Brevard Tiny House | "Life's a garden–Dig it!" Tiny Houses designed by Jay Shafer | Four Lights Tiny House Company During the past eighteen years, I’ve refined my designs to create some of the best small homes available. All of our front-gable houses* of 120 square feet or smaller have been configured to fit between the wheel wells of a standard car hauler, which means that: Their construction is much easier and more affordable.It’s possible to build the homes on wheels or on a foundation, and move from one surface to the other.Each home now has 8 times as much insulation and an unbroken waterproof membrane where the wells once were. I’ve also managed to get rid of all the collar beams that obstructed the cathedral ceilings of my dwellings. Not-Quite-So-Tiny I’ve also designed some slightly larger houses that range from about 280 (plus another 250 for prospective loft space) to 380 square feet (plus 350 for loft space). RV or Not RV? These new houses meet all ANSI requirements for RVs when they’re mounted on wheels by a licensed RV manufacturer. Your House, Your Way Jay Shafer
Low-Cost, Balloon-Formed Housing Concept for Developing Countries Nicoló Bini went to architecture school to figure out an effective way to build low-cost housing in developing countries. In the end, the concept that made the most sense was, in fact, the most obvious. His father, Dante Bini, was the brains behind the Binishell, a 1960s innovation that involved inflating a large balloon coated with a thin layer of concrete that hardened in place to create a uniquely rounded edifice. “My father was interested in the structural innovation—his goal was to go bigger and bigger,” Bini says. Four: An aerodynamic square-based dome designed to be earthquake- and water-resistant. Five: This smaller, vault-shaped structure’s preformed membrane takes the shape of the pressurized air used for inflation. Six: This larger option for domestic, retail, or civic projects will offer a key step toward acclimating the public to the idea of a curvaceous urban contour.

Co-operative Housing About Housing Co-operatives Housing co-operatives are a worldwide movement of self-help, mutually owned associations working to relieve housing need in their communities. The members of housing co-operatives are the people who use the services the co-operative provides. Housing co-operatives can be involved in the building, management and maintenance of houses and apartments across various forms of tenure – rental and ownership.

Co-operative Housing in Ireland Co-operative housing in Ireland dates back to the 1950s. Starting in the 1980s, NABCO worked with local co-operative housing societies around Ireland to help develop social-rented co-operative homes. A number of forms of co-operative housing are possible: Shanganagh Cliffs Home Ownership Co-operative, Ballybrack, Co.

Sneak Peek: Considering Cohousing, By Davie Philip | PositiveLife.ie A Sangha for our times. By Davie Philip Sangha is a word in Pali and Sanskrit meaning association, assembly, company or community and often refers to the monastic community of ordained Buddhist monks or nuns. We have sustained ourselves in ‘communities’ of one form or another for millennia. Considering our basic needs for shelter and community, is there an alternative to just buying a home and hoping that you might get to know your neighbours?
