Pods I like

A couple of years ago it ended up that Dwell and ReadyMade did issues on modular or small housing just about at the same time. These are links from those articles and other related things I've found:

  • The Pod: These cardboard houses came from Icosa Village, which doesn't seem to have a web presence right now. I'm linking to the WorldChanging story on them.
  • Tiny House on Wheels: Building a tiny house on wheels allows one to register it as a trailer. Here's a video tour of one such house, the woman who built it, and an entertaining visit to a new-built home neighborhood.
  • fabprefab: modern prefab houses (have a list of tiny houses under OtherFab)

NotSoBigLiving is the story of a woman inspired by Sarah Susanka, Bill McKibben, Airstreams, Tumbleweed houses, Mennonites, Jimmy Carter, hippies, survivalists, Anasazi, Pema Chodron and Joko Beck, Scott Peck, Buckminster Fuller, and Al Gore to see what she can do to reduce her carbon footprint in her mid-80's suburban townhome. Strategies include roommates, alternative travel, organic eating, planting a victory garden, mindfulness, and a belly full of laughter.
