Founder, writer & chief editor

Jamie has a background in sustainable design. Passionate about recycling and especially using reclaimed materials to design furniture.

He started tinyhousehugeideas.com way back in 2016 after spending his student life in a small apartment frustrated with the design of furniture and appliances that paid little attention to the efficient use of space.

With the website he hopes to highlight outstanding pieces of design that make the most out of small spaces and are also energy efficient.
