A young man  transforms a concrete pipe into an amazing cabin residence.

From school buses to shipping containers, we’ve seen some pretty unusual items turned into homes. Our attention was drawn to the video ‘Converting a Concrete Pipe Into an Amazing Cabin Home.’

Could it be a nice place to live? The video has almost 23 million views, so we’re obviously not the only ones that are curious.

Let’s just say that seeing how little it is makes us skeptical.

Space vs. detail
The ‘homeowners’ may lack space and an elaborate starting point, but they do have considerable carpentry skills, which is where this little house really shines.

The framing for what will become the back of the «home,» which will be nearly exclusively window area, is the first step.

The artist’s distinctive style of woodwork, which uses planks of various widths and depths, is the lone exception.

Back there, he installs some privacy (and some curtains will eventually cover the rest).

Although it’s a small room, the amount of effort put into it makes it incredibly unique, and we can see why viewers were so taken with the footage.

A view from within the house shows how the back of the house will look.

It may be little, but it certainly isn’t lacking in natural light!

Wait and you’ll see the front if you think that’s cool.
This is where the true creativity shines (and the exterior has surely been enhanced!).

It’s not a rotating door, despite the fact that it appears to be one at first!

Those slats will truly move, making the door’s opening and closing a thrill to watch.

They remind us in the description that in some cities, space is a problem, and other housing is the only option. This isn’t what comes to mind when we think «low cost» and ‘practical,’ yet the inventor had a vision and executed it flawlessly.

Take a look at this screenshot of the final product: After all, it was once a concrete water pipe with a diameter of slightly over eight feet! It’s now a nice cabin (sans bathroom, of course).

It’s also movable, as you can see!

New tiny dwellings made of concrete pipes?
This creator isn’t the only one who has had this thought!

If this Reddit post is any indication, there are tiny concrete pipe home communities out there.

While it’s more of a sleeping chamber than a home (though it could have running water that we’re not seeing! ), it’s evident the owner takes pride in his area.

He has open windows, plenty of natural light, and everything else a private space should have.
More of the creator’s work and a closer look at the finished result can be seen on his Douyin page.

That’s better woodwork than we see in most big houses! And it just goes to show what humans can accomplish when given enough time and imagination.

From the inside, we can see a lamp on the ceiling (indicating wiring), curtains for privacy (due to the abundance of natural light), and a tall shelf that may be used as a workstation or a bed (and likely serves as both).

Because concrete does not insulate you very well, the biggest challenge appears to be keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
