If you are a space fan, you gonna love this home! This tiny home is inspired by lunar landers and it looks very familiar. This home was built as a tiny weekend retreat and can be placed anywhere you like. But just imagine – living in a spaceship!

Reaching 9 feet above ground, this tiny abode looks as though it came from out of space and landed on the banks of the Columbia river, of which it is settled. Hence it comes as no surprise that architect Kurt Hughes modelled the hexagon-shaped white hut after a lunar lander – an iconic spacecraft used during the historic apollo 11 landing. Hughes applies his thirty years experience as a boat designer to resolve challenges of creating such a compact space, and he totally succeeds in that.

Elevated by three steel beams a staircase offers an entry point into the 250-square-foot home which comprises an open floor plan lit by a large geodesic dome skylight. Inside the home resembles a spaceship no less than outside. A kitchen with stainless steel appliances occupies a small space near to a dining area which is situated by a window overlooking the river and the hillside. Meanwhile a retro-styled mirror and semi-spherical basin styles a wash area just off the bathroom. A small ladder leads below deck where a bed sleeping two people is neatly positioned. Upstairs, a small outdoor deck offers a space to look upon the surrounding wildlife. Additional lights here and there are presented with LEDs and wall lights like those that you may see in the ships. Look at the pics of this unique home below and get inspired!
