I came upon a collection of Tiny House photos today and thought I’d share them for design inspiration. I don’t however have any info on them at this point.

The top one (the green one) is at the COSI science museum in Columbus, OH. It’s not, however, open to tour – you can walk around it, though.
Having seen the COSI one in person (the windows are quite large so you can see inside well). I have to say it is really more of a “green” showcase than a reasonable tiny house. There seemed to be lots of wasted space, and inadequate storage. I say that despite wanting to build my own tiny house and already living in a studio apartment not much bigger than a tumbleweed tiny house.
I guess I was non-plussed by the COSI house. I’d consider it something more like a work of art than a model for a livable tiny house. It does fit in with the whole feel of the COSI museum, though.
i wonder if that third house from the top rolls. it’s like: oh yeah, my kitchen is on the ceiling. hmm… i wonder how they did the toilet?
The rolling house has been featured on here before; it’s shown here: http://www.thetinylife.com/rolling/.
Quote from the page: “Now this is pretty interesting concept, the wood interior is beautiful. Students at the University of Karlsruhe in Germany have developed a rolling house. It allows you to roll the house to alter the orientation of various elements to suit your need of the space. I can’t help thinking that I would feel like a hamster in a hamster ball, but I think the novelty of it would overcome that. I would think you would have to have some stationary part of this though, with storage, there are some things that just could not handle going upside down.”
I read another article about it that mentioned the toilet-it doesn’t go upside-down! Here’s the article: http://www.gizmag.com/roll-it-experimental-house/19371/
