A Vietnam based architecture firm, Vo Trong Nghia Architects, has began developing prefabricated housing for low income families in Vietnam. This concept of tiny housing would provide the people with not only a safe place to live but a durable long-term shelter too.
Since 2012 the firm has been working to create these houses for those who earn less than $100/month. Normally these people would be forced to live in temporary shacks. So the architects are creating what they call the S House 2 which can provide affordable, durable, low cost and low maintenance homes for those in need.
The current cost to develop one of these homes in Vietnam is $4,000. Below you will see that this 322 sq. ft. home is very basic. The only thing I’m concerned about is the bathroom which I wasn’t able to find but assume is located as a separate structure nearby (see below).
The S House 2 is a long structure with a sleeping area at one end, dining table in the middle, and a space for personal items at the other end. Please enjoy below.
Today we want to introduce you to Foxdown Huts! They recently reached out to show us their two amazing Shepherd Hut models — the Octagon (a shell) and the Fox Den (outfitted with tiny, collapsible furniture).
Starting at £10,000 (~$13,800 USD), these affordable homes are a great choice for a tiny house, guest room, or an Airbnb to rent out and make a little side income! They’re 12.5ft x 7.5ft, and the finished hut comes with a double bed with storage, double hob, electric fire or log burner, folding table & chairs and log storage! They also offer custom huts that can include a kitchen or bathroom area.
You can learn more and contact Foxdown Huts on their website here.
Larry contacted us to show us his gorgeous creation, the Casa Maria. He built this vacation home about four years ago in Costa Rica for less than $60,000.
Including the loft space, the home comes to 764 square feet. It’s built out of cypress wood, and has asphalt roofing. Underneath the neat curved roofline of the house is a carport and laundry room. The main living space is wide-open with couches, a fireplace, kitchenette and pool table. There’s a bedroom and a bathroom, as well.
Enjoy the photo tour of Larry’s wonderful small home!
