Tim and Hannah's Affordable DIY Self-Sustainable Micro Cabin House Tour Name: Tim Eddy and Hannah Fuller Location: Tahoe, California Size: 196 square feet Years lived in: 1.5 years; Owned Hannah grew up in a home her parents built (her father is a boat builder), so it was only natural for her to follow in their footsteps. Tim, on the other hand, has never built anything but fires. With that in mind, Tim and Hannah started out with 20 acres of land and no blueprints, and built one of the most impressive houses I've ever seen in my life — not to mention it's fully off-the-grid. Tucked away amidst a dense forest and surrounded by wildlife, Tim and Hannah's tiny cabin boasts a storybook view of treetops and purple-bluish mountains. You'd never guess it's only 15 minutes to town.
Eco-Friendly House Made From Shipping Containers When you think of a house made out of shipping containers, you would probably imagine an ugly and out-of-the-ordinary design that simply doesn’t spell home for you. That’s not the case. Here you have a good example of a unique and good taste design used in a home built from 2 shipping containers. The eco-friendly house uses two 3.7 square meters recycled shipping containers, as part of a Savannah project, which sought to deliver a comfortable and cheap place to live. Designed as a single couple one-story residence, it provides everything that a modern downtown apartment would, but for a more decent low budget. Wood is mainly used for the blend in eco-friendly concept.
Pierres en équilibre - Michael Grab Michael Grab is an artist that has been ‘rock balancing‘ since 2008. Much of his recent work has been done around the Boulder, Colorado area. Grab finds the process both spiritual and therapeutic. On his site gravityglue.com, Grab explains: “The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of ‘tripod’ for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks.
