Very nice little backyard home office built by Ecospace available in the UK. It features a nice modern design, ample insulation, double glazed glass windows, and fairly quick setup.
I really wish more American companies would jump in on the tiny house (garden office) bandwagon. There are so many great designs for modern manufactured tiny buildings coming out of the UK, like this one from Garenberg. To top it all off this beautiful little building comes as a kit the owner-builder assembles themselves.
With rumors of an imminent disclosure of the extraterrestrial presence bouncing around the web this week I thought it would be fun to lead off with this alien looking tiny house called the Blob created by architects at dmvA. Inside the hard egg-like shell is a small living space with a bathroom and walls covered in cubby holes for storage of household items. You can also see that it has a door on the side and one end opens like a spaceship hatch.
2-B-2 Architecture has a shelter solution for those working in the extreme conditions of the Arctic. This until will support three people and is moved from site to site.
