1. Egg-like house
Dai Haifei's egg-like house in Beijing has a solar module but has no kitchen and no toilet. It is just slightly warmer inside than outside in winter.
The 2-metre house with two wheels is made from sack bags on the outside, bamboo splints on the inside and wood chippings and grass seeds in between. This house was built for 6,427 yuan (S$1,300).
After local media publicized his "home," Dai came under enormous pressure and removed it in early December. He lived a total of two months in his "egg house."
