Steel-built prefab homes are a new way to tackle the housing crisis, and ORCA has just released their Sandpiper model, a 418 sq. ft. tiny house that’s built using a pop-up factory — sometimes on-site! There’s no trailer, which allows for the 13-foot width that leaves the home feeling extra spacious.
ORCA also takes advantage of the brilliant Murphy bed, which allows the living room to easily double as the bedroom. That leaves lots of square footage for a full kitchen and a large bathroom with a walk-in shower and washer/dryer. The home pictured below costs $166K (USD).
Welcome back, tiny house enthusiasts! We have some exciting news to share with you. Nestron, the renowned prefab tiny house manufacturer, is opening showrooms in Texas and California in 2023! Do you remember Nestron and the Cube and Cube 2 models we showed you? Well, there’s some exciting news! Since they are opening showrooms in Texas and California in 2023, this means that U.S. customers can now explore their incredible designs in person and will no longer need to pay to ship from Canada. To celebrate, Nestron sent us the latest pictures of the Cube 2 to share with you below.
The C2 starts at $59,000 and tops out at $85,420 depending on the features you add. No matter what, it comes fully furnished, and you can also upgrade to a solar system to take it off-grid and even get heated bathroom floors. Remember, this is a one-floor unit with two bedrooms, so you could possibly fit a family of 3 or 4 inside — and there’s no loft. What do you think?
We’re so excited to introduce you to Lloyoll Prefabs (pronounced “loyal”) in Canada, and their gorgeous SKALI BackCountry Cuboid unit. This modern marvel has a special rusted-looking exterior and oodles of windows to let in natural light.
There’s a ground-floor queen bedroom and space in the lofts for two more beds. A wood-burning stove warms the open floor plan, with a spacious kitchen on one end and living space in the middle. Take a look at this beautiful space below!
If you liked the concept of the Dove model prefab home shell we showed you previously, but need more space, you’re in luck! The same company, NIDUS, also makes a “Condor” model in two larger sizes — one around 400 square feet, and the other around 750 square feet. And they start at about $29,447 and $49,756, respectively.
Both models have a similar first-floor set-up, with a living room, kitchen, and bathroom, but the smaller Condor has an open loft (stand-up), while the larger model features two bedrooms upstairs. Either option would work well for a couple or even a small family (especially the larger version). What do you think?
While others may have spent their quarantines learning how to bake bread or watching endless videos on the Internet, Maddy and her sister spent their time dreaming up and building the perfect mountain tiny house!
The two designed what was Maddy’s home, which is now an Airbnb, starting with a prefab shell and then making all the right customizations to create a truly special build. It features a full-sized bathroom and a cozy raised living room. Enjoy the tour!
Looking for a tiny house that’s fireproof, termite-resistant, has no loft and doesn’t sit on wheels? This PreFabulous Home checks all those boxes!
This expandable tiny house is 350 square feet and can include two bedrooms. There are a number of layout options available, as well as exterior and interior finishes to make the home truly yours. The home can also be moved because it can be folded up and transported on a truck — meaning it’s location isn’t set in stone (pun intended).
This is the pinnacle of “smart” tiny home prefabricated construction! While the iOhouse has a hefty price tag, it’s still a super cool concept: This home is 100% off grid while being fully self-contained — and everything from the furniture to the heat to the lights can be controlled from your smartphone.
Coming in at about 645 square feet, it features with two fold-out porches, a mechanical room, spacious living area, downstairs master bedroom, and a kitchen and bathroom. The home is solar-powered, and created without any synthetic materials! Just wood, wool, glass and metal — pretty neat! You will need to get the waste removed and water refilled about every two weeks (with two person occupancy), but apparently that’s easily done in European countries.
Yes, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, this PassivDom modulOne is the “warmest house in the world.”
And it’s only 380 sq. ft.! The modulOne is a super cool manufactured structure that comes in three “levels” of completeness: The Autonomous (which is 100% self-sustaining), the Standard (which has all your appliances, fixtures, etc. but needs to be hooked up to exterior power/sewer), and the Module Plus (a finished shell with wiring for electrical and heating, but nothing else).
Enjoy the pictures and the video tour, and be sure to check out all the additional details and pricing below!
The solar powered pod called the Innovation Pod is a modular structure that can be configured to different shapes, sizes, and purposes: Like a tiny house, coach house, mobile office, art gallery, food truck, and more.
This pod prototype was built and designed by Ottawa’s prototypeD, and is currently operated by MadeMill as a mobile digital media lab.
It’s unique curved roof was built with corrugated metal and the pod is powered with 3kW of solar power feeding into an 11kWh battery bank.
