More an experiment in off-grid living in a backyard setting, this 'micro-home' has 120v electric heat and some solar electricity. Plumbing is unconventional (a 'seperate-type toilet, heat your water in a kettle) and is minimized since there is no hot water tank. The bed may be tight for two people. The space is quiet, private and the backyard is very user friendly. No pets allowed. There are two cats on site.

The space
In 2018 I entered a 100 sq ft microhome design/build competition. This dome won the people's choice award and was mentioned as "the most resolved and most well considered design and realization". The competition requirements were basic; "create a 100 sq ft domicile where two could sleep and is self-contained". The "TinyHomeDome" was my response to the challenge. This dome is well over 10' high, giving it a feeling of spaciousness. While it's only 100 sq ft (11' across) the 10 sided structure holds a tiny kitchen, a hot water kettle, a fridge, a working counter top as well as a folding 'kitchen table', a double sink, a folding 48" wide bed, a shelf and four windows to view every direction. There is also an ecologically sustainable toilet. The toilet is a type of composting toilet and is simple to use. It is also insulated and could be used through the winter. This microhome is the ultimate in space efficiency, simplicity and privacy.

Where you’ll be

Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada

This is in a typical middle-class neighbourhood. A 15 minute walk takes you to restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and parks. A great spot for solo travelers as well as adventuresome couples. Lethbridge has lots of sunshine, lots of wind and not much precipitation.
