If you spend enough time scrolling through all of the tiny houses for sale on Amazon, you might find yourself a little, well, log-cabin-ed out. Nordic wood this, white pine that, and you’re starting to wonder: Ummm, are there any tiny homes not made entirely of stacked timber?
Well, dearest reader, I’m glad you asked.
Introducing—drum roll, please—the NOMAD Micro Home, a modular mini dwelling that’s a lot less Lincoln Logs and a lot more, well, IKEA. Measuring at just 13.5 feet by 13.5 feet, this compact casa is made for only the truly determined and dedicated minimalists out there. Seriously—you best be ready to downsize if you plan on making the Cube (yes, it’s actually called that) your full-time residence. But, hey, the lil guy’s so cute it makes throwing out all that college memorabilia a little less painful/a little more worth it.
Although it puts the “tiny” in tiny house, the eco-friendly abode is still filled with features like an 100-square-foot loft, which is accessible via a curving staircase (read: no ladder) that starts in the living area. It also has a modern kitchen and bathroom that are both equally as sleek in style and allow for full-sized amenities, so no need to score a dorm-sized fridge, folks.
Available for $38,800, this cute lil Cube is DIY and can be put together by at least two people who have, per the casa creators at Nomad, “skills of a ‘handyman.'” Bonus points if they’re qualified to do electric and plumbing, since you’re going to need experts to get those essential functions set up as well.
Now, say you love your micro abode so much but miss your fam and friends. What’s a girl to do? Oh, you know, just convince them to buy their own Cube and connect them (yes, connect) to create a whole cube system that allows you can have your small space and be together too.
