The Skit: An off-grid, cross-shaped, tiny house for one

•, By Adam Williams
 However, Georgia-based Dachi Papuashvili has produced a charming cross-shaped tiny house concept called the Skit that proves the continuing ability of the useful boxes to inspire.
 The Skit is designed as a one-person home that will be built from two shipping containers, arranged in a cross formation. The residence comprises three very snug floors which measure just 4 sq m (43 sq ft), and a fourth, relatively larger floor, which measures 12 sq m (130 sq ft) and takes up the entire horizontal shipping container.

There's no room for stairs in such a cramped space, so access to each floor is gained by ladder, and the interior includes a bedroom, combined lounge and study, kitchen and dining room, and a prayer room right up at the top of the home. There's also a bathroom with composting toilet and shower, and some storage space. The first floor is wholly reserved as a store for food, captured rainwater, and to house a battery array.
