Australian man builds micro house out of scrap

In this ever populating world, everyone wants to have own his/her dream home, but saving the requisite money has become a tough task for current generations. You can see people finding unique ways to make accommodations; some prefer living simple, secluded life in recycled houses such as this colorful Tibetan treehouse, while micro mobile homes are also a growing trend nowadays. A house is not ranked through its size, but it purely depends on personal visions of its residents.

You can take the example of Australia-based Julian Morgans, online editor for Vice magazine, who has built a micro house from unused wood boards and other things collected from an old industrial area dump. After finding it too tough to arrange the mouth-slamming amount for buying a medium house in Melbourne, he arrived on this project idea to build a house out of scraps.

Julian made a tiny cottage having white country cottage interiors and peaked metal roof. The interiors furnished with a table, bed, flower pots, storage unit, tabletop lighting and a nice nature painting present it like 1970’s room, and are perfect for a person to live in. He hosted a lunch for his parents and spent an evening with one of his friend at this micro house featuring a natural green porch of grass. To add some celebrity-twist, he agreed on famous rapper Vanilla Ice to review this tiny dwelling.


This wooden structure is built by connecting ragged wooden pieces, and looks sturdy to withstand chilling summer time, although hard-hitting survival in winters is also obvious. If he would have added some measures for insulation, then it could be represented as a real home. However, this unique wooden home project sets a good example for people who want to build houses from recycled materials.
