Tiny, spartan, yet fully functional homes

The Micro Compact Home (via BoingBoing) is available anywhere in Europe.

The micro compact home [m-ch] is a lightweight, modular and mobile minimal dwelling for one or two people. Its compact dimensions of 2.6m cube adapt it to a variety of sites and circumstances, and its functioning spaces of sleeping, working – dining, cooking, and hygiene make it suitable for everyday use.
