Even More Architectural Inspirtion

ERM_09_800

The project Ermitage is from the Parisian architecture firm Septembre.

I really like the simple shapes and the bare plywood interior. I might add a thin white wash to the walls. Something to keep them fresh through time. Add a tiny kitchen and bathroom to this design and you might be able to live in it full time. Bravo!

Architectural & Automotive Inspiration – Tiny House Truck

I’ve been daydreaming for awhile about building a tiny house on wheels. A lot of them are built on trailers. Makes sense. This way you can tow it with whatever truck you want. Seems smart to be able to decouple the vehicle and stow the house in a small spot.

But for some reason I’m really fascinated with permanently attaching a tiny house to a flatbed truck. Part of the reason is my love of cars and trucks. I’ve been working on them on and off since I was fourteen. Lots of stories about those days. Another time. Another reason is the sculptural possibilities and the travel nature of it. More RV than shed out back.

You may have noticed I put images up here to keep a record of my inspiration. Here are two more.

I want to put a tiny house version of this awesome church…

Love the curved ceiling! Like an old Roma caravan.

(I’m pretty sure I found the images of this church on the Facebook blog Abandoned, Old & Interesting Places – North Carolina.)

Now to save the money. You could help by giving me a grant to get the truck. 😉
