One of the many architectural responses to the housing crisis created two years ago by Hurricane Katrina was the H.E.L.P. ( Help Every Last Person) emergency shelter, a mini prefab created by designer Carib Daniel Martin.

The term microhomes usually calls to mind the boutique, super-fashionable and somewhat extremist end of sustainable housing. Now two women in Reno, Nevada, USA are making it their business to put the trend to extremely practical use. Pamela Haberman and Kelly Rae of HabeRae Investments Inc. have teamed up to rehab unwanted buildings on existing city lots, and turn them around as beautifully designed, efficient minimalist living spaces.
