The Cube

OK everyone, this is my first real go at making something, so go easy....

The Cube, or more specifically, The Cube06 (6th version I've come up with), is a small, relatively easy compact home. It's sort of semi two level, a size I'd say would be easy to live in for two people. IKEA is your best friend here, as space efficient furniture would take care of storage needs, while ample room for living, sleeping and generally staying alive. What do you think???


  1. Love it, Andrew! Before we had kids, I used to fantasise about simplifying my life to the extent that I could be happy in a small space, and something exactly like you've created would fit the bill perfectly.

    I constantly struggle between wanting to live a simple, clean, tidy, organised, minimal, free life, and the constant tendency to accumulate paraphernalia that seems like such a good idea at the time...

    But as they say, life is a journey, not a destination, and at the moment I'm doing a reasonable job of "pruning back" to more quality and less quantity. Then perhaps one day I can live in my perfectly formed, minimalist, simple, yet beautiful house. :)

  2. I see I'm really late here :p ...Nice job. I also want to simplify my life
    and keep thinking beds/bedrooms are a waste of space. I'd rather have a large airy daytime space than a separate bedroom but of course a comfortable place to rest is important. I'm thinking hydraulics. :) Have you refined your plans or built this house?
