Tiny homes to a cabin disguised as a rock

From supersized tiny homes to a cabin disguised as a rock, we’ve covered some unusual abodes here at Gizmag. The recently-completed Steampunk Adventure Home, by Ogden, Utah-based Maximus Extreme Living Solutions, is just as left-of-field, and the Tiny living, Steampunk style1tough towable home highlights the impressive variety of the small living movement with its Steampunk-inspired detailing.
Designed by Maximus Extreme Living Solutions CEO Stew MacInnes for a local resident and her young son, Steampunk Adventure Home rests on a road-legal custom triple axle heavy duty trailer that’s towable with a suitably large car or truck. The home is as hardy as it looks, and MacInnes told us that the Raycore SIP’s (Structural Insulated Panels) used for framing the home are rated to tackle temperature swings fromTiny living, Steampunk style2 -45 to 65º C (-50 to 150º F).

The Steampunk Adventure Home measures 7.3 x 4.2 x 2.6 m (24 x 13.8 x 8.6 ft), and has a total floorspace of 31 sq m (340 sq ft), including lofts. The interior layout comprises a galley kitchen with concrete counter tops in the center and two loft-based sleeping areas that are accessed by stairs. The lounge area is nearest the front door, and the bathroom lies at the far side of the home. The bathroom features a small metal tub and sink, plus a composting toilet. A Mitsubishi HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) unit tackles both heating and cooling, and electricity comes from a hookup.
