Gallery: Faberhaus Pavilion: Tiny, Off-Grid Eco Cottage For Nature Love...

 
Passive solar heating and cooling and natural ventilation minimize the mini home's energy usage.

This compact little dwelling unit comes complete with everything you might need, including a full kitchen, dining area, bathroom, living and a loft bedroom. Accessed via a ladder, the loft is large enough to sleep two children and two adults. Meanwhile, the kitchen table and bench are designed to fold up for extra space or can be converted into a bed for an adult and then the couch can sleep an additional two adults.

Passive solar heating and cooling and natural ventilation minimize the mini home’s energy usage. Solar panels on the roof provide off-grid power for the LED lighting and propane powers the stove, refrigerator and radiant floor heating. Built in Faberca’s factory in Quebec, the prefab home is delivered to the site 95% complete with polished concrete floors on the lower level,  laminated wood floors on the upper, furniture, walnut cupboards, concrete counters/sinks, appliances and large windows.

Installation of the home can happen on almost any site and has only a small impact on the land due to minimal requirements for a foundation or footing. Starting at $89,000 a pop these little prefab homes include everything you need to live off the land without a grid connection. You can check out the Faberhaus Pavilion live during the The City & Suburb Home Show in Montreal from February 24-27th.

    I don’t know, I don’t like the idea of living in a box.
