Self assembled NOMAD Micro Homes

Blog by Bill de Mooy | October 18th, 2019


Nomad Micro Homes’ Ian Kent and Joie Alvaro continue to explore different ways of creating small homes that will appeal to couples and small families. The Canadian company comes up with eco-conscious compact dwellings like an expandable container house with Solar Energy and a Waste Water Treatment Plant—both up for purchase on Amazon.

The Cube only measures 13.5′ x 13.5′ x 13.5′. It’s very tiny and can be flat-packed so it can be shipped anywhere. It’s DIY so it’s like having a new life-size Lego set.

The modular home can also be completed quickly by hiring more people to help you. The process is also like DIY Ikea products. It comes with assembly instructions so you can continue and finish the job.

If you’re moving to a different location, you can dismantle the house. The materials used are light and portable. When the house is assembled, you will see a complete living room, kitchen, bedroom (loft), storage space, bathroom, and even stairs. There are huge windows so natural light is abundant. Some furniture pieces are incorporated that can transform into other areas depending on your needs. The design is homey you won’t think it’s literally a box you’re living in.
