  1. About seven years ago, here in Ireland, my husband and I tried to make an architect understand our desires to build a container home on a plot we were in the process of buying. Both the architect and the planners thought we were mad and in the end we gave up. We bought a small end of terrace cottage, needing a lot of refurbishment and there is enough space in the long narrow back garden to build ourselves a tiny home, disguised as a shed. The powers-that-be are very slow to take on new ideas and they put so much bureaucratic red tape in the way, it puts a lot of people off even considering new concepts in housing. There is a hotel in London made from shipping containers that were manufactured and furnished in China and shipped over to be assembled on site. If a hotel is acceptable to the planning authorities, I can't see why a home isn't. I love this one you've posted, Cocoon Lite 2, very spacious and bright.

  2. This brings to mind the story of Robin Falck and how he came up with Nido. Another example of overcoming local regulations is Echo Living's House on Wheels. It's always fascinating when creativity finds a way to beat the red tape. :-)
