Small Home, Big Idea

The idea behind the Cube, a compact micro home, was to prove that the technology exists to live a modern life with minimal environmental impact - in a sense to create a living exercise in low energy living.

The Cube house is highly insulated and has a floor plan measuring 3 meters by 4 meters, with a height of 3 meters. It uses low energy technology that is available and affordable now, like solar power, in combination with an efficient air source heat pump which heats the water for showers, cooking and central heating.

Enjoy this tour, with plenty of terrific space saving tips for the rest of us!
