Set in the grounds of an Umbrian farmhouse this demountable retreat is made entirely from Larch. The exterior cladding is rough sawn to encourage lichen and moss growth while the interior surfaces are sanded and finished with linseed oil. The interior spaces are formed from cross-braces that provide a stable structure and create pieces of furniture.” - Arboreal

Cúbica has designed Casa Cúbica, a compact dwelling built from a 20-foot shipping container. A 20-foot container has just 160 ft2 of space but Cúbica stretches it out with a short extension at one end. They market it mainly as a vacation home that sleeps up to four. However it would also be suited for full-time living by a single person or a couple, being complete with a kitchenette, full bath and even laundry facilities.” - Small House Bliss

After my first tiny house experience I ultimately realized that the biggest error in the design was lack of storage space. My next living space will definitely have better thought out arrangements especially around clothing storage and kitchen/entertainment space.  First, and most important criteria in my book, is that everything does double duty!” – Andrea
