This is the PodShare coliving concept in Los Angeles. It’s a membership-based live/work community, kind of like coworkspaces but you can also spend the night here. You get your own bunk bed with charging stations plus access to a shared kitchen and bathroom. The catch? Your bunk has no privacy! But that also means no funny business. PodShare provides toiletries, toothpaste, clean towels, and food. Would you ever consider staying in one of these?

This is the story of how these 190 sq. ft. tiny rolling hut cabins came to be in an old RV park in Methow Valley.

When Michal Friedrich bought an old farm-turned-RV-park in Washington State’s Methow Valley, he wanted to restore the flood-plane meadow while leaving it open to guests. He called on Seattle architect Tom Kundig, known for his mechanized homes often reliant on archaic pulleys, cranks and levers, to construct alternative mobile cabins (alternative RV park).1

This is Truck-a-Float. It’s a floating micro shelter in NYC built using recycled truck caps.

Architects Matteo Pinto and Carolina Cisneros wanted to create a houseboat to live on in the summertime in New York City. The owners of Marina 59 in Far Rockaway, Queens had given them the space to build something (they paid the slip fee). Inspired by the hundreds of used truck caps they saw for sale along the highways of New Jersey and New York, they decided to build a floating home using a cap as a prefab roof complete with windows and screens.1
