So, it made it bearable. I don't know why the idiot chose a double bed for that. I had a single, which I put against the slanted wall, and used that remaining open space for a tiny desk and chair. I put shelves on the walls. And, the other end of the room, along the slanted side, went in deeper, like a crawl space, so I put one of these: Indoor Clothes Hanger/Clothes Rack (FD1-01) - China garment hanger, Yikang in there, for my clothes and a little dresser. The highlight was that one tiny window, just like the room in the pic. Otherwise, the layout and dimensions were basically the same, sans the crawlspace.

    one time I lived in such a slum in Chicago that I saw a rat the size of a rottweiler and when it moved under the the moonlight I saw the glint off it's muscle sinew like it was some sort of panther flexing on a tree during an African safari.
    "i shut the door and in the morning
    it was open
    -the end"




    Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    Hmm it's not so hard plenty of people have built their tiny houses from scratch. As far as not building on a concrete foundation, @kyuuei might want to build on a trailer or something of that nature as some people like building tiny houses that are mobile, and building on a trailer helps to avoid many building codes @kyuuei, I have been reading up on this stuff so if you ever want to chat or talk let me know, I would also hope that you post all about your adventure here, so that people can see what you are going thorough including me.

    I'm trying to get the money together to get:
    either the linden

    Linden

    or the cypress
    Cypress

    last choice being the mica
    Linden


    I like all three, I know im going to get there, you have inspired me once again by posting about this here.

    @kyuuei, have you thought about gabion foundations? Gabions need no other footing except gravel to level off the ground. They are entirely removable and can work like piers. They are also self-installable because they are low tech, the weight of the fill gives them stability and the ability to cope with ground heave. I'm planning to build with gabions for this exact reason, plus I have some large landscape projects near me done with them and the look amazing. Very similar to drystone feature walls.
