World’s smallest eco-home showcased
April 22 2011
Despite its diminutive stature its architects believe The Cube can have a big impact on showing the way ahead with its sustainably sourced sweet chestnut cladding and plethora of energy saving devices.
Incorporating a lounge, table & chairs, double bed, shower, and fully fitted kitchen the structure offers everything the non-claustrophobic could want.
Illuminated via LED lights the building features an Ecodan air-source heat pump, cork flooring and 2m of head room.
Built as a technology demonstrator the home could contribute around £1,000 a year to its owners pockets through the sale of surplus energy back to the grid.
