Stroll the banks of the Columbia River in central Washington and you’re forgiven for thinking, at least for a second, that you’re on the surface of the moon. No, it’s not because the riverbank has gone to shit; it’s because Kurt Hughes lives there and so does his lunar lander-inspired tiny home. The 250-square-foot abode is hexagonal in shape and all NASA in vibe. There’s a bedroom on the lower level, a kitchen formed of hard lines, and even a dining room table next to a portal that looks out on the river to remind you you’re still on Earth. Hughes leveraged his decades of experience designing boats to nail the floor plan and overall structure, and it’s hard to argue with the results. If we tried the same, it would look like a prop in an elementary school play.
