Swiss Army Knife and Swisscard Tool

Victorinox Swiss Army Fieldmaster Pocket KnifeWhat is the tiniest tool box you can think of? The Swiss Army Knife! Alright, let’s talk Swiss today! Well, not the Swiss language, there are four of them anyway that are daily spoken in Switzerland. Did you know that? Swiss speak German, French, Italian and Rhaetian. Most of the Swiss speak therefore several languages fluently, like me with 5 active languages. But that’s not my present theme. Today I want to present the famous Swiss Army Knife.

The reason why everybody who lives in a tiny home would need a Swiss Army Knife is that there is always something to do, to install, to mount in a tiny place that requires tools. Several tools! Or one tool that has them all in one. The Swiss Army Knife. Honestly, it should be called Swiss Army Tool, because the knife is just one small part of the whole thing.

Locking Security Mailbox

Locking Security Mailbox, BlackIn Switzerland this is a very common sight: locking mailboxes. All houses and all apartment buildings have them. When I arrived in the USA I was surprised that the majority of the mailboxes here are not lockable. I even don’t know why people in Switzerland have only lockable mailboxes. It’s not that mail theft would be a daily threat in Switzerland, to the contrary. It’s just normal that you can lock your mailbox. Therefore mail theft is something that happens extremely rarely. Vandalism on the other hand is sadly quite common.

Top 2 Teak Corner Benches between $150 and $250

teak corner benchCorners are notoriously underestimated when it comes to find new places for storage or display in your tiny home, small apartment, RV, houseboat and tiny house.  As long as your home is not a yurt or a roundhouse you will have corners that most of the time remain unused.  Isn’t that true?

Perfect for corners are Corner Shelves or Corner Benches.  If you want to take advantage of the whole height of a corner, you might choose one of the awesome looking Corner Wall mount Shelves or  Corner Display Etageres.  Their disadvantage is their lightweight, meaning you can’t really place anything heavy on them.  But they are absolutely perfect for display.  Corner Benches on the other hand are very sturdy and hold a lot of weight.

Top 2 Hanging Chairs

Tribeca Modern Bubble ChairBesides floating furniture and multi-functional pieces I like all kinds of hanging off-floor furniture for tiny living spaces such as small apartments, RV, houseboats or tiny houses.  Hanging chairs are of course a great furniture for all kinds of uses, may it be on your porch as a chair hammock or may it be for your kids in their rooms.

Hanging chairs don’t take away any space – and you can use it indoors as well as outdoors.  Well, when I started to look for the Top models of hanging chairs I found that there are essentially two main styles out there.  Both models are available in different colors, with different style cushions and hanging hardware.  But your decision for your future hanging chair will happen between these two models.

Top 5 Window Shutters

window shuttersThere is literally no house in Switzerland without window shutters.  Well, let’s say 90% of the Swiss houses and buildings have them.  I even don’t know what the story is behind it because Switzerland has no hurricanes or tornadoes – normally.  Huge windstorms like the one in 1999 are extremely rare.  That exceptional storm called Lothar swept with winds of 160 mph across western and central Europe during a period of 36 hours causing major damage in France, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. So, window shutters are certainly a great protection against wind and weather.
