Living Structures

Living Structures - There are some interesting ideas about use of space and structures to live in in this book from the 1974. Worth exploring the thoughts, if not the construction techniques. Nancy and I toy with the idea of custom building a camping trailer/RV and I've been looking at such things for creature use of space. Also, the interface to the online book works well on my large screen system,

On the idea of building campers/etc, have you ever looked at Tiny Yellow House?

Enjoyed those.. Thanks. We're thinking more in terms of a 20-22 foot Airstream trailer turned into something a bit more stylish.

Yeah, I couldn't imagine vacationing in one of the tiny yellow house projects, however there are some neat ideas for space saving and such. Not that these would work for an airstream, but maybe there's some ideas you could get from space saving furniture manufacturers too.

Awesome design and execution. the bed/desk and the lift up sofa were good designs.
