Vancouver Island (BC) - John Stewart says the future is small and he wants you to live in it. Twelve3 is a Vancouver Island based company specializing in 123 or 103 micro homes and are high-tech and affordable. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it? Not so!

"When I started designing the cube," John told Small House Style "a conscious decision was made to make it comfortable and practical. Somewhere you could be happy to invite friends over to, somewhere you would be proud of. A home, not just shelter."
