The exact amount of work and scope for installation and assembly may vary depending on the chosen model.

If you have further questions about insuring your Tiny House, we are here to assist you.

9. Sustainability

  • How do your tiny houses promote sustainability?

    The sustainability of Tiny Houses is supported by various factors:

    Material and Resource Efficiency: Compared to conventional houses, container homes require fewer building materials, leading to reduced resource consumption and a lower carbon footprint for the construction project.

    Prefabrication and Swift Construction: Containers come with built-in structural components such as walls, floors, and roofs, allowing for faster construction compared to traditional homes. This reduces the environmental impact associated with the construction phase.

    Flexibility and Portability: Container homes are designed to be easily transported, minimizing potential land-use issues as the house can be relocated to a new site when needed.

    Minimalist Lifestyle: The limited size of container homes promotes a minimalist lifestyle focused on the essentials, contributing to resource conservation and reduced consumption.

    Modular Construction: Containers can be easily assembled into more complex structures, facilitating future expansions or modifications without the need for significant amounts of new materials.

    Overall, these aspects collectively contribute to minimizing ecological impacts and promoting a sustainable way of living.

  • Can I use the tiny house independently?

    Ja, bei uns kannst du Modelle wählen, die autark genutzt werden können. Unsere externen Stromspeicher nutzen Solarenergie, um grünen Strom zu gewährleisten. Optional sind unsere Tiny Häuser mit eigenen Zu- und Abwassertanks ausgestattet, die eine autarke Wasserversorgung ermöglichen. Dadurch kannst du dein Tiny Haus unabhängig und nachhaltig nutzen, ganz gleich, wo es aufgestellt ist. Dank StarLink haben wir außerdem die Möglichkeit, eine zuverlässige Internetverbindung ohne Standortbeschränkungen anzubieten.

  • What is the average lifespan of a tiny house?

    Die durchschnittliche Lebensdauer eines Tiny Hauses beträgt in der Regel über 30 Jahre. Unsere Modelle werden aus Schiffscontainern gefertigt, die normalerweise über 20 Jahre in anspruchsvollen Umgebungen im Einsatz sind. Da unsere Standorte nicht den gleichen Einflüssen ausgesetzt sind, gehen wir von einer erweiterten Lebensdauer aus. Beachte jedoch, dass je nach Nutzung gelegentliche Renovierungen, wie sie auch in herkömmlichen Wohnhäusern üblich sind, notwendig sein können.
