Could you live in a home the size of a parking space?

•, By Adam Williams
 Dubbed SCADpad, the home in question can fit into a standard-sized car parking space and is expected to cost around US$40,000 to produce.
The SCADpad is quite a simple structure, constructed from wood and set on wheels for easy towing, with individual units taking around one or two months to build. Each SCADpad measures just 2.5 x 4.8 m (8 x 16 ft), which is even narrower than the Imai House and far shorter in length. Though space will obviously be limited, the team mentions that each unit sports a kitchen area, hammock bed, and folding table.

The SCAD team has produced three SCADpads so far, each of which is decked out in a unique color scheme inspired by SCAD's various campuses in Asia, Europe, and North America.

If you don't think that you could "live in a home the size of a parking space," figure out how. That's what the BLM has plans to do with you!
