For those in the Pacific North West, this is for you. The Oregon Cottage Company has designed a jewel. This 8’ 6” x 20’ is in my top 5 of the tiny house design. This home has a full size bathtub, a closet for the washer/dryer (the only hidden washer space that I have come across), and a loft that comfortable sleeps four, or sleeps two with space for clothes storage. This home can be built by the company for a mere $38,000 (the average home price in Oregon is $321,797) or the plans are available for free at the website.
You can find out more information about the home here or you can download the basic plans here.
This separation of the North from the rest of Africa is done partly on the justification that the people in the region are Arab, and thus not African. It is true that Arabs invaded northern Africa in the 7th century C.E., and colonized parts of the continent, and those Arabs were not indigenous Africans, but the north of Africa is not, however, Arab, and speaking Arabic does not make a North African an Arab. As one commenter put it, to call North Africans Arabs “… would be like calling people from Hong Kong British, or Peruvians Spanish. You wouldn’t class the Greeks as Turks would you?
