Four Lights Tiny House Company WINS With Their ‘Co-Housing for the Antisocial’ Community In Sonoma County.

Weller Tiny Home DesignJay Shafer, founder of the Four Lights Tiny House Company, moved into his first tiny home in 1996 and has been designing and building tiny homes for others since 1999. He’s written books on tiny homes and hosts a traveling camp/workshop where for a fee, Jay will teach participants how to build their own tiny home. All good.

But nothing Mr. Shafer has done so far can compare to the project he’s working on now in Sonoma County California.

47″ Wide Keret House, The World’s Skinniest Home, Is Being Built In Poland.

The Keret House - Warsaw PolandWhy not build a 47″ wide house in between two buildings? You can put some normally vacant space to use, avoid party hosting duties and it’ll also discourage long term house guests. Designed by Jakub Szczesny of Centrala, the only downside we could find in the 47″ wide Keret House design is that a house guest might get trapped on that beanbag chair in the far right corner when the door is left open above the stairs. Actually, that could be a feature. [Good]
