We’ve got to rethink housing, brotherrr!
Sarah Hastings has been living in her 190-square-foot home on wheels, dubbed Rhizhome, on a parcel owned by another couple for the last year.
‘Through my interdisciplinary education at Mount Holyoke College, I brainstormed a way to do this; by graduation I had competed the design and construction of my own mobile tiny home and received high honors in Architectural Studies for my work. ‘I sourced all of my material from salvage yards, craigslist, and local businesses within a 200 mile radius of my building site. ‘Local professionals, friends, and my father contributed their skills and knowledge to my project, which ensured a safe and informed home.’

A grungy NoLibs warehouse slated for adaptive reuse has been put on the market for an asking price of $1.395 million, just months after it received zoning variances which would allow for condo conversion. The developers, Urban Steel LLC, who bought the property for $700K, according to Naked Philly, would stand to make a pretty nice profit from their hard work at zoning meetings.
