This tiny house is simply a rectangle, but it shows what can be done with such a simple geometric structure. The fortunate thing about a simple rectangle is that it is the least expensive. As for the lack of an elevated support, I live in a desert environment and tend to think in those terms. Here, many houses are built on slabs without any thought to a basement, or an attic for that matter. Also, a flat roof has no possibility of collapse due to snow. In future, designs may include at least shed roofs, with the occasional gabled roof along the lines of American Mid-Century Modern.

Although this house looks ample in size, the indoor square footage is only 239. The outdoors is used as a major extension to the roominess of the overall design. In fact, in such a house, in the right environment, the temptation would be to spend considerable hours outside.
