Canadian publication Greenmoxie has jumped into the tiny house market with an eco-friendly gem that is called the Greenmoxie Tiny House. "Combining the unique aesthetic of innovative designer David Shephard and the craftsmanship and ingenuity of builder Ian Fotheringham," it boasts a two-tiered roofline that allows for a rooftop solar panel that takes care of the basic power needs for the home. It also includes a novel, drawbridge-style front porch that is raised for traveling.
With a mission dedicated to all things green, the website proclaims that the tiny house concept "really ticked all our boxes," including efforts to "recycle, upcycle and ... continuously ... waste less, consume less and need less."
Subsequently, the publication could not resist the temptation to dapple in the tiny house continuum. Aside from an opportunity to create a sustainable, off-grid home, "the idea of living mortgage-free only added to the appeal," the publication says. After all, if a homeowner is dancing as fast as he or she can to make payments on a house that is too large for their earthly concerns, then what is the point? Waste often starts with overdoing it, and the opposite of that -- referred to as green -- sometimes just means "relax, we've got it covered."
Let's see if Greenmoxie has it covered with their tiny house.
Here's the porch raised part of the way -- or lowered part way, as the case may be.
OK, now you can hit the road with the deck raised all the way. Let's not stay outside, though. Let's take a peek inside.
Now, that's a handsome interior. The red couch may be narrow, but it allows the room to have a very spacious feel to it -- you give a little here, you gain a little there. That glorious window on the right is spectacular.
Here's a long view of the home just as you enter. The red door on the left is the front door swung open. The big door handle shows hints right away that this is a solidly built home.
The kitchen also has a terrific window, imparting a sereneness to the Greenmoxie Tiny Home. Serene and green, you could say, are close relatives.
These shelves are opposite the kitchen at the bottom of the stairs leading to the sleeping loft.
The raised roof on the back of the Greenmoxie Tiny House allows for plenty of headroom in the sleeping loft. The portal window is a great touch.
The sliding bathroom door is open, allowing for a peak at the loo.
Here's a similar view with the door shut. Did you know they made wood burning stoves as small as that?
Here's the wood-burning stove close up. What appears to be a heat-activated fan helps circulate the warm air once the stove gets going.
After this house tour, one cannot but agree with Greenmoxie. What they've ended up with "is the most beautiful, functional, innovative green home that is completely off-grid."
