The 3-Floor 700-Square-Foot Home In Wisconsin

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

This home in Wisconsin might be tall and a bit on the artsy side, but it takes a no frills approach to its use of space and the land in which it sits. It's a beauty to look at and has all sorts of small and modern space secrets on the inside. Come take a look:
Some small spaces are great to admire and we give mad props to those who live in them. That said, many of those spaces aren't really ones we'd personally like to live in. Well, my bags are already packed and I'm waiting for an invitation to this home because it looks like a wilderness dream come true.

Kathy Sawicki and Harry Wirth built this home in 1986 (what a vision for the era!), and each floor has a purpose with only a few divided spaces on each one. Here are a few words from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on the space:

blockquote>The house incorporates the couple's belief in sustainability. It's heated with passive solar, a wood-burning stove and electric baseboards. Cross-ventilation takes care of cooling during the summer months. The walls are a foot thick and well-insulated. The bathroom water heater is the size of a Kleenex box and extremely efficient. The toilet, a Swedish design, uses just a half gallon of water to flush.

Make sure to hop over and read the interview with the couple and check out the full gallery tour of their home. It's quite a treat indeed!
