When it’s finished, would you like to spend a night in Chris’s Tsumaniball? …on dry land of course!

This was never about my personal anxiety about a Palo Alto Tsunami, so purchasing a survival craft or boat was never even a consideration. This is about a problem that I feel a connection to and want to try to solve… The plan is for the tsunamiball to be a guestroom in our backyard. Maybe we will put it up on airBNB when we are all done.” – Chris Robinson

Tiny Boat Houses in the Maldive Islands

Here’s another way to build a tiny house… right on the back of an old boat. The Maldive Islands is a tiny country in the Indian Ocean formed by a group of 26 atolls. The average elevation is 4′ 11″ so it would seem natural for these folks to build homes on boats. Looks like an amazing place to visit before the end of the century (if you catch my drift).
