One of their designs is the Nomad, a mobile tiny house with a classic two-loft layout that is perfect for off-grid life in the great outdoors. It's tailored for people who long for freedom and want to build a life they don't need a vacation from. Beautifully crafted and surprisingly spacious, this model boasts a country-style finish and is fitted with everything you need to live off-grid comfortably.
Like most of this brand's tiny houses, the Nomad is designed and built in such a way as to enable occupants to save money on bills and live in a sustainable way. Through the use of sustainably sourced materials and high-quality PIR insulation panels, as well as the installation of solar panels as standard, the builders managed to considerably reduce energy consumption for this home, which is said to use as little as 20-30% of a standard home.
The exterior is clad in thermo-treated wood siding, an excellent environmentally friendly material that is resistant to decay and lasts at least five times longer than regular, untreated wood. It also enhances the house's thermal insulation and is pleasant to the eye.
Inside the Nomad tiny house on wheels, the designers went for a contemporary look with crisp white walls, clean lines, well-delineated areas, and rustic oak wood finishes that add warmth and calmness to the design.
The layout is nothing revolutionary. There is an open-plan living area downstairs, with a lounge/living room and kitchen, a separate bathroom at the end of the house, and two lofted bedrooms. Several windows and 14-foot (4.25-meter) high ceilings enhance the feeling of spaciousness, while modern fittings and appliances ensure utmost comfort. Clever storage solutions integrated throughout the house, including a staircase with ample storage, cabinets, and storage cubicles in the master loft, ensure every room can be kept well-organized for a clutter-free ambiance.
The adjacent kitchen is compact but well-equipped for a family's cooking needs, with a two-hob electric cooktop, an electric oven, a sink, and a fridge. Opposite the kitchen, a storage-integrated staircase adds even more storage for kitchen essentials and an oak table tucked underneath can serve as both a dining area or workspace, based on the owners' needs.
A sliding door leads to the bathroom, which is one of the nicest we've seen in a tiny house so compact. It is modern with tiled walls and laminate flooring and very well organized. It fits a glass-enclosed shower cabin, a Separett composting toilet, a vanity with sink and mirror, and a washer/dryer unit.
Pricing for the standard Nomad tiny home with solar panels starts at £64,500 (approx. US $81,429). However, as the company explains, everyone's off-grid experience is different, depending on their needs, budget, and what they expect from making the move. Live Off Grid's tiny houses usually come with 1000W solar panels, which, coupled with a battery storage pack, is enough to live comfortably in the UK throughout the year. Other features for off-grid living include 200 liters of clean water tanks, a 100-liter grey water tank, and a 100-liter black water tank.
