While tiny-house-on-wheels-shells have been around for a long time, the NIDUS concept of a modular foundation home shell is something new — and it’s a great way to save money on housing since you DIY the entire interior of the home. These shells are built in modular pieces that are then transported and assembled on-site.
Their “Dove” model is a true tiny home at only 230 square feet, and it starts at just $17,500 for the shell. Plumbing, electrical, and all interior finishes are left up to the buyer after the house assembly. Right now these are only available in Europe, but I think it’d be great if this concept caught on! What do you think?
