Honestly, if you don't have kids, this is all you need. Well, except... maybe they make an equally-sized backyard workshop unit! LOL

Ohhh, they're truly modular and you can stack them, too.

I hate barely tolerate little boxes made of ticky-tacky. They have muffled acoustics because of the corners and dust collects on everything because the air won't circulate.

Here's a unit with the same volume ratio the Air Force used in the one-time Republic of South Vietnam. But it doesn't have a flat roof with a piano hinge down the middle.

Some of those newer modular housing projects are quite interesting, but I'm not sure if the average Joe would be willing to pay a premium for a trailer, even though the "sustainability" motto became so widespread.

The tyranny of low expectations.

There was a time when making big spaces disruptively cheap was an expectation. I had to look this one up in a book and DDG only found this one reference online (I know there're more).

That inflatable house looks quite like a sci-fi daydream.

I doubt this is something that people would actually live in? Unless they are out in space or something?

I agree to an extent. Living on that spiral ramp would be weird, like living in the Guggenheim Museum.

I disagree that a tiny box is the optimal shape for a house.

I live in 256 square feet. Musk's place looks palatial in comparison.
