Did you hear? We’re going to have an actual Small Living Magazine in the Netherlands! A digital magazine stuffed with news, articles, columns, vlogs, so lots of inspiration and information about living small and everything that comes with it. Until April 27th you can become a member with a big discount: with crowdfunding you can […]
It’s been a little quiet for a while; I wasn’t having three interviews and photo-sessions a week anymore. I didn’t mind at all though; it was a lot to handle this last year. I love doing it, but it shouldn’t become a 24/7 thing, if you know what I mean. But hey, it also makes […]
The Tiny House movement live on RTLZ
There I am, covered in a thick layer of makeup in the RTL studio in Hilversum. “Move your chair slightly to the left please”, I am asked. The makeup artist is busy with the final touches… and three, two, one, and we are live. I am a guest on the program ‘Van Liempt Live’, Next […]
The excitement builds
My heart is beating like crazy: I’ve been invited as a guest on the RTLZ program ‘Van Liempt Live’ to talk about the Tiny House movement. The broadcast is Monday 25th April from 22:00 to 23:00. Wow! What an amazing opportunity…do I have what it takes? What if I mess up and can only stammer […]
Silence before the storm
It’s quiet at the moment; perhaps it is the silence before the storm? On Sunday November 8 Laurens, Lena, Dimka and I will get together again to brainstorm about the building of my house. Because we are participating in the program ‘Build your own dream home’, there is some time pressure. It really has to […]
Your own dream home? Yes please!
A few weeks ago, Laurens phoned me, all excited, because he had spoken to someone from the Channel SBS6’ television program ‘Your own dream home’ and he had told them about me. He wondered whether it was okay to give them my contact details. Of course, I was very curious, so I agreed. Not long […]
Lots of interest in the Tiny House movement in the Netherlands!
I’ve had quite a bit of media exposure recently, but this week it really took off! And not just me; Lena and Laurens are getting even more attention, especially after the publication of their article on Nu.nl entitled: ““First architecture practice for Tiny Houses established”. Dimka from tiny-house.nl was also in the spotlight with a great […]
Alkmaarsche Courant July 21 2015
An ordinary terrace house in Oudkarspel, in an ordinary residential area that could easily be compared to hundreds of other residential areas of about 20 years old. Everything about Marjolein Jonker is perfectly ordinary. A woman, an office job, a settled life in the starter home she moved into fourteen years ago. But at the […]
On the radio! And how to continue?
I just got home from Hilversum, where I was a guest on Thomas van Vliet’s Radio 1 show ‘Nachtkijkers’ for four hours. What fun that was! I was a bit nervous beforehand; you don’t get invited to be on a national radio show every day. And I couldn’t help thinking: what if I say or […]
Every road has a few bumps in it
You win some, you lose some. So far, it’s been wins mostly, so my luck was bound to run out sometime. Today I drove to Olst with Koen Berendse to look at the plans for my Tiny House. And it turned out great! Daniel really understood what is important to me: a beautiful kitchen with […]
