This is the CroPod, a modern Irish “Hobbit” vacation home in Glencolmcille, Ireland where you can stay!
The 226 sq. ft. tiny abode has everything you need in a studio-style setting including a kitchenette and bathroom, but it’s the view that will steal your heart! It was recently built by a Tiny House Talk reader who is offering a £50 discount to fellow readers who book with his special voucher code. You can get the code below the pictures.
The Portuguese architecture firm, led by Sérgio Nobre, designed this small space (about 616 sq. ft.) from an outdated existing apartment that’s long and thin. Although currently unfurnished, the interior features bright white walls, fun corners and zig-zagged walls, and a ton of open space. They provided the floor plan so you can get a feel for the house as a whole.
Do you like white walls? How about modern spaces? Read more about what they did to the space on the last page.
According to TreeHugger, The+Partners and DNC Architects designed this tiny house as a prototype for alternative housing in Pyeongchang, Gangwon-do, South Korea, where the 2018 Winter Olympics will be held. There’s not enough accommodation in Gangwon city for all the people that will attend the winter games, so the architects are building tiny houses!
Gangwon city is one of the few clean areas left in Korea and it needs to be protected and kept that way. ‘The Tiny House Of Slow Town’ project has the purpose of providing accommodations with the maximized housing facilities while using the least materials, [and] that are environmentally friendly.
Maricela Salas and Mary McGoff admit they were “naive” about buying raw land before making their purchase of a hillside lot in the Berkshires. It turned out to be too steep and rocky for a traditional foundation. To avoid “blasting” and ruining their beloved refuge, their contractor Arthur Jackson (of The Small Building Company) created piers to perch their cabin like a “treehouse” above the rocky ledge.2
Before they designed and built the cabin, they lived in an Airstream on the property to get to know the land better. Smart! Learn all about the cabin and get the full story by watching the video below.
