WHERE: Deutschland, und international locations

SIZE: About 100 square feet, depending on the model
Fritz! Ernst! The Future is here!
It’s a childhood dream, all grown up: a mod, beyond-cool treehouse. Now you can live amongst the leaves in one of Baumraum‘s prefabricated treehouses, which come equipped with bunks and trunks, light and heat, and even the tools to make meals. Though the houses come sans toilets and showers, and are therefore not quite move-in ready, they could make a great addition to, say, a piece of land hooked up to an outhouse. Who needs anything else?
Okay, so maybe one of these feats of arboreal architecture couldn’t serve as a primary residence. But they are nonetheless artful, and so Small, too. Win-win.

Want a weeHouse? Now through November 1, you can get the 350-square-foot, solar-powered model for just $99K ($109K for states west of Colorado). Kinda expensive per square foot, but so clean-lined and (pretty) clean-running. All you need is a foundation, septic, and water hookups. Solar power kit supplied by Fusion Modular.
I love these little boxes. Don’t you?
