Proposed site for the Smallest Livable House in LA : Designed for one person to live within
150 Square feet
The foundation was designed with special fabricated steel anchoring systems to withstand a 7.0 point Magnitude Earthquake.
I designed and built this house by myself over 2 1/2 years. I developed the square cone roof during my time Cranbrook Art Academy for MA in architecture.
14'-0 to the top of the roof

The roof took 3 layers of 1/2" particleboard because it's flexibly to bent over the surface rounded surface square cone roof
screwed down with 1" 5/8 stainless steel screws
This structural roof connection improves the wind resistance and the angle of the roof
The building is completely screwed together for stability.
The toilet and sink floor have a 10% pitch to the center drain for the shower area.
The mirror designed to give 4 way image of the person using it, which allows you to see around back side of a person's head.
Showing the nature of the design for the windows and skylight
There is a two way ceiling fan that can draw or pull air up or down. The windows on the right can draw cold air from the canopy of two avocado trees outside of the house
This view shows the loft bed with ladder/stairs on the left where you will have two windows in the bedroom area
The skylight is set in such a way that it will not capture rain fall to sit on the frame of the skylight.
