A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

But this looks more like a rabbit hutch.

I don't think anybody assessed the 'drunk' quotient when working on the bed, toilet, or the stairs

Dont cook kippers before you go to bed ...the stench would keep you awake ..
Same goes for using the potty after a madras ..
Worst of all ...no where to fit your dish farm ..

I have a better Idea ..
Start resticting how many kids couples can have like China .(preferably by education).
Lets get the population under control..
No doubt this wont be popular but it needs to done..
I have no kids that I am aware of ...so made my contribution already.

..sits back and waits for the flak...

The villagers here refer to my gaff as The Tardis as it is unprepossessing on the outside, but fairly sizeable within.

What the creator says about it:

Dr Page says he incorporated all the latest green technology to show how people could live in a carbon neutral way without having to make sacrifices.

Not including space, comfort, dignity, etc.?

It's just a static caravan with an upstairs really, so it's not a new idea, just one rehashed to fit in a smaller space to create yet more high-population concentration areas, I don't think it'll take off, though that said, new build houses do seem to be getting smaller and smaller, so, who knows... :confused

Why not just put a blue portaloo on its side and hang a hammock inside.


Take some LSD and you will soon be :eek: whizzing along in time and space . . .

I would quite happily live in something like that, especially if it was placed on a nice piece of land in the country.

OpenBox X5 on a 1 meter motorized dish.

Why not go the "Sea/Land" route?

Nice setups with these.

Or go back to the old ways, Pyramids were the craze a few millennia back, with a bit of slave labor and some sea/land containers you could get some nice dense housing setups.
