Bicycle Powered Tiny Home for $150 or Less

I have seen tiny houses built by nine year olds, and I have seen tiny houses built by churches, but this guy takes tiny houses to a whole new level.

These bicycle houses can go anywhere. You can live debt free, and you can travel from homestead to homestead. With this house, you have the ability to work for yourself. You have the ability to work anywhere you want. You can stay for as long a time or short a time as you want. This house is so versatile, that you can do almost anything.

Micro-shelters are the homes of the next generation. They are not only for the homeless, but individuals who want complete freedom. This would be the perfect home for the newly on their own young adult. Rent free and wifi ready. What else do you need?

With the ability to live on farms that are growing food, or park your bike somewhere in the city, this lifestyle of living in your traveling home, will change the future for the next generation. Making it that much easier to be mobile to travel to locations that allow collaborating environments, will benefit the future like we never imagined. You can travel from collaborative work space to collaborative work space. How often do people not take a job due to moving expenses? That time is no longer.

The Next Generation innovation is well on it’s way.

Paul Elkins fell for micro-camping in 2002 when he toured the country in his cabover “stealth camper”. Sure he could make something more affordable, this year he began building a nomadic micro-shelter based on the Airstream design.

Using 4 recycled fluted-plastic campaign signs from a recent election, a $20 secondhand bike, 6 pine boards ($1 at Home Depot), screws, Duct tape and zip ties, he built his latest micro mobile shelter for only $150.

Calling it a “micro Airstream bike camper”, it’s a 60-pound “home away from home”, complete with butane stove, bread-pan sink, counter, food storage shelving, clothes-storage bins, LED lighting, bed, windows, pee jug, bubble insulation, stereo with MP3 player, and a skylight made out of a 1 gallon plastic tub.
