You’ve probably already seen miniHome – a small, mobile, eco-friendly prefab built with clean lines and modern elements – which has been featured all over the news and television. Sustain Design Studio, a Toronto firm behind the home, just launched a redesigned miniHome to be built in the company’s newly established factory in Bracebridge, Ontario. The new miniHome is lighter, better, and more affordable.
I recently mentioned the construction of Greenfab‘s model home in Seattle, and that home is now complete. I think you’ll agree, it’s just as warm and handsome as the renderings. The six-module abode — on target for LEED Platinum and Built Green 5-Star certification — has 1,790 square feet with three bedrooms, two and three-quarters bathrooms, a separate mother-in-law space, a planted rooftop deck, and an urban chicken coop.
If you follow the tiny house movement, you may have heard about Blake’s Tiny House. The project is led by a team of four – Blake Dinkins, Lance Cayko, Alex Gore, and Sarah Schulz – who met at North Dakota University while pursuing master of architecture degrees. Their goal is to document the construction of the 128-square foot home from beginning to end.
