Michael Garnier is proud to claim that he lives in the world’s largest tree house. Even though it’s not official, it’s an exciting idea, and seems plausible as the enormous 1,800 sq ft home is supported in the air by seven huge oak trees. The video is featured on LaughingSquid, FairCompanies, and TheBlaze.




Here’s a longer video of more of Michael’s amazing treehouses and wood inventions featured on BoingBoing

As the economic outlook of the country gets worse everyday, people are figuring out ways to pinch every last penny. One of the greatest cost of living expenses is your house, so those who are serious about saving money need not look far. But it’s doubtful that many Americans would go as far to live in a dumpster. Or maybe this is the sad future of America?

We saw the 90 sq ft apartment in Manhattan that went viral last April. That apartment at least had it’s own bathroom and ‘bedroom loft’. Now this even small apartment in Manhattan has gone viral.

It’s only 78 sq ft, and when you’re getting that small every inch counts. He has to share his bathroom, but ‘only’ pay $750 a month. People outside New York are shocked, but some NYers want to live right in the thick of the city with out paying tens, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars a month. This is the only way.

This video posted in May just had a burst of popularity. Mike shows us his Cube eco-home that he is working on. The cube is three by three by three meters-not much bigger than a large storage shed. But if you are one person and are thrifty, the cube home maybe for you. Also, the cube house is very sustainable, using only efficient lighting, heating, and solar panels.
