Beautiful "tiny homes" on a shoestring budget
« on: February 05, 2019, 05:45:00 AM »
Here is one built from 3 shipping containers connected together.  They cleverly used the connecting passageways for closet and laundry space:

Here's a "tiny home" made from salvage materials, with nice woodworking on the inside:

So much more appealing that a huge and conventional home!

Here's a houseboat or floating cabin on a large pond.  The owners created an open floor plan:

Tiny homes made from shipping containers in the Catskill Mountains are being rented out for $165 per night to tourists. 

Idea: How about instead owning one to live in, and another one to rent out?

While the above tiny homes may have cost in the tens of thousands of dollars, this one cost nothing, with the exception of twine and hand tools.  It was built entirely without power tools, using locally sourced materials in the wild.

If desired, small livestock could even be kept in the lower enclosure:

In the wake of Hurricane Maria, some in Puerto Rico are now building storm-friendlier homes out of garbage, called Earthships.  The buildings are said to be 100% hurricane and earthquake-resistant:

Watched the tiny home tour and was really impressed with their work ethic, industry, etc.  Their setup is really beautiful and they obviously put a lot of thought into the development of their homestead.
