Real estate broker Jeff White dreamed of transforming used shipping containers into affordable housing. Laughed at by the first architects he approached, he began to work on his concept using a 40-foot-long, 9-foot-6-inches-tall and 8-foot-wide container in the driveway of his Salt Lake City (Utah) home. Being "busted" by a city inspector became the needed publicity for his project and soon after the Salt Lake's mayor was behind him and helped to ease the permits and inspections process. After two years of transformation (including plans, groundwork and permits), what began as two forty-foot high cube containers is now a light and airy 672-square-foot house. It's not dirt cheap- the Sarah House (named for a San Francisco homeless woman whose makeshift home inspired White) is currently on the market for $135,000 (and only to low-income buyers)-, but that price includes a lot of hidden costs. "I spent 40 thousand dollars for the lot and then the infrastructure underneath it, getting the sewer, water lines, probably an additional 25 thousand dollars. So you can see where I'm at, the house is still coming in at 55 to 60 thousand dollars." White thinks with time and economies of scale, he can bring the costs down.

This stunning small home has been constructed using tiny house design principles as part of a new suburban subdivision in Wanaka New Zealand. At 33 square meters (355 square feet) it's a very compact home and is filled with super clever tiny house and small space design ideas. Become a Living Big Patron: https://www.patreon.com/livingbig Constructed from structurally insulated panels or SIPs, this tiny house is well insulated, modern and constructed from very high quality materials. https://www.livingbiginatinyhouse.com/tiny-house-suburban-subdivision/ Building a house on foundations using the tiny house concept has allowed Will and Jen to create a home which is the best of both worlds. It's streamlined to the couples needs, takes up a very small footprint and has all the advantages of a tiny house, yet it's also not restricted to the standard tiny house dimensions and road-travel limitations, allowing the small home to be much higher and a bit wider than a conventional tiny house. It also means they haven't had to take weight into consideration in their build. I hope you enjoy this weeks episode!
