2008 will be a great year for the miniHome! It has been selected to participate in the Milan Triennale in October 2008.
Although, technically, the miniHome is a recreational vehicle (it is on wheels), it is designed to work as a permanent, comfortable vacation retreat.
Designed by Canadian architect Andy Thomson, the miniHome produces all the energy required for its onboard electrical loads by solar panels (located on a pivoting aluminum canopy over the front door) and an optional 400Watt wind turbine can help with more intense usage. There is also an onboard propane system for space heating, hot water, cooking and refrigeration.
