It has been built and pictures are shown below. It is discussed in detail in my first book --Basic Personal Shelter, A Housing Alternative. It is posted on this site for
you to read.
BPS No. 2 = 144 Sq Ft
It has not been built yet. Sketches for it are shown below. It is important because the BPS will need to be very small to be affordable to the most people. I know BPS No. 1 is livable at 240 sf, but I need to find out if a smaller one will work too. It will be discussed in my second book -- Basic Personal Shelter as Mass Personal Housing, which I have just begun.
This is BPS No. 1.
It proved to me that 240 sq ft is livable.
The story of this house is detailed in the book.
Below are floor plan and photos of it.

Article 2017 about Jeff and his 240 sf BPS - Picture good, type difficult to read.
Inside the Main Room:
Kitchen is to the right.
Bathroom is behind kitchen to the left.
There is no built-in furniture. Each person sets up the main room to live in as they see fit.
This is not a "tiny house". This is a small house. The rooms are normal size. Just fewer of them.
BPS No. 2 is 144 sq ft and based on the sketches below.
