The Silo Book

We are currently working on the book that will tell the story of the Silo House – from the first drawings to the practical challenges of actually building and transporting it. A story of a dream home coming to life, with all its futuristic inspirations and alternative solutions implemented and then tested by the everyday experience of family life in 13m2. From creating and testing alternative ways of living, to bursting some of the romanticised myths of tiny houses. Photos, drawings, interviews, our biggest successes and the most disappointing mistakes, crazy stories alongside some uncomfortable and embarrassing tales. A small house that became a huge adventure.
