Designer Ryan Frank’s Off-Grid Tiny Home is Built like an Upside-Down Boat.

Designer Ryan Frank wanted a semi-mobile home for a small plot in a “sensitive area”. He thought about yurts and domes, but settled for an open source design he found online” – Kirsten Dirksen of Fair Companies

The house is built like a boat, just upside-down. The lightweight bow shaped frame is covered on the interior with wood boards. The exterior is a simple canvas cover like a yurt. The walls are insulated with sheep’s wool. This combination of materials makes for an extremely breathable house which keeps it dry and comfortable in the humid climate.
