SEVEN CRAZY HOUSES...WHICH WOULD YOU LIVE IN?

Recommended Posts

OK this is not really a crazy house, but in a way it is. A tiny house. Tx to Reddwolf for the link. I love this, see what you think.  Who couldn't live here?

Living Big in a Tiny House
 
Published on Feb 7, 2014

At 15 Square meters and completely off-grid, Brett Sutherland has constructed a true, tiny house treasure. Packed with unique, space saving design elements, Brett has created a fantastic space to both live and work.

Perhaps best of all, this was all achieved on a budget of NZ$21,000. The Tiny House was constructed on his parents property, and will soon be moved to a friends property in Bethells Beach in Auckland.

This modern tiny house is filled with treasures obtained over a lifetime of adventure, and may just be the ultimate bachelor pad.

Man Builds His Dream Mini-Home In Only Six Weeks For $9,000

March 25, 2014

 

offff.jpg

"Have you ever wanted to live in a home where you still felt like you were connected to nature and things were simple and pretty well off-grid? One man has done this in Thailand and it only cost him $9000 to do it.

 

Steve Areen was offered some land on his friends mango farm to build his dream home. To Steve, it was a home that was simple, inviting, nature oriented and sustainable. As you can see in the images below, Steve adopted a dome like design that has a number of benefits. He was able to put up this home in only 6 weeks from start to finish using cement blocks and clay bricks. While he likes the design, next time Steve intends to build the home using Earthen bricks. It’s important to note that he was able to achieve this for only $9000 because of Thailand’s cheap cost of living. He was able to put up the main structure for only $6000 and then spent $3000 filling it with goodies."

Yeah Land-

 I don't need much space-- I've been living in a 15 foot caravan for over 6 years so I'm sort of used to it-- would be nice to streach out a bit though and have a proper garden to wander around in :rolleyes:

 Yes i know what u mean Triton, your own space hey, we are very lucky to be where we are, no neighbours in sight or ear shot for us.

 

Just the birds and lots of wild life, surrounded by trees, and at the moment a house full of cats LOL, not mine i might add, but that's a whole other story.

 

My husband and i would love to be on bigger acreage but that would mean sacrificing being close enough for our kids and grand kids.

In the next two to three weeks we are moving from 500 acres to 25 acres. We have loved living where we are now, but it is time to go as the land is being sold, so I have packed for weeks and still have more packing to do, luckily all my tools fit into one caravan but the other caravan needs to go on the back of a truck due to it not having a floor and one wall missing.

Why oh why do I have so much stuff, it drives me nuts. Nik Naks, dooverlacky,s and thinga ma bobs that clutter my life...bah, things that one day Im gunna do up and sell or "put on ebay" or some other silly weak excuse as to hold onto them all so that I can leave them in boxes or under the bed and never look at them , but carry them from house to house around the country side.

If I lived in a caravan I could live anywhere and I wouldn't have unnecessary stuff.

"cept all my clothes and books...love my books.

*sigh already I need two caravans just for those two things and then another one for my tools...arrrggghhhh

Imelda u sound like a woman after my own heart, i to have many tools and machines for wood working but no space to use them LOL.

 

And have had caravans that i renovated, big job, hope yours makes it to the new property without incident.

 

Yes been there with the 'it's all got to go' and just keep what u need, the only thing i regret after my big throw was not keeping all my woodworking mags.

 

So good luck with the move.
