French Cube: A Fishing Shack, With Telescope

"Carre d’etoiles: a Tiny, Portable Prefab Cube from France

"Yesterday materialicious discovered the neatest prefab cube and I had the hardest time waiting until today to share it with you.

"The concept of the design is for a vacation getaway for resorts where you can experience a window to the sky, and an island of liberty. You can rent these at several places throughout France and use the included astronomical telescope to penetrate the mysteries of the universe...."

This post includes 10 or 11 photos (the last one is actually a pair of similar pictures) of this U-haul approach to vacation residences.

Judging from the chair in one of the photos, this Carre D'etoiles French Cube is about the size of a large ice-fishing house: the sort of thing folks here in central Minnesota tow out on lakes in winter, and generally put back in storage before the ice melts.

Pictures of the interior show a very efficient, tightly-packed residence, with a lavatory that doubles as a shower and enough room for two people to live - provided neither of them experience claustrophobia.
