Manufacture of towable tiny cycle-houses for local Homeless people.

by Justin James in Bristol, England, United Kingdom

In 2019 I built a prototype towable tiny cycle-house with a view to putting them into production and giving them to Homeless  people who can use them. (Essentially a long, covered bike trailer for sleeping in.)
They're designed to be as lightweight as possible, comfortable, practical, well insulated, waterproof and warm.
The prototype was intended to see if the space was viable for living in, I tested this extensively and it works well. (As it was never intended to move I built this from timber.)
I'd like to take this to the next step and have a Mark2 version properly designed and built by an engineer which works with lightweight materials and is fully portable.
This Crowdfunder is to raise cash to get this done and tested.

(Photos of the prototype, design sketches and notes will be uploaded soon. In the meantime have a look at the video during the build process last April.)

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £70 million for bright ideas and good causes.
