It will be hard for the micro-units coming to DC to match the innovation of a new home out west.

Architect Christoph Kaiser purchased an old grain silo from a Kansas farmer, transported it to Phoenix, Arizona and spent two years turning it into a home for he and his wife.

The home spreads out over 340 square feet, with a bedroom loft located on top of a kitchen and small living area. The two spaces are connected by a spiral staircase. Kaiser created a skylight at the top of the silo, as well as a custom sliding door that makes indoor/outdoor living doable.
