Super High Tech Off-Grid Tiny House for Sustainable Living | Net Zero Energy Home

This is a full tour of a super innovative net zero tiny house that is 100% solar powered! It has a roof made of integrated solar panels and an atmospheric water generator prototype. It’s insulated with vacuum insulated panels, it has a home automation system, a sliding loft, and more!

The Northern Nomad tiny home was designed and built by a group of students from Carleton University. In this video, we’re meeting up with the professor and 4 students who worked on this high tech green building project to get a full tour, and find out more.
