Kirsten Dirksen from faircompanies.com just completed a follow up video with her neighbor in her tiny apartment. It was actually inspired by a comment on the Tiny House Blog when you posted the first video A Tiny Home for a growing family. A woman said “Hope she does an update interview” so Kirsten has. One year after the birth of her neighbor’s son.
Marta Barceló lives in a 47 square meter (505 sq ft) apartment in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter. She first moved in with her husband. Then they had a son so they built him a bed under the stairs. Then they had a second son, so they put the living room on the roof, built a closet under the stairs and put their sons in bunkbeds in the old living room-turned-bedroom.
In this video, we follow Marta from her pregnancy with son #2 (Milo) to shortly after his birth mid-construction to a year later when their tiny home had been transformed to fit their family of four. Marta shows us how she’s reappropriated old furniture for new uses and talks about how she still doesn’t dream about more space, but just less stuff. —Quote from the faircompanies.com website
