In Italy, you can buy low-cost building land, even a few meters from the sea, especially in the south, and install a mini home for the holidays …
No more waste of space and energy with this home powered by renewable energies
Mini homes and transportable and habitable containers are becoming one of the most innovative real estate trends. Their charming charm and practicality are undeniable, and nothing indicates that current will stop, at least in the short term.
The protagonists at the source of the latest innovation in the field are the group WZH (Hebel Weizhengheng Modular House Technology Co.), which produces prefabricated modular houses and containerized, and on sale on Amazon, the giant of electronic commerce. The Asian company has launched a new product that has attracted attention in an industry where it is increasingly difficult to stand out. It is a small house of 20 square meters that can easily be enlarged to provide up to 10 square meters of additional space, thanks to a hydraulic system that allows it to stretch or fold like an accordion.
This prefabricated structure naturally has separate spaces, true fully equipped rooms. It is equipped with a kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom, each room with its furniture. Its real peculiarity lies in its unusual ability to change size on demand: the small house can effectively compress or expand laterally as needed by removing the compartment where the bathroom and part of the living room are located. The procedure is fully automated and can be controlled remotely. And this home not only saves space, but also energy, being equipped with solar and wind energy harvesting systems to power the entire house.
The lighting, television and refrigerator provided with consume no more than 250W. Its third strong point is its price: this transformable home, solidly built from fiberglass composite, starts at just under $ 24,000 (about 21,200 €). But its low cost shouldn’t let you think that it is not a functionally capable house: this mini house has everything you need, whether to live permanently, as a second home or for holidays by the sea or in the mountains.
As often happens with mini homes, these structures can be customized to suit your tastes and needs. For example, the wind and solar system can be replaced by a conventional electrical system to power lights and appliances.
