Just Relaxing

Monday, March 28

A friend informed me later that these saucer homes, Futuro Houses, were developed in 1960’s Finland as a vacation home, easy to transport and construct. These prefab houses consisted of 16 elements that were bolted together to form the floor and roof. The concept never really “took off,” as fewer than 100 were ever manufactured. The living area is 50 square meters, perhaps a precursor of the tiny houses that are being built today.

There are several in the United States, as well as in Europe, New Zealand and Australia.
