The Mini Home’s exterior materials are comprised of an Iverit fa├žade and a bitumen roof while the floor is laid with hardwood panels. All of the prefabricated modules [5] and add ons, including a compact kitchen and bath module, heater and chimney, storage module and a 12V solar power kit [6] are delivered to the site flatpacked.

A concrete foundation is laid and the mini home is usually constructed within two days. Albeit small, the home is suitable for all weather conditions and features extraordinary attention to detail. Trimless windows and neat organization of the electrical feeds ensures that living small can also mean living large! The Mini House follows on the heels of other tiny homes like Michelle de la Vega’s [7] impressive renovation, signaling a powerful shift to a new way of life.
