And p.s. What constitutes a tiny home? I'm pretty generous in my own thoughts - small is good, it doesn't have to be wee to be considered tiny. McMansions don't quality, cottages, unless you are using Newport definitions, do. Bungalows, cabanas, cabins, cabooses, camps, carriage houses, boats, (houseboats included) of a certain size, shanties...they all work.
Today's tiny home will be from an email sent in (thanks, Mr. Plum!) about the Diogene, designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, who is also the builder of The Shard, the largest skyscraper in Europe.

every day living microhome, not that boat interiors are much bigger, sometimes. What I like about this are so many little bits and pieces, oh so practical, to make living better.
I'm not a fan of modern, clean lines. I like funk and clutter and nook and crannies and this place has none of that. What is does have is a water collection system, a compost toilet, a shower, a kitchen, The name Diogene, the Greek philosopher who chose to leave behind luxury and live in poverty...er...not just regular poverty but living in a glass jar sort of poverty, isn't the best of names for conjuring up connotations, but then, he named his skyscraper the Shard, so make up your own conclusions.
You can find out a lot more about this place here. It's pretty brilliant.
