A Room of One's Own
Well, actually a couple of rooms. As Phuket gets busier and busier one often thinks of that 'shack' on the beach mini escape being what one should really have, preferably out on an island in Phang Nai bay or perhaps up as high as you can go in the hills, would work too.
This week I discovered Prefab Company , a new Thai company that are producing this little gem of a mini house that could be quite perfect dropped on the seashore or high in the hills.
Based on the current container conversion craze this company has made the ceilings a little higher and the box just a little wider. A neat little plan has a spot for everything in just 34 square metres. Prices start at 600,000.00 Thai baht or around 18,000.00 USD.
The exterior is finished in an interesting material composed of sawdust and recycled milk bottles. Happily Thailand is starting to embrace the green theme in the construction industry. All and all a fine addition to the Tiny house revolution.
