Egg House

This is a pretty neat house, built by Daihai Fei, age 24, he did it for only $960 US dollars.  He had moved to Beijing to pursue his college degree, but after graduating he found to get work, he must stay in the city, but he couldn’t afford rent.  The house is mobile and covered with bags of dirt and grass seeds.  Daihai Fei hopes that the seed will take and grow to fully encase his egg in grass, making it more weather resistant.

His egg house is now located across the street from his work, so commute is a 30 second walk.  I was surprised that you could pull this off in Beijing, I would think in a modern city they wouldn’t allow it.  But Daihai Fei has become something of a local legend, so perhaps winning the hearts of people has allowed him to do this.  After living in his egg house for two months Daihai Fei feel that his life has improved dramatically since living in his egg house.

PACO Tiny House

This interesting Micro House is an interesting approach to the needs of day to day life.  Taking space utilization to an extreme, the designers have taken very practical approaches to meeting the needs of the resident.

From the outside, the micro compact Paco House is a tiny cube, measuring three meters square. The contemporary prefab home boasts a minimal white facade devoid of details, yet it’s oddly intriguing. Designed with space efficiency in mind, Paco House was created with a minimal footprint – both physically and environmentally speaking – in order to blend into its environment with little impact to its surroundings. Because of its small dimensions, Paco doesn’t require an infrastructure. Eighty per cent of the home is manufactured in a plant, allowing for customization to the home and virtually endless possibilities for geographic placement. Paco House packs alternative energies into its small but oh-so-sweet design. This eco-friendly self-contained accommodation features solar and wind energy, water recycling and a biodegradable toilet.
