A process of raising awareness about the importance of a more sustainable, cheap construction (which addresses the problems of homelessness worldwide) seems to be everywhere, but equally durable and comfortable. That’s why we like the example of the American architect Macy Miller .
A native of Idaho, United States, Miller has always wanted to have his own space, but fleeing the high values of income and home mortgage. Inspired by the Do It Yourself movement, Miller devised a construction plan for his Tiny House , from a seven-meter-long, two-and-a-half-meter wide mobile platform.
The result is a compact but cozy and efficient house of 18 square meters and with all the amenities, from lighting, kitchen area and a functional bathroom. The smart design includes new, fully-donated windows as well as recycled wood panelingthroughout the facade.
The construction took about a year and a half to get ready, since Miller chose to do it all alone, with occasional help from his father and boyfriend. It’s hard not to love the result, take a look:
The architect goes on to describe the process of building the house on her blog here .
