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!

This is Callie’s Coop, a solar-powered tiny house homeless shelter designed by a 5th grader — that cost a whole $10 to build.

Callie designed this micro pod for a school project, and I’ve never seen a 5th grader with so much poise describing her brilliant creation. It includes everything from a solar oven to a rainwater catchment system to a composting toilet. And by using reclaimed materials, she kept the cost down to a meager $10 bill. Now that’s impressive!

She’s just proof that you’re never too young to start changing the world. Go Callie! (And big thanks to RelaxShacks for this video).

This is one woman’s off-the-grid tiny home on wheels!

Outside, you’ll find a light green wooden home with a standard rectangle shape but a pitched roof to allow space for the loft bedroom. On top of the metal porch roof, you’ll notice two solar panels and there’s another solar panel on the roof that provides the house’s power and hot water. The porch roof is designed to collect rainwater. The windows have been painted yellow with white trim for a punch of lovely color. A large wrap-around deck provides outdoor living space that includes a lovely table and chairs for enjoying meals.

When you go inside, you’ll find beautiful wood flooring and cream walls. The living area includes a purple L-shaped couch, tiny wood-burning stove and even a little corner desk for working or studying. The kitchen includes a large sink, oven and stove, and a fridge, plus beautiful two-toned wooden cabinets. The bathroom includes a composting toilet, a stand-in shower, and a sink, as well as a washing machine. Take the fun “floating” steps up to the bedroom and take a nap on the queen-sized bed with windows to the lovely outdoors. How would you like living in a tiny house like this one? Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
