Made from scavenged materials, Derek Diedricksen's tiny houses cost just $200 to make. What the little wooden dwellings lack in space, is made up for in style thanks to plenty of decorative detail.

Absolutely prefabulous: residents of Britain's last prefab estate battle to save homes that were built to last only ten years
The first of 500,000 prefab homes went on show in London today 31st April, 1944.
