Hermit House: The Open Source DIY Micro-House You Can Design for Free With a Simple App, from SolidSmack Video here.

Living in 150 square feet doesn’t sound appealing to a lot of people, but for ultra-minimalists and those looking to pinch their pennies, downsizing their living space has been a liberating experience according to recent news stories over the past few years. With the rise of such couch-surfing/house rental sites such as AirBnB, micro-houses have also given property owners a way of turning a pretty penny with minimal upfront costs and zoning constraints.

Similar to other micro-home floor plans, the interior is designed as a ‘spacious’ multipurpose open room with that can be modded to however a user sees fit.

Designers Daniel Venneman and Mark van der Net designed the Hermit House for a University project with the motto “Life Unplugged” as an inspiration. Their goal?

Starting with a template that features an open room and a deck, a user has eight different options and various add-ons to choose from for their final design. Once inside of the app, a user can specify the open-structure’s entrance and back height and width, depth, segment size and roof angle….

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
