The Crib - Fully Recyclable and Sustainable Prefab Cottage (5)
It seems that these days some of the most creative projects have been delivered in small packages. The latest to surface is this charming Prefab Cottage fittingly titled ‘The Crib.’

This property was built on the principle of being eco-friendly, and boasts a 2011 Custom Home Design Award. The small cottage is available in two different models; a smaller version that includes 125 square feet of enclosed living space coupled with a 125 square feet deck and a larger version that features the same size deck with an closed living space of twice the size at 250 square feet.

This humble abode is completed with roof mounted solar panels and even solar powered hot water. Trendir goes into further detail in regards to the sustainability of the project. “This sustainable home features a compact, efficient footprint, and is prefabricated using recyclable materials like steel, aluminum, fiberglass and polycarbonate, for minimal site disturbance. In fact, this entire structure is recyclable. The home is heated using efficient propane and electric radiant floor heating. Cooling comes via a ceiling fan. Efficient LED and CFL light sources illuminate the interiors”
