Mid-century grain silo transformed into a gorgeous, affordable home for two. Kaiser purchased the dismantled 1955 grain silo online from a Kansas farmer that was then transported down to Arizona on the back of a pickup truck.
Major modifications were made during the reassembly process for the silo, such as the addition of custom-made doors and windows, as well as the ten inches of spray foam insulation inserted between the silo walls and house interior. The corrugated steel shell was painted white to reflect the heat of the desert sun and to evoke the character of historic American rural architecture.

The owner of the studio, Dido Fogué, worked with the design team to not only achieve the optimal amount of useable space in her little Spanish haven, (nicknamed the Didomestic Home) but to do so in her unique style, which she describes as “a heavy metal fan that is very fond of Hello Kitty.”
Elii Studio, the Madrid-based architecture and urban design specialists, began the project from a theatrical point of view. The home renovation focused on creating many quick “scene changes” as necessary depending on the circumstances. For optimal interior living space, the designers added a series of lightweight partitions that roll on rails. This creates the ability to add an extra, private bedroom for guests, as well as separate the kitchen and dining room. For interior lighting, the opaque panels on the partitions let natural light pass through the studio whether the partitions are open or closed. + Elii Architects.

Ecohome | Hillary Hosta | Posted on Sunday, July 1, 2012 - 3:10pm Inspired by the Tiny House Movement, Chris and Malissa Tack designed a 140 Square foot home that sits on a 7’ x 20’ trailer bed.
