Nowadays, small house always can let people fell comfortable and safety. Some people also love to build a small house by themselves. In addition, there are many different materials for the room. There are tree house, bamboo house and igloo. I have researched three of them.
- A tree house, tree fort or treeshed is a platform or building constructed around, next to or among the trunk or branches of one or more mature trees while above ground level. Tree houses can be used for recreation, work space, habitation, observation or as temporary retreats. Building tree platforms or nests as a shelter from dangers on the ground is a habit of all the great apes, and may have been inherited by humans.
- The process to product is relatively simple
- The required materials always are available and cheap
- It only be constructed in where has trees
- It’s not safety when there is an earthquake
- It can not keep warm in the winter
- BAMBOO MICRO HOMES. Hong Kong studio Affect-T has come up with a proposed solution for the city’s housing crisis – a series of bamboo micro homes that could be installed inside abandoned factory buildings. With a population of over 7 million living within a 400-square-mile radius, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated cities in the world and one of the most expensive place to live. As a result, thousands of residents are left without permanent homes.
- The dry bamboo can drive away insects in summer
- It can be build in any indoor
- The space is not really big
- The required materials are limited in someplace
- An igloo also known as a snow house or snow hut, is a type of shelter built of snow, typically built when the snow can be easily compacted. Although igloos are stereotypically associated with all Inuit, they were traditionally associated with people of Canada‘s Central Arctic and Greenland’s Thule area. Other Inuit people tended to use snow to insulate their houses, which were constructed from whalebone and hides. Snow is used because the air pockets trapped in it make it an insulator. On the outside, temperatures may be as low as −45 °C (−49 °F), but on the inside the temperature may range from −7 °C (19 °F) to 16 °C (61 °F) when warmed by body heat alone.
- The shape can be very beautiful and fancy
- It is warmer than stay in a cold winter night
- The required materials only can be used in somewhere is very cold
- Normally, an igloo can only exist for one season
- It is not easy for DIY
