Earthships and Cob Houses
Earthship: A home built entirely (or primarily) out of renewable/recyclable materials (like sand, mud, certain types of wood and foam, straw, tires, bottles etc.). Often able to sustain habitability with its own food/water/solar power. Cob Houses: Houses made of cob, a mixture of straw and clay. Material is wet enough to be able to form different shapes, but dry enough to build with.

Straw Bale House
this straw bale home has a sort of old, European feel to it. Like the curtain rod over the door, beam supports & arched windows.

Straw bale construction. The way of the past and of the future!
it's a thought ... dirt cheap....earthbag building is also known as superadobe, flexible-form rammed earth or sandbag construction. Whatever you call it, it is earthquake resistant, flood resistant, hurricane resistant, fire resistant and termite proof ... perhaps a little paint ... perhaps a good technique for a chicken coop ...

EarthBag Homes - you're standing on the building materials...
Earthbag construction. Long sandbags are filled on-site and arranged in layers or as compressed coils. Stabilizers such as cement, lime, or sodium carbonate may be added to an ideal mix of 70% sand, 30% clay. Straw may also be added. Barbed wire between each layer keeps bags from slipping. The earthbags are then plastered over with adobe. Arquitectura en Equilibrio (Architecture in Balance)

Inside Cob House | Cob home with less than perfect walls | Eco-design
This is a home built by Kirsten Klibo in Torup ecoVillage [www.torup-by.dk] in Denmark. She described wanting a home that, "was able to breath had soft shapes and was built with 100% natural materials". It's an untypical design with interior cob walls wrapped with exterior straw bales.

Hubby's idea of a lottery house...Earth sheltering is the architectural practice of using earth against building walls for external thermal mass, to reduce heat loss, and to easily maintain a steady indoor air temperature. Earth sheltering is popular in modern times among advocates of passive solar and sustainable architecture, but has been around for nearly as long as humans have been constructing their own shelter. ... http://naturalbuildingblog.com/2012/03/18/earth-sheltered-homes/

The Buffalino Car is a three wheeled car that has been swapped into a mini RV by designer Cornelius Comanns. The small space has a lot of storage space, water tank, sink that doubles as a basin, stove for cooking and fold down bed.
Mini mobile home and car all in one! :D
tiny bedroom car- amazing~ this would be great at conventions/concerts, etc. Just add a shower tent (tiny to pack) from a camping store and a solar shower + greywater system and you'd be good to go!!
Designer Cornelius Cormanns has skillfully modified a three wheeled Piaggio to create a small camper suitable to meet the requirements of a single individual. The personal base camp is fully equipped with a bed, two seating units, a cooking zone, a basin, storage space, a water tank and a refrigerator to offer the comforts of a home on long journeys. Click for more screenshots, too bad about the plaid design though.
Patio space, but this room would work well in an earthship.

Here’s a relatively similar concept. This is the Polyhedron and it’s a unique garden office that was designed and built by architect Manuel Villa in collaboration with architect Alberto González. It’s a structure that can be found in the backyard of a family home from Bogota, Columbia.

I SUPPOSE THIS STUDIO LOOKS A LITTLE AS THOUGH A SPACESHIP HAS LANDED IN THE GARDEN, HOWEVER I THINK IT IS VERY COOL!! - it would be a great addition to any garden, as long as it was in the correct 'spot' - it could also be very handy as a guest room, if needed!! 💜💜💜
Bogota, Colombia ~ I looked through these "tiny houses" and they look interesting and fun to me. (Perhaps it's the novelty of the idea.) They don't look suitable for families with children, unless you're planning to use the space for the kids to play in the backyard, but then it just seems frivolous and expensive. Maybe it's just not for me in this moment of my life.
now THAT's a studio! #garden ideas
What a great, interesting idea! Guest house? Studio?
