Spanish architectural firm Ensamble Studio has designed “la Trufa” (the Truffle) in collaboration with Ricardo Sanz and Javier Cuesta.
This 270-square-foot one-room dwelling is located in Costa de Morte, in the north of Spain.
to build the Truffle, contractors dug a large hole, compacted the excavated soil around the cavity to form a rough retaining wall, stacked hay bales inside, and poured concrete over them.
Located near near the village of Mevagissey in Cornwall, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, are one of one of Cornwall’s must-visit gardens.
Originally owned by the Tremayne family for over 400 years, the gardens fell into a state of neglect after the first World War when many of the gardeners sadly lost their lives.
It wasn’t until 1990 that the derelict gardens were discovered by Tim Smit (who went on to create Cornwall’s Eden Project) and John Willis, who was a descendant of the Tremayne family.

No there is no typo here, Dereck Diedricksen is actually selling Gypsy Junker, a 24 square-foot tiny house he has made out of shipping pallets, castoff storm windows and a neighbor’s discarded kitchen cabinets!
