DailyDirt: Small Houses For Fun & Profit
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Another era of building McMansions probably won't be coming again anytime soon. Big houses built quickly and somewhat cheaply aren't in much demand nowadays. But there are a few designers who are working on really small houses (that could almost fit in a McMansion closet). Here are just a few examples of some extremely tiny living spaces that look nicer than you might expect.
- If you think you can live in a ~100 square foot house, you can build your own tiny little house -- and some nice floorplans are available for about $1 per square foot. These houses may not be as modular as a shipping container house, but they look more like regular houses -- slightly smaller. [url]
- Frank Lloyd Wright once designed a very, very small house... and he provided the design for free to a kid who asked nicely for a doghouse to go along with a summerhome that Wright also designed. The original doghouse was destroyed, but the doghouse has been re-created for a documentary. [url]
- A popup camper that can fit in a shopping cart doesn't look very comfortable, but it's a lot better than a cardboard box. The artist that designed this humble abode was planning for a "worst case" scenario of living on the streets -- during a zombie apocalypse? [url]
