Portable tiny house built from recycled water tanks can be towed by a bicycle Tiny houses come in all shapes and sizes, and are built from all sorts of materials, but this tiny house concept uses a novel approach to creating a lightweight portable dwelling that is also said to be able to float on water. I've been following the tiny house movement for over a decade now, ever since my family's foray into living in a very small space, and even after seeing hundreds upon hundreds of different tiny house designs, I still come across innovative concepts for using repurposed materials to build miniature dwellings that just seem to make sense, but that are only obvious after seeing them. And this portable tiny house design is definitely up there in terms of being a potentially viable idea that combines reused materials in a way that takes advantage of the materials' inherent strengths, while also being versatile and adaptable. © Stereotank

The bottles were filled with sand and are held together by mud and cement to form a solid wall that supposedly is stronger than cinder clocks. 9 great ways to use a tiny house (other than as a home) Whether you call them tiny houses, micro-homes, or mini houses, ultra-small buildings are rapidly gaining popularity for those who want to downsize and minimalize their personal environmental footprint. It's refreshing to see so many people choosing a different path for their day-to-day living experience than the conventional oversized dwellings that make up the bulk of the houses on the market. Living in a tiny house can reap dividends beyond just being able to get to mortgage-free sooner and cutting utility bills down to size, as learning to live more simply and minimally can offer a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment that isn't easily found in any other living environment. But for those who think, "I could never live in a house that small," tiny houses also easily lend themselves to a range of other uses, none of which require living in them full-time. 1.
