Tiny homes are a huge fad right now. It’s fascinating seeing how much they can really pack into these things. It’s great that people can live a minimalist life in such amazing way.
Anyway, here’s a classy tiny home that you’ve got to see that is motivated NASA’s Apollo Lunar Landers. It was made by boat builder Kurt Hughes of Multihull Designs and to produce it he used boat design tactics. It’s also ultra-light and very portable. It is fireproof as well!
The 250 square foot lunar lander house currently sits somewhere on the banks of the Columbia River in Washington.
Puzzled by the design of the Apollo lunar landers, catamaran-designer Kurt Hughes decided to build one, both as proof of concept and as a very personal vacation home on the banks of the Columbia River.
Hughes told Fair Companies that he’d like to make his original plans available to the public so they can make their own:
Hughes believes his ultra-light tiny home – the 250-square-foot structure weighs just 3,000 pounds – can, and should, be replicated, especially for those building tiny homes on wheels where weight is paramount. He’s working on a manual to show others how to create their own SIP panels.
