Moonlight in Vermont? Sunlight might be better for this tiny solar powered home built by Alex Carver and Christopher North of Northern Timbers in Vermont. The Burlington Microhome is a 100 square-foot modular house that is off-grid and ready for additional modules to be added to it if needed.
Northern Timbers built the microhome with design help from landscape architect and metal artist H. Keith Wagner.
Much of Northern Timbers’ work reinterprets the traditional Vermont vernacular by introducing new applications of diverse materials into the residential setting, resulting in homes with a practical yet creative aesthetic. The exterior steel of the building will weather in the extreme climate, giving extra character to the place.
Their design meets the challenges of a northern climate while creating a modern, energy efficient tiny home. Their company has achieved LEED Gold certification, while two other homes they built were awarded American Institute of Architecture awards for Excellence in Architecture.
Northern Timbers devotes personal attention to each stage of the job from planning to completion, working closely with homeowners and architects to achieve custom homes that reflect the unique tastes of the owner yet remain within the reach of modest budgets.
