Electric Camper: Tiny Geometric House on Wheels

Electric Camper: Tiny Geometric House on Wheels
Not only is this highly unusual-looking vehicle a hand-made camper – it runs on electricity. Built from plywood, fiberglass, epoxy resin, bicycle parts and an electric motor, ‘Golden Gate’ by San Francisco artist Jay Nelson is reminiscent of all of those amazing hand-crafted house trucks from the 1970s, but with a very modern power source. The tiny camper measures just 96″x54″x64″, making it just large enough inside to lay down on the bed platform. The Golden Gate is better equipped than you might expect, with a sink, stove, cooler, storage compartments and even a toilet. While its top speed of 20mph and lack of headlights doesn’t exactly make it ideal for traveling long distances, it’s easy to envision owning a tiny house like this for use as a swanky home base for camping.

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

Melissa’s 1947 Tourette Teardrop Restoration Guest post by Melissa. My Dad always wanted a vintage teardrop camper. We talked about it all the time. The day before Easter, we were again talking and I told him I wanted to find me a Scamp camper. The next day my Dad passed away on Easter Sunday. I knew right then that my Dad had sent it to me to see. The camper had a been painted several times. I brought it home, took it down to the frame, and sanded and painted the frame with bed-liner coating. After the Teardrop was reassembled, it was time to work on the kitchen. Then I had my friend, Mike, strip and paint the outside of the camper and the inside of the outdoor kitchen. The day the Teardrop came back from paint, I added my Dad’s nickname to the back in the kitchen area, “HOSS.” I bought an 8-inch memory foam mattress because the foam can be cut to maximize the sleeping area around inner wheel wells. Now that the 1947 Tourette Teardrop is completely restored, I know that my Dad is smiling and saying “I told you so”

Adorably Tiny Study Cabin Was Built for $400 Using Recycled and Salvaged Materials | Inhabitat New York City The hustle and bustle of city life is invigorating, but there are times when it's not very conducive to quiet contemplation. That's why one NYU professor hired Derek "Deek" Diedricksen of to build a tiny reading and study cabin on a plot of land he bought in New Jersey. Diedricksen, who set the micro study pod on wheels and built it almost entirely out of salvaged and recycled materials, estimates that the cost of materials (excluding labor and time) was just $400. Perfect for grading papers or for use as a low-key vacation getaway, the 6-foot-tall micro cabin measures 7 feet by 5 feet and can even comfortably sleep two.
