When you hear the word Hobbit, immediately you think small, but I didn’t think this small. The Hobbit Hole is a “miniscule place of peace” and they aren’t kidding, this house is a whopping 4 feet tall. You enter through a small door and make the curve in what looks like a burrow. In addition he has made a bath hut and a sauna on the 2 acres that he leases for $100 a year!
This is an interesting one, talk about minimalist! This cube is 8 feet cubed and sits on wheels so that the owner can rotate the space in order to align with them moon. The owner, Liu Ming, is well known for feng shui and hosts many classes in his loft. The rolling house can be moved to the corner and out of the way to make space for people who come to learn. The wood is simple plywood made from Ash.
Today we have an interesting post of an old boat that has been reclaimed into a floating house. This Old Boat is a project by John Kolsun and he has posted some photos at our Facebook Page.

I know my project will have to be different from others. Up until this point I have not given any thought of recycling, reusing, reclaiming, and repurposing building materials to create my project. Cutting cost is a necessity, I’ll seek out and acquire building materials from current construction projects, soon-to-be demolished homes, and people’s “junk piles.” Yup, for the project to move forward I would have to scavenge old doors, windows, fixtures, etc.
