Gawk, point, laugh, take it in, dig it, build it, print it and fold it into a paper swan, whatever….the explanation’s below…
I Sketched this one the other night for possible inclusion in another book down the road- who knows…. I now have a HUGE stack of “unreleased” sketches, cabin and small house design concepts, and more- so its only a matter of time before I do SOMETHING with them- aside from my other new version of “Humble Homes..”- out Fall 2011- via The Lyons Press…(some I might release as a free micro-book/advance, to those who attend our summer workshop). Email me if interested- firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyway, while I’ve recently been sketching some ideas/plans of treehouse-vacation-shelters/studios, and micro ground-cabins to serve as project proposals for THAT Relaxshacks.com 2011 New England (MA) Hands-On Micro-Shelter Workshop, this one’s NOT along those lines (I needed a mental break I suppose). This sketch is part of a series of designs I have waiting in the wings on “Parasitic Dwelling” (tentative/eventual title)- the attaching and squeezing in (on/under/above) of housing in places otherwise thought impossible. Land- they ain’t makin’ any more of it- so who knows, someday, bizarre ideas like this just may have to come into play….

Also- coming soon I believe, via http://tinyhouseblog.com – a guest post/interview I did with Bryan Lowe- a Seattle Shantyboat builder/enthusiast. Bryan has a wealth of knowledge on the subject, and a great guy, so be sure to check it out over in Kent’s world.
