar heat sink. Reason being, this saves on your cooling costs. It saves on your need to replenish your roof. It's cheaper to have this paradise than it is to have that hellish, blank, lifeless slate. This is a selfcontained unit, uses almost no energy.
