Eco Hab Homes – Prefab Tiny Houses

Eco Hab is based in Manchester and focuses on ecological habitation through their tiny prefab homes.

Living in a 4 meter Eco Pod

“Having lived in a 4m diameter pod for some time, I must say it offers a very pleasant, living and work space which requires the minimum of fuel (logs) to maintain a comfortable temperature during the depths of winter, it also has a light filled, natural and organic feel to the building. My first prototype pod is almost self sufficient and is heated using a wood burning stove. The stove heats the water in the copper cylinder which provides the under floor heating. A solar panel also feeds into the copper cylinder. The 1kw wind turbine is connected to four 12 volt batteries and this provides all of the electrical requirements (excluding washing machine and dryer). Rain water is harvested and the 4m Pod gathers 5 litres of water for every millimetre of rainfall. We are now building our first two bedroom 6m dia. Pod which will be the next for evaluation and performance testing. ”

    Eco Hab site useless. Seven bulleted items to click and no visual cues. One item leads to Ask.com. Gee, thanks for the info. To builder/sellers: you are not being well served by listing here.
