Ultra-Compact Home


(Video link)

Dr Mike Page, the originator of the The Cube Project, is giving you a tour in the ultra-compact eco-home in which one person could live a comfortable life with minimum impact on the environment.

Constructed from a variety of sustainable materials, the Cube provides everything that a single person (or two friendly people) might need.

Within its 27 cubic metres it includes a lounge, with a table and two custom-made chairs, a small double bed (120cm wide), a full-size shower, a kitchen (with energy-efficient fridge, induction hob, re-circulating cooker hood, sink/drainer, combination microwave oven and storage cupboards), a washing machine, and a composting toilet.

Lighting is achieved by ultra-efficient LED lights, and the Cube is heated using an Ecodan air-source heat pump, with heat being recovered from extracted air. It has cork flooring and there is two-metre head height throughout.

I live in France and 27m2 is a big space...I know of lots of people living comfortably in less..There are books on the market about dealing with tiny spaces. Its all about organizing.
