In an attempt to save money on rent Dai Haifei, a 24-year-old architect in Beijing has constructed a mobile egg-shaped home from bamboo, wood and grass seed.
He moved the house steps away from his office where he would stay until midnight before going to sleep inside the “egg”. There’s only one bed, a water tank and a lamp inside the house.
“I feel good living here though it’s simple, and a bit cold sometimes, what important for me, is – it saves me a lot of money!” Dai told a reporter.
