Tiny box living inside a larger space. It’s kind of like thinking of a whole tiny house as built-in furniture. Cool.

I really love cube shaped tiny houses as long as they have some kind of pitched roof. I realize that technically the addition of a pitched roof means they are not really cube shaped but for me pitched roofs are a requirement.
So when I saw this solar cube I was really impressed. I suspect the roof of the cube itself is weather-proofed but the second pitched roof is doing most of the work, both shading the house from the sun and keeping most of the rain off the house.

Kent Griswold and I were chatting the other day about our tiny house blogs and sharing our recent learnings about popular posts. We’ve both noticed that for some reason cube shaped tiny houses grab a lot of people’s attention. Alex over at Shedworking posted this tiny cube shaped tiny garden office this past week and I have to say I love it, especially the green roof. Moonroom
Steven Klocke has been making steady progress on his extreme tiny house. The modular components are coming together quite nicely and he’s worked out most of the assembly and construction bugs. Now completing the rest of the components will be easier. I’m looking forward to seeing photos of this little building outside in the sunlight. My Summer Project
This is a drawing of a tiny house currently under construction. Instead of normal walls this builder is constructing six box-like structures and connecting them in an unusual cube shape. It might not be the most efficient way to enclose space but it is one of the more interesting designs I’ve seen in a while.

This is a tiny house concept by Sou Fujimoto Architects. It’s designed for weekend use and is a cube 4x4x4 meters in size. The structure is built from cedar blocks held together by verticle metal cables that run through holes in the blocks. The interior is unlike any house you’ve ever seen.
