Hm. It's a problem when your tires leak enough air to put the whole thing off level. Better use some jack stands...

There seems to be no shortage of people with computer graphics skills and active imaginations willing to whip up any sort of alternative housing that looks like it might attract attention. My suggestion would be to ignore the most implausible and concentrate on examples that have actually been built and lived in.
