Tiny Frugal Home is Designed to be Delightful
The L41 home is an ultra-compact 220 square foot, sustainable, high-design, high quality, energy-efficient house designed for a new greener generation of the newly frugal, epitomized by the author of the Tiny Life Blog who found it.
The designers of the L41; Architect Michael Katz andÂ Artist Janet Corne were determined not to add to the carbon emissions of concrete construction, so the house is all wood; but a special kind – beetle-killed Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels.
Katz and Corne envision a CLT tiny home adapted into modular apartment housing. CLT panels are so strong, earthquake and fire-proof that CLT can be used as a substitute for concrete in medium-rise buildings. Already a 9Â story building has been built in London using CLT panels, 15 stories is being planned in Milan and the Norwegians are designing 17 stories.
