A Motorhome You Can Easily Detach From: Meet the Fieldsleeper

I found out about these gorgeous campers thanks to the famous Lloyd Kahn over at his blog. By the way, Lloyd’s recently released his latest book, Tiny Homes: Simple Shelters, that you can order now through Amazon. But anyway you’re here to see the Tonke Fieldsleeper 1 Camper because it’s that AMAZING motorhome that DETACHES from itself. Pretty smart concept! Photos Courtesy of Tonke Campers.


Tipis. Yurt. Avantgardens - Timelapse construction of a Munsee Native... How To Build A Sami Hut In Wood. The last but very important thing to do is to cover the hut with some protection against weather and rain.I choosed to cover the hut with tarpaper because its easy and cheap, or you can paint the hut directly with tar if you want, but it is a messy project to do that....You can see that i have nailed some ribbons over the tarpaper that this summer will be used to mount some (i have not decided what type yet) outer panel on.

Hand-built By Friends, A Wooden Yurt Rises In The Adirondacks

With 2010 being officially declared as The Year of the Yurt by some, no wonder vendors have been popping up left and right recently, each hawking various updated versions of the traditional nomad home (made from canvas, wood, synthetics or even garbage). But even old yurts can have something fresh to say, like this 250 square-foot beauty nestled in the Adirondacks. Hand-built 34 years ago by the Farrell family and their friends, this amazing project shows that the yurt was merely a start for something bigger. Apartment Therapy's green-living spinoff blog Re-Nest toured the Farrell family's yurt retreat. Urban Nomad Redux: Build and Live in Your Own Microhouse.

Glam Tent. A small cabin with canvas roof that can be rented at Dunton Hot Springs in Dolores, Colorado. Designed and built by Reclaimed Space. Fforest Dome. Fforest’s most famous feature is the dome. We were the first in the UK to have them and continous improvement means ours are still the best. Each dome is sited to offer privacy and take advantage of the wonderful views on offer. Some are located in open meadow with plenty of room to run around, while others are tucked into peaceful corners just a short hop from the cedar barrel sauna.

Tiny Swiss Geodesic Dome. A small geodesic dome in Zermatt, Switzerland. Dome built by Pacific Domes. Suspended Tiny Living Spaces. The idea of living in the trees is a fun one to imagine. 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. If you have seen any other cool suspended tiny living spaces, please email me links at

Also… thanks for Oliver Swann at Natural Homes for the Flying View tip! Portable Geodesic Yurts that are Lightweight and Leakproof.

When brothers Tyler and Shaun Bratt began building a structure in their front yard they had plans for a sauna, but mid-build they decided they’d prefer something more practical.

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. 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.

Each pod includes a a changing room, sleeping area, bathroom, lounge with entertainment system, and even a small office with Wi-Fi to get some work done on the go. [Via] Joe’s Truck House.
