A Passive 3D Printed Tiny Home

Ukrainian engineer Max Gerbut has just unveiled the prototype of PassivDom, which is a passive tiny house with many intriguing features. PassiveDom was built using 3D printing technology, and according to Max, it is the first completely autonomous house in the world, since it does not require any fuel combustion of any sort, no matter where it is placed i.e. not even in an Arctic climate.

But at the push of a button, the two longer sides expand out, giving it a width of 15 ft (4.6 m) and a total living area of 337 sq ft (31 sq m) which is quite roomy. These two extensions are operated with electric motors. (more…)

The home also quite possibly has the smallest footprint we’ve seen for a good while. (more…)
