NestHouse Available Models
The NestHouse Moveable Modular Micro House System is in the process of transitioning from its prototype 1.0 stage to the 2.0 iteration! There are now four NestHouse Models available to make choice and configuration as flexible as possible. Pages are being added gradually so please check back soon for complete details.
The NestHouse SPACE - is the main 'Live' module from the NestHouse 1.0 concept. It is an open floorplan 3.4m wide x 3.6m to 7.2m long unit available in 1.2m increments.
This can simply be used by itself as a studio, writer's retreat, hobby room, home office, Scottish Hutting etc. but fundamentally forms the starting point for the NestHouse modular design with the addition of any combination of the modules available:
Modules: Enter, Bathe, Sleep Loft, Sleep Niche, or LINK
With these it can be tailored to more complex functions right up to standalone permanent living accommodation: a NestHouse for micro living, first time buyers, homesteading, ADU accessory dwelling unit, granny annexe and so on.
The NestHouse SOLO - is based on the highly acclaimed NestHouse prototype with which I began this project. It consists of a 4.8m Live module together with the Enter, Bathe and Sleep Loft modules. As such it is a conveniently pre-configured tiny house solution for use as extra accommodation, static caravan alternative etc.
As such it is a ready made example of what can be achieved with the available modules but of course your NestHouse can be based around a SPACE model of the desired size (3.6-7.2m long) and then fitted with whichever modules you require - this is just one of the benefits of the NestHouse Moveable Modular Micro House System!
The NestHouse DUO - is the accommodation module which I designed for the Social Bite Village in Edinburgh as a direct development of the concepts enshrined in my prototype. It has two single berths - Sleep Niche modules at either end (ie. no Sleep Lofts).
It is ideal for extra accommodation or for social and business applications and can be individually hand built by myself to my individual spec. or supplied in commercial quantities (not limited by my 3 per year output!) through my construction partners to full BS3632:2015 compliance. As with all NestHouses there is very little long term site impact and they can easily and quickly be re-deployed to another site as required.
The NestHouse LINK - describes any multiple combination of units joined or linked by a LINK module. This is a 3.4m wide x 2.4 /3.6m long module to join two other NestHouse models - either in a straight line or at an obtuse angle set for shelter or solar gain etc.. This allows for a larger footprint than a single NestHouse™ and a combination of specific functions in the units - eg. use a SPACE linked to a SOLO for a studio with accommodation; or two SOLOs linked to provide a larger house.
This increases the NestHouse range footprint from the smallest 3.6m SPACE at 12.2m2 up to 49m2 for two 7.2m SPACEs with a 3.6m LINK module. A truly sustainable construction methodology to provide a low energy, long life, small scale architecture with real integrity.
There are many creative variations for the LINK module ranging from a simple covered breezeway to a glass fronted atrium.
