Designers and architects alike are often faced with the task of conceiving small spaces to live in comfortably; enter Jon Salerno and his Habitat. A unique design as far as micro-homes go, Habitat looks like a cubic water tank.

Stretching only 100 feet, Jon Salerno's Habitat nevertheless offers all the basic comforts, such as a lofted bed, kitchen and space for eating, plumbing, storage and shelves. Powered by solar panels, it also comes with an electric vehicle that intriguingly acts as the first floor when parked.

By incorporating the car in his design, Jon Salerno has envisioned a home that is extremely unique. In the "living room," the car's seats swivel around so sitters can face each other more comfortably. Stats for Auto-Inclusive Micro-Homes Trending: Older & Average
