This is the story of a father and son duo who designed and built quite an amazing transforming CNC minimalist tiny cabin.

I’ve been wanting to talk about open source housing for a while now which is something you’ve probably never heard of yet.
For a while I’ve known that sometime in the near future housing is going to drastically change thanks to the internet and technology. When I put together this post last year is when I truly realized it.
