NASA Lunar Lander Home
Catamaran boat designer Kurt Hughes has always been fascinated by the NASA Apollo lunar landers, so what better tribute than by building a tiny home shaped like one? That’s exactly what he did for his personal vacation home on the banks of the Columbia River. Since he designs and builds boats for a living, he managed to avoid nail framing by creating his own carbon-fiber structural insulated panels (SIPs) using “Ziploc Space Bags”. Read more for a video and additional information.

Ziploc Space Bags is basically a vacuum-bagged plywood and epoxy mix that is light enough to be transported from his Seattle backyard to the riverfront resort using just his pickup truck. This means his 250-square-foot home weighs in at just 3,000 pounds, and he’s currently working on a manual to show others how to create their own SIP panels.
