Described as a “sustainable tiny house kit,” this home is easier to assemble than furniture, believe it or not. The Nomad Micro Home was created by Vancouver architect Ian Kent, and was designed to be so small and lightweight that a buyer can ship it anywhere in the world then put it together using basic carpentry skills.

The base Nomad Micro house kit measures only 10×10 feet and includes a living room, kitchen, upstairs sleeping loft, and costs $25,000. To save space, many of the home’s amenities function with dual purpose; for example, the kitchen shelves also act as stairs to the loft and the entire bathroom serves as the shower stall. Though it is designed as a dwelling for only 1-2 residents, several kits can be assembled together to make a larger home. For an additional cost, buyers can upgrade their home with eco-friendly add-ons like solar energy panels, rainwater collection and grey water treatment systems, and a compost toilet.
