Urban Nomad Redux: Build and Live in Your Own Microhouse

As the the "less is more" lifestyle is gaining momentum, they are making bigger waves nowadays and it's exciting to see people actually build their own, like this replica of a 50-year-old design constructed by Glasgow School of Art student Alex Farmer, who based it on architect Ken Issac's original 8-foot Microhouse concept from the 1960s. Proving that old ideas can still have fresh impact on today's lifestyles, take a look on how Alex built it from scratch (and how you could too):

Suspended Tiny Living Spaces

Treehouses are one way to set yourself aloft, but suspending your tiny place with cables or straps is another. Here are a couple of clever examples of folks who’ve brought these visions to life. This first example is from Erik Pirolt, an artist in Norway. It’s called Flying View and you can see more of it on his website. This next suspended structure is a 20 pound tent that can be setup in as little as 10 minutes. The production model became available in March of 2013 and was developed in partnership with product designer Kirk Kirchev.

Hundreds of hours later, they finished a hand-crafted portable office for their construction company (Bratt Brothers). With hooks embedded in the living roof, the shelter can be moved by crane and flatbed. Though since it costs $1,000 per move, they try to leave it in one place. Right now, it’s parked on a bit of vacant space in Tahoe City, CA and after two years of permitting work, the Bratts hope to legally use it as an office soon. Yurts. ÁPH80. Nomadic Resorts Portable Looper Home. Prefabricated housing units have become all the rage all the design scene, but nothing has impressed us quite like the Nomadic Resorts Portable Looper Home. This 30 foot long structure has been built from a sustainably sourced wooden frame draped in a lightweight tensile fabric. Although the caterpillar inspired design allows for maximum ventilation, the solar canopy atop the unit helps to power an air conditioning unit if the outside temperatures are just too unbearable. In addition to powering the AC unit, the solar canopy also powers LED lights and the solar heater for the hot water, while the harvesting tank recycles waste water.

Joe’s Truck House. I don’t feel I missed anything beyond this form of life. Yes, I gave up a lot of stuff-books, clothing and other unnecessary things we all registers. But gained freedom. Real freedom. Freedom of movement, that allows me to live near the beach, in the beautiful wooded area, or even in the city. Freedom from taxes, electricity, cable companies and corporations.
