This site is about very small, one-person houses that I call
My goal is a house that will allow anyone to have a decent place to live.
Please read my book and my talk to AIA, both posted below.
They will give you background to understand this.

Both BPS.house and VerySmallHouse.com bring you to this site.
BPS No. 1 = 240 Sq Ft
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 my first book on Basic Personal Shelter. The front and back cover is to the left.
I have recently had the book printed. I have posted the book proofs here. If you want a hard copy email me and I will tell you where you can buy it.
