Gareth Roberts and Ted Allsopp make up Hummingbird Micro Homes of Fernie, BC. They wanted to see what kind of home could be hitched on a trailer and be moved around and then plunked down somewhere in the wilderness. Read what Roberts says about living in own micro home.

Roberts has been living in a 500-square-foot house he built for his young family of four. “You spend more time together as a family because you’re in each others faces pretty much all day,” he said. “Most people live in somebody else’s idea of a home.”

Portable micro home dimensions are limited by B.C. ministry of transport trailer regulations (13’6” high by 8’6” wide) and such givens as standard fridge sizes.

Would a concept like these micro homes work in Vancouver? Maybe multiple micro homes on a single lot with a shared yard?  I’m not sure people in the city are ready for homes like this, but it’s a creative made in British Columbia solution.
