If you thought houses couldn't get any smaller, you haven't seen where people are working these days. The Tiny House movement, a post-McMansion era trend of sustainable Smurf-sized homes, have spawned an office spin-off. Micro-cubicles, no larger than the size of a full bed in some cases, are on the rise. Some innovative DIY-types with work-from-home lifestyles are scouring junkyards for materials to build mini-workstations in their backyard. Others are ordering pre-fab boxes, the size of tool-sheds, to be delivered to their doorstep. The result is a backyard pod with all the technical capabilities of a skyscraper, and none of the awkward elevator small talk.
