Jim Reid’s Tiny San Francisco Home

This story is a few years old but one of my readers mentioned it to me this past week so I thought I’d share it with you too. Jim Reid designed and built this tiny 10′ by 10′ house as a proof of concept for homeless housing. I’m not sure what ever happened to the project, but it was sure a good idea.
