Modern Micro Shelter Pods You Can Use for Tiny Living and Working

This post contains affiliate links.

I wanted to show you these modern micro shelters built out of Sydney, Australia.

They can be used in combination to create a community of micro homes.

Or they can be creatively used to create your own tiny housing compound.

In this situation you might have 1-3 structures total to make up your home.

For example you can use one for living and sleeping, another for working and a third for bathing.

Or they can simply connect to your normal house and you can use one of these as a micro guest cabin, backyard office, studio, etc.

    While I actually like this… I think calling them micro shelters is stretching it a bit. But it’s true, our cousins across the ditch can do it too… well done from Kiwiland. : )

      “Where’s the kitchen,bathroom and storage?”

      Probably in the 10,000 sq.ft. main home. LOL

      (just kidding) Many of these “homes” are just rooms, NOT self-sustaining HOMES.

        The whole point of these articles is to look at all kinds of structural idea and glean ideas from each. It’s too bad that so many couch readers a really quick to bash someone else’s hard work just because it does not fit into their own idea or look like a tumbleweed

    Very appeling design but it is not practical for a home… It’s just an eye catcher.
