Nomad Vancouver’s “Micro Home” Concept

NOMAD MicroHome, a Vancouver-based housing start-up by designer Ian Kent, has announced the successful production of its prototype. The company strives “to offer a cost effective micro home under $30,000 USD that can be shipped anywhere on the planet and is easily assembled… light-weight, strong, well-insulated and resistant to rot and termites… striking the perfect balance between size, economy and livability… using a unique system of piles that eliminates the need for a concrete foundation NOMAD barely touches the ground and leaves little to no footprint, specialized wall and roof panels minimize energy requirement for heating and the addition of solar panels and a rain collection system renders its ecological footprint virtually non-existant”. The company has recently begun a crowd-sourced fundraising campaign for futher development.
