   FEATURES   

​Here are some of the many features that will be demonstrated in this working prototype of a self-powered tiny house on wheels that is affordable, eco, mobile, modular, versatile, as well as off-road and off-the-grid, and essentially is a self-contained living biome.

This tiny house may be parked anywhere without the need for a hookup. You may even stop in a national park in, say, a dried-up dusty river bed in the desert with all the mod-cons and functionality of a normal suburban house + a whole lot more.

 

How many Tiny Houses can do all that?

BOOM (Mic drop).

 

So, anyway here is snippet of what it will do . . .
 

  • Double-size bed folds up into a generous day lounge sofa.

We see outcomes in terms of affordable housing, environmental sustainability, scalable cohousing & communities, off-grid living, as well as reducing the impact on the planet by enabling more efficient infill housing and land sharing, enabling mobile and nomadic living.

This may ultimately restore a sense of personal interconnection, immediacy, intimacy, and community for people which may also lead to a more meaningful way of life.
