Here we can take a look at a 252sq ft tiny house that Chris Haynes built out on 9 acres of land in Royalston, Massachusetts. And yes, this one is NOT on wheels. It’s built on a regular foundation.

Have a minimum livable area of 150 square feet. And have 2 separate forms of egress. Otherwise, mostly standard building code enforcement's apply. The outside is finished with a hardy plank

They then discovered that most prefab/modular homes would not work for them as they were too big to transport to the location they had selected, surrounded by redwoods (Santa Cruz Mountains). This made them research shipping container homes. An 8ft wide shipping container would work perfect. So they visited the Port of Oakland, and found exactly what they needed.

Take a tour of this beautiful prefab structure from Danish company VIPP. VIPP are a well known name in the world of design and are the creator of the iconic wastebasket back in 1939. This trash bin now sits on display in the MOMA. The mechanical properties of this famous appliance have been used to inspire the design of the prefab shelter.

This makes a very comfortable
