Australian design firm HÄUSLEIN created this gorgeous tiny home on wheels that not only lets you live out your tiny living dreams but even makes it easier to get your laundry done. Although the 215-square-foot Little Sojourner has a distinct cabin feel about it, it boasts a thoroughly modern design that includes a keyless entry, a sleeping loft with a laundry chute and plenty of natural light. What’s more, the savvy house can be completely outfitted with off-grid capabilities. The Little Sojourner tiny home on wheels features a number of resilient and sustainable features. Clad in western red cedar, the structure was built using a timber frame that is termite-resistant and durable enough for almost any climate. The home is also well-insulated with a moisture-resistant fiberglass wool and silver sarking insulation. Related: Cabin-like tiny home insulated with hemp, cotton and linen You enter the tiny home through large, dual glass doors to be greeted by a bright, airy interior with high ceilings and ample natural light. Throughout the home, white walls and solid cypress pine flooring create a modern cabin aesthetic. The main living space includes a fully equipped kitchen with a full-sized fridge and plenty of counterspace that pulls double duty as a breakfast bar. Next up is the living area, which has enough room for a three-seat couch as well as a custom-made cypress pine shelving unit. A corner bathroom includes a spacious closet, a corner shower and an optional composting toilet . A simple, cypress ladder leads up to the sleeping loft , which has enough room for a queen-sized bed and a side table. Unlike many tiny home sleeping lofts, the Little Sojourner features plenty of headroom, removing the need to crouch down at all times. Also in the bedroom is one of the home’s most unique features — a laundry chute in the floor that leads directly to the laundry basket in the downstairs bathroom. Although the Little Sojourner tiny home comes with some amazing features on its own, it can also be completely customized, including outfitting the structure for off-grid functionality. The starting price is $89,900. + HÄUSLEIN Via Tiny House Talk Photography by Scott Rohdich via HÄUSLEIN

Electricity-free, foot-powered washing machine is slated for release this summer

Comments Off on Electricity-free, foot-powered washing machine is slated for release this summer

The Drumi, from product design company Yirego , is a washing machine powered by your feet — no electricity necessary. The device uses six to 12 liters of water per load, and can wash almost five pounds of clothes in around five minutes. Inhabitat first covered the little washing machine in 2015, and we checked in with Yirego to hear how they’ve improved the product, slated for release this summer. Yirego designed an environmentally friendly washing machine powered by you. And after more than 10,000 hours of product development, the Drumi is in production, and the company is aiming to release it in the summer of 2018. As they progressed past the early stages of design , they made a few key changes to improve the washing machine. Related: The zero-electricity Gentlewasher does the laundry in five minutes flat One change is the carrying handle. Users only need one hand to transport the machine, as opposed to holding both sides with the earlier model. The handle doubles as a lock, keeping the lid in place as a user peddles. The production model is now shorter than the earlier model; Yirego lowered the machine’s center of gravity to boost stability and durability. Also, they addressed peoples’ concerns that a dirty machine would impact their skin and laundry by enabling users to remove the drum out of the new Drumi for easy cleaning. Yirego said they’ve filed patents for these technologies. The washing machine is aimed at people living off the grid , in small urban apartments, or in mobile homes , to name a few. It can be utilized for small loads containing clothing like activewear or delicates. About five minutes is all it takes to clean clothes in the Drumi: around two minutes to wash, two to rinse, and 30 seconds to spin dry. You can pre-order the machine, which costs $299, in silver or green on the Yirego website . + Yirego Images courtesy of Yirego
