Vancouver-based NOMAD has designed a 10-foot-by-10-foot micro home that can be easily assembled and shipped anywhere in the world.
The two-level loft costs just $25,000 and includes a living room, kitchen, bathroom, stairway and sleeping area. For an additional $3,000 you can buy the “Live” model which comes with kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures. Or if you’re willing to spend even more, the home can be outfitted with green features like solar panels and a rainwater collection system.
“NOMAD’s goal is to reduce consumerism and focus on an affordable and sustainable housing option for the largest portion of our society: hard-working individuals who can’t make ends meet due to the high cost of living,” the NOMAD website explains.
An Indiegogo fundraising campaign to raise $120,000 runs until December 8th, 2013. NOMAD says that will cover the cost of construction, prototype testing as well as “developing the infrastructure for large-scale production.” As of November 2nd, just over $23,000 has been raised.
