This “Fold-A-Mansion,” or “FAM” for short, is the amazing design of architect Larry Windes. He built the expanding, fold-out home on a trailer in Costa Rica, where it’s available for short-term rentals or for sale (without the land).
When unfolded, the small home boasts a ground-floor and upstairs bedroom. Because of the lifted roof, you can stand upright in the loft! There’s a functioning kitchen and luxurious bathroom as well. You can buy it for $130,000. What do you think of this innovative design?
This is Roberta’s small cottage in San Isidro de El General, Costa Rica.
She bought the house sight unseen, later remodeled it, and has been living there since 2015. Not long after settling in, she built a tiny house (casita or ‘cabina’) on the property as well! She now rents that out on Airbnb for additional income. You can learn about her casita and how it was built, on this post.
