Having the ability to survive despite being detached from the rest of civilization is suddenly becoming more appealing, looking at the rate the coronavirus pandemic spread in urban centers.
If you’re one of those people who are now considering an alternative lifestyle, you will find this Slovakian-made tiny home quite interesting.
Welcome to Space
Ecocapsule, the company behind a tiny wind and solar-powered house of the same name, has announced a new product called Space.
The 68-square-foot unit is reportedly a result of demand from customers. It’s a more affordable and comfortable version of the original Ecocapsule.
Space, which retails beginning at $56,000, is also more accessible for more people as it can be plugged into the grid when needed. The Ecocapsule is entirely powered by solar panels and a wind turbine for off-grid living.
Of course, Space can also be an off-grid companion as it still has the same removable solar panels as its predecessor.
Minimalist & Multi-Functional
Space’s interiors feature a minimalist design that’s adaptable to a variety of uses. At its most basic, the tiny home comes with laminated floors and a plywood cabinet wall.
It can accommodate two people and additional furniture, which can be bought from Ecocapsule as well but for an added cost. Space can be turned from a home office to a guest room to even a houseboat addition, depending on the things you add to it.
The tiny home would also fit as an addition to the original Ecocapsule for those who want some extra space. Another use Space can serve well is as a low contact option for travelers, whether they’re moving places for business or leisure.
Space’s exteriors are made of insulated fiberglass laid over steel. Its color may be customized based on personal tastes.
The unit is also pretty portable. Measuring just 15 feet by seven feet and weighing less than a standard car, Space can be taken to seemingly unreachable pockets of nature.
Powered by Nature
As previously mentioned, Space is powered by solar panels and corresponding batteries, which provide energy for things like the LED lights inside the micro-unit and other add ons its residents may need.
It can accommodate the addition of both heating and air conditioning features. This is certainly good news for people who plan on heading to locations that experience extreme temperatures and weather conditions.
