It’s no surprise to anyone that there’s a housing crisis, and a need for more affordable and diverse housing options, but the folks at MicroLife Institute worked hard to do something about it. They teamed up with the city of Clarkson, Georgia — a suburb of Atlanta — to create a “micro pocket neighborhood” with eight homes ranging from 250 to 550 square feet. When they broke ground in 2019, they already had an interest list of 1,500 people!
Eight lucky folks purchased their micro-cottages for between $119,000 and $201,000 — the homes include shared edible and renewable landscaping, and there are solar panels and other “green” initiatives on site. While we can’t go live there, MicroLife Institute is selling plans for their homes, and their website has tons of resources for replicating their initiative in other semi-urban settings where there’s a need for housing.
This is a tiny fisherman cottage in Hvide Sande which is a little town on the west coast of Jutland, Denmark. It’s the country’s fifth largest fishing port, according to Small House Bliss.
The neighborhood seems to be filled with other structures like this. Most of them are just small warehouses that are used to store fishing gear but many of them are not even being used anymore, so some people have decided to turn them into modern tiny homes inspired by the classic old fishing sheds.2 Pretty interesting, right?
