The Micro Backyard Home

This is a 16×16 micro house that fits comfortably in a small backyard. Since the wall is Lincoln Block’s experimental 3″ wall block, the actual square footage inside is slightly larger than normal. It’s a 1.5 story home leaving enough space for a loft above and a living area below. With a getaway like this you can spend countless hours on your projects, or host company in style with their own private guest house. Buildings this small don’t typically require the same stringent regulatory certifications as larger buildings, allowing you the freedom to choose exactly what design you want and finish your building in record time thanks to Lincoln Block.  It’s just like building with toy blocks! You can have a long lasting, beautiful, comfortable, and truly economical and environmentally friendly home. It’s minimalist but still modern and awesome to see!
