Have you ever dreamed of having your own little house in the countryside, just big enough for you and friend or two to hang out and take in the outdoors? 608 Design and BLDG Workshop have just the thing: their new prefab tiny house, cutely called “Bunkie.” Bunkie is a collaborative effort between the two firms , who’ve always admired each other’s work and decided to join forces to come up with new solutions to an old problem: inexpensive, eco-friendly housing.

608 Design and BLDG Workshop decided to use CNC milling technology, which is currently used mostly for furniture, to cut large pieces of the house–saving both materials and construction time. Plans for the house aren’t yet available, but you can get on the project’s mailing list for future updates.

    Hi I like this tiny house is very efficient and nice. I am South African but this tiny house has fascinated me.

    I like the design of this tiny house, but I would use for the walls, neopor (polystyrene) instead of wood, happens to be waterproof, noiseproof and easy to carry, to any place you decide to build the house.

    Loved the glass but nonfunctional for such a small limited space that definitely does not need such large fireplace that will soon and very quickly heat that space. Was disappointed in that you put in bookcases instead a kitchen and bathroom, yet the long table was so important to you guys. No, no make it a cozy but not dominating table. I saw a lost of space in upper area that had no function, what a shame. Put in all the real things that matter especially to a women. This definitely needs a woman\’s perspective. But hey, you got online advertising so who am I to comment. ladydorothyjames@yaho
