WINNER OF A 2016 CANADIAN ARCHITECT AWARD OF MERIT

Volunteers can erect the engineered wood post-and-beam frame by hand, and then, using a winch and pulley system, hoist prefabricated infill panels into place. The flat-packed design allows the house components to be transported by air or by off-road vehicles.
The basic 10-foot-wide module encloses 191 square feet and sleeps up to four people; additional modules can be connected to accommodate more people. Optional inserts include a propane tank, composting toilet, and a solar power storage unit. The design encourages passive cooling, and includes photovoltaic panels to be installed on the sloped roof at mid-latitudes, or on a vertical façade at high and low latitudes.
A range of interior fit-out options and exterior finishes is available. This includes the possibility of furnishing the prefabricated shells...
