Over the weekend I’ll be posting several design iterations to my entry to the Who’s Next design competition hosted by Free Green. My design is essentially a cluster of tiny houses.
This tiny house is located on Powell Lake in coastal British Columbia. It’s just 400 square feet (20′x20′) and sits on a floating platform made up of giant logs.
This is a prototype of a flat pack cabin being built for deployment to Haiti. The plan is to setup a factory near Port-au-Prince and donate 1,000 of these homes to Haiti.
This is an excellent example of how the industrial character of shipping containers can be subdued by a natural setting, and a little dirt sprinkled on top… ha-ha. This is Cove Park in Scotland.
Very nice little backyard home office built by Ecospace available in the UK. It features a nice modern design, ample insulation, double glazed glass windows, and fairly quick setup.
CleverHomes is producing a small 480 square foot prefab home designed to serve as a low maintenance cabin or guest house.
I ran across the blog of Mark Grossman and family this past week. It’s a wonderful journal that captures the step-by-step process building a tiny earthen home in Oaxaca, Mexico. I’ve not gotten through all his posts yet, which date back to 2007, but it definitely worth some time if you dream of a lifestyle like this.
Terlingua, Texas is a remote part of southwest Texas near the Mexican border. Pictured here is a tiny dome structure currently under construction. The blog that is recording the construction story is also filled with interesting ways of adapting to such an extreme desert region and living very close to the edge.
