Elevate puts a tiny house on a pedestal
Honolulu, Hawaii-based firm Elevate recently unveiled an eponymous prototype structure that could appeal to fans of tiny houses and treehouses alike. Raised between 8 - 12 ft (2.4 - 3.6 m) on a wooden pedestal, the greenery-covered dwelling features a partially shaded space to park a car underneath, and boasts solar panels and a rainwater collection system.
Elevate is planned in a few different iterations, so its interior floorspace will measure between 250 - 400 sq ft (23 - 37 sq m), depending on what it's going to be used for. Its creators envision it serving as a cafe, drive-thru, office space, and even homeless shelter.
