Just in time for summer….
Time To Say Goodnight!
Talk about making anyplace you land your home! Here is one of the most unique living spaces I have ever seen!
I found this story on Huffington Post, which is always full of fascinating and unique stories of this wacky world, like this!
Here is how it is explained on Huffington Post: “Ecocapsule is a tiny, 86 square-foot living capsule that, as soon as next year, will enable owners to live virtually anywhere. Each mobile pod comes with sleeping space for two, a mini kitchen, a fully functional toilet and shower, storage space, a desk and two windows.”
These incredibly cute – and incredibly small – pods are currently in pre-production, so you can’t buy your own “weekend getaway home” just yet! Here’s what really makes them self-sufficient: they harvest their own rainwater and remove all bacteria, so you have your own water supply! They can also power themselves using the sun and wind!
I’m Ready To Buy Right Now!
Unfortunately, there are none for sale yet, and no final price has been set, but I am ready to invest! The Slovakia-based Nice Architects estimate that it will cost about $2,400 to have a pod shipped to the US.
Meet The Drop XL!
And I need to also show you the “DROP XL”, which calls itself “a large version of the organically-shaped removable hotel suit DROP eco-hotel. The DROP modules are part of the large emerging trend in the field of modular microarchitecture, suitable for being placed wherever the heart desires and the land permits!”

Of course all of this reminds me of another type of incredible getaway:

Not to be mean, but we all know that Brando was a bit heavier late in life – and I only say that because this house might have been tough for him:

I love how people have found ingenious ways to make use of “available space”. Perhaps the best example is this:
Yes, don;t let living in a skyscraper keep you from doing some laps in your own pool! Read all about these amazing “skyscraper pools” here:
