The Tricycle House is a dream come true for anyone who imagined living life like a snail, with a home to crawl into wherever you happen to land at the end of the day. It comes from China (which means that it was designed by the real actual communists at the People’s Architecture Office and People’s Industrial Design Office), and it’s basically a tiny house attached to a bicycle.

There are all sort of permutations available. You can opt for inside features like a kitchen, a bathroom, or a living area with transformable furniture. There’s also an outdoor garden option. In theory, you could have a whole big compound. But you need a family big enough and strong enough to bike it all around. Or, alternately, you have to develop really, really awesome leg muscles.
