Have you been following the craze for tiny houses? Houses that are small, but 100% efficient – lowering utility bills, reducing your footprint on the environment. Ultimately, they are about using what you have – and not needing anything more.
I have been fascinated by this trend and commend the many young couples who are choosing to build in this fashion.
This MIMA house really appealed to me.
It is a 387.5-square-foot home that costs the same as a mid-range car.
MIMA consists of a square post-and-beam structure completely glazed on all sides, subdivided by modular wooden frames. It comes with additional plywood panels that can be placed on the outside of the building, for a replacement of any window by a wall in seconds. Inside, walls can be added, again, in a matter of seconds, so a subdivided space can be replaced by an open space or vice versa.
You can dramatically change the look of the inside by a simple wall rotation.
