Well, well. I didn't know Mr. Tygress would be joining our discussion! Lol.

As for the tree homes, we have seen them.  We thought those would be really cute for tree house for munchkins some day. The natural homes sound amazing!! I was mentioning to Matt that my uncles home is partially under ground and he saves a lot of energy because of it.

The house trucks are interesting... for someone else, lol.  Like I said, whats right for me may not be right for anyone else and vice versa.

And nightal- those kids lofts have some AMAZING ideas!  Thank you so much!  These stairs:

are exactly what I was picturing!!  Of course I also was interested in these stackable stairs :

from this guy http://users.mssblue.net/baka/index.htm He'll send you plans for $30, and said he also has an eBay store.  Very helpful gentleman.

Like he said, we'll try to post some of sketches up.  We're looking for the trailer now, but we probably wont actually start construction until June-ish.  Thanx for the input.  Keep it coming!!

Actually you can drink rainwater. In australia it is common, people have large tanks, the water is filtered and treated with UV to kill any bugs. There are many trace minerals in rain water that are very good for you, plus no chlorine or flouride. Both of which are not particularly good for you

Can you *imagine* how many craft supplies you could fit in the drawers under that bed? [grin]

OMG, those are so SMALL!   Shocked

I can't imagine living in a 65 sq ft house... where would I put my SHOES?! haha

Those space savers look like a good idea for dorm rooms etc though, and I always love a nice spiral staircase.  Cute!   Wink

Wow, that is so tiny!  I am very impressed with the idea of paring down this far, especially because I don't think I could ever do it.  I lived in a 450 sq. ft studio apartment with my boyfriend for three months, and then we were quite ready for a bigger space. 

Links you may find interesting, or maybe have seen already Smiley  http://unicatamericas.com/en/index2-Special.html  Specialty custom trucks turned into RVs - great images of interior organization, all drawers and pullouts and flip-downs...

I will watch with fascination as you 'tetris' yourself and your things into this space.   So many cool opportunities for efficient storage and multi-purpose stuff!

This is amazing.

I had seen those Tumbleweed homes a few years ago, but I'd sort of forgotten about them.  I remember when I first saw them I dreamed about owning one.  I just love the idea of it.  We all (well, most of us) live with so much more than we really need... I love the idea of living more simply and not taking up so much space.

Good for you guys for doing this.  Please do update us on your progress.  I'm very interested in seeing how this takes shape.

this is just like my vardo  which i bought a couple of years ago (from a romany guy) with the intention of making livable and....well living in !! but now im off to uni for 3 years so i will probably have to sell her to afford it and then buy her back or find another when ive graduated.

shes 6foot by about 12 foot and is really light weight  so a car or even a small poney could pull her ( a mule was my original idea!)
