If you really liked this design, you could scale it a bit and make a stack of 3 into a home.
1 is bedroom-closet, 1 office / bathroom-shower, 1 kitchen/laundry.
With larger tubes, the three window sides could all have sliding glass double doors (or just windows) – while the back-end of the three tubes could be all built into a unfied building cube or solar wedge shaped building.
With the addition of a ‘backend’ building – the three tubes could just be 3 bedrooms with beds up against the glass. While the utility of kitchen/bath/living room / office space / laundry all arranged to the buyers liking in the building part.
Hey Chris great ideas- glad you shared! Amazing what you can do with recycled stuff and some creative thinking.
Does anyone have a costing estimates for the construction of each tubo?
Great article! Sewage tubes awesome! Perfect for a tiny house hotel also.
