haus.me has been experimenting with fully autonomous, off-grid mobile homes since it’s founding in 2016. it has developed a patented composite polymer insulation that can be 3D-printed into a construction material for building walls. combined with the company’s six-panelled windows, the prefabricated units have the potential to save buyers thousands of dollars in annual energy costs.

the house doesn’t require an electric grid, propane, natural gas, firewood or any other fuel. it instead uses solar energy for heating, cooling and electricity, working in both hot and cold climates.

according to haus.me, construction permits and foundations are not needed for the smaller mone and mTwo units. the first haus.me unit, an autonomous mOne model, was delivered last month to a beta customer in ukraine.

  • don’t get me wrong: it’s a nice exploration for a fully ‘off-the-gird” home, and these technologies could help build more energy efficient dwellings….but which issue are we tackling here exactly? The urgent need of millionaires to live into the wild?!

    Giuseppe says:
  • Don’t care for the hidden kitchen in this layout, going to get stuck behind the sliding door getting to fridge. Overall feel like there is a bit too much emphasis on being able to hide everything, the minimalism took over good sense in some areas it seems.
