Are rooftop tiny houses becoming a trend in big cities? That might be a far stretch, but it’s an idea that’s slowly been catching on because if you’re in a city, there’s just no place for a tiny house on wheels, so rooftops could be an option for some. And it’s not the first time something kind of like this has been done.

That’s what el Sindicato Arquitectura did with its Casa Parasito project located in Ecuador’s capital Quito. What do you think of the idea of tiny homes being built on the rooftops of buildings? Is it a good idea or a bad idea? Why? Would you ever consider this if it were an affordable housing option?

Sylvie bought a tiny house to have a permanent, full-time home for her and her teenage daughter.

Living tiny gives her more financial freedom. Her house will be paid for in 10 years, and she already has more flexibility to travel and spend time doing what she loves. She also hopes that her new minimalist lifestyle will allow her to help save money for her daughter’s studies when the time comes.

These are Tiny Houses for the 2018 Winter Olympics.

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.
