miniHome: Modern + Green Urban RV


Introducing the miniHome.  Technically, it's an RV, but it's also designed for year-round living in extreme climates.  Ask the company, and they'll tell you it's perfect as a ski chalet, vacation retreat, cottage, guest cabin, or simple + luxurious home-away-from-home.  The base price is about $107,000 USD (max price $167,000), and if you're thinking of hauling it around, you'll need a vehicle that can handle a 14,000 pound haul.

The company suggests that the miniHome is better suited for semi-permanent living, even though it has wheels.  It was architecturally designed to high sustainable standards, including the following:  no vinyl, no formaldehyde, no toxic adhesives or finishes, all water-based or plant oil-based finishes, no CFCs or HCFCs, all FSC-certified woods, high air ventilation rate, constant fresh air supply via heat-recovery-ventilator, and durable/low-maintenance materials.  It also has a freshwater storage tank of 200 liters.

For those that need a little more space, they've created an optional add-on room of 8 x 12.  When it leaves the factory, it will be fully furnished with blinds/screens, dressers, fold-up tables, sofa beds, kitchen + bathroom appliances, and electrical + lighting systems.  Plus, there's a simple garden on top designed for passive cooling purposes.  This is just a start ... with the miniHome, not only can you live with a light footprint, but you can do it in a modern way.
