    This guy's house cost slightly more to build and ship than one month's rent for my house.

      Egg House Beijing, China Architect Dai Haifei was tired of high rents. So the recent grad built this egg house to stick it to the man and live rent-free. The eco-friendly apartment is made of sacks filled with wood chippings and grass seeds (which will grow to insulate the egg) on a bamboo frame.

      Makeshift Mini-Homes - The Dai Haifei 'Egg House' is a Product of Innovation and Desperation (GALLERY)

      The Egg House in Beijing, China - probably the smallest home we've seen. And look, it's even green!

    • Naja Abelsen

      The Dai Haifei ‘Egg House’ is an eco-conscious structure sitting at 6 feet high. This puny living space is the product of architecture student Dai Haifei’s struggle (and fail) to find a rental price in Beijing, China that suits him. This makeshift mini-home was handcrafted by Haifei, consisting completely of bamboo, wood chippings and grass seed that Dai Haifei expects to bloom and flourish in the spring. It was since that considered illegal and towed away, a shame!
