The original Minim Home is based in Washington, D.C.
The manufactured version of the Minim House can be ordered both on a trailer or a foundation. Its 265 square feet of space feels much larger than it actually is. The new Minim will also be a refined version of the original with features like a standard mini-split heating and cooling unit, an updated bed platform, and extended two-year factory warranty on construction.
The moveable table can be adjusted be used as a desk, coffee table or dining table.
The layout of the Minim will be the same as the Intel House, which was built last year as a prototype for Intel’s Internet of Things Platform. The layout includes the main living area with a moveable table that can positioned to become a dining table or coffee table. The kitchen includes a combination microwave/convection oven and cooktop that can be removed from the counter.
The Minim platform can fit a full bed on top and a queen bed on rollers underneath.
The kitchen counter includes a removable cooktop.
The movie screen also acts as a blind against the large front window.
The newly designed bed platform allows for a full size bed to fit on top of the platform along with the optional platform closet installed. There is room for a queen size bed to fit under the platform and still be rolled away during the day. The bathroom has a full shower and can accommodate a flush toilet or a composting or incinerating toilet.
The Minim’s built-in sofa also includes plenty of storage.
The Minim House will be built with high quality, 45-year standing seam metal roofing with downspouts and seamless gutters, and Windsor double paned windows and doors. The exterior is covered with Atlantic white cedar T&G siding.
The Minim’s layout will be like the Intel House with a larger bed platform.
The basic Minim House is $71,000 plus delivery and the trailer option is an extra $4,800. Minim Homes will also be selling floor plans for the foundation-built version of the original Minim house.
