If you have always thought it would be cool to live in a hobbit house, you will want to check out the EcoChic Collection by Green Magic Homes. These underground homes can be constructed on any suitable site.
Simply gorgeous, right? Not only do these tiny houses blend in magnificently with their natural surroundings, but they also cut down heating and cooling costs by around 80%.
There are several models which qualify as tiny houses. Let’s check them out.
Everglades: 225 Square Feet
This is the smallest EcoChic house, measuring just 225 square feet with a shell price of $19,000. Like the other EcoChic models, it is named for a beautiful natural destination which served as inspiration.
The house is a studio unit with a single bathroom.
Rainier – 255 Square Feet
For a slightly larger home, consider the Rainier. Measuring 255 square feet, it has a shell price of $24,000.
This house has two entrances, both of them comprised of windows, so there is a ton of light flooding into the interior.
Jasper – 370 Square Feet
Finally, one more tiny model to consider is the Jasper, which measures 370 square feet and carries a shell price of $28,000.
It’s understandable why the company chose the name “Jasper.” Jasper National Park is Canada’s most spacious national park, and that reflects the roominess of this home’s interior.
Each of these homes includes the same great features: an entrance porch, a convection-inducing shape and earth embankment to naturally heat and cool the home, and a shell which resists corrosion and provides protection from fire.
There are some additional options which you can select for your EcoChic tiny house as well. Air quality monitoring is available, as are reverse osmosis filters, urban cultivars, artificial sunlight, and climate-based window packages.
While these houses are constructed aboveground—not technically underground like hobbit holes in the hillsides—they fit right into the natural world. At a glance, they look like they have always been a part of it.
