I have a weird soft spot for tiny houses. I think this is because tiny houses lie at the intersection of green and adorable, or this one does anyway. Really awesome.
These very small, very beautiful houses (via) aren’t all particularly green (though smaller is nearly always greener), but they’re still a lot of fun to look at. That link is to a slide-show with twelve different tiny prefabs, including a cute cottage built for victims of Hurricane Katrina*, pods for tsunami victims, and more than one than can be set up on stilts in a body of water.
Many of them are super expensive, like tiny little luxury homes, but I was surprised by the fair number that are sort of cheap.
* Speaking of housing for Katrina victims. So the school I’m going to this year was an army base in WWII, some kind of infirmary I think. Part of the land around the edge of the campus is still owned by the government — it’s just a weird fenced-off lot filled with old government vehicles and stuff. Recently I noticed that amongst the vehicles are out of use FEMA trailers. How do I know they’re FEMA trailers? They say “FEMA” on the sides in Sharpie.
