I went to an event yesterday at the Shemer Art Gallery called "MicroDwellings and MicroBrews". The event featured several living and studio spaces that were small, affordable, and completely portable. All of them were made from mostly recycled materials. The one above was the largest of those shown and had a whole side made of glass which gave it the feeling of much more space than it really had.
The one below had glass on one end so that it could open up to it's surroundings on just the one end. I kept thinking they might be small but, I know people who live in spaces this small in New York City and they pay a whole lot more than these cost and most of those people have to climb a lot of stairs to get to them.
The microbrews part of this event was fulfilled with a beer garden featuring the beers of several local microbreweries. Not being much of a beer drinker, I only tried one.
