Pay phone booth repurposed as a tiny library – a “take a book, leave a book” little library. 

I LOVE THIS – a creative reuse and community win!

This micro-library sits in Houston, Texas, outside local coffee house Black Hole – with a laundromat next door – near the University of St. Thomas and Houston’s Museum District.

Repurposed Horse Trailer in Taylors Mistake, New Zealand.

Contributed by Chris Stead

“The Truck” (as I refer to it) is a modified horse transporter. It’s surrounded by multi-million dollar homes, but fits in just as well as the homes around it. In addition to the truck itself (which boasts 3 sleeping areas, galley kitchen, bathroom and a lounge) I have built a separate sleepout, connected by wooden decking and stone paths. I live there year-round and love it!

It sits obviously in a coastal position in the South Island of New Zealand in an area known as Taylors Mistake — so named after the skipper of a ship in the 1800s mistook a gap between two headlands as being the entrance to the nearby Lyttelton Harbour and beached his ship there.
