Today in rad brand extensions, Canadian green living blog Greenmoxie has unveiled their 340-square-foot, off-grid tiny house on wheels that is now available for purchase. Originally intended as an one-off project for readers to book on Airbnb, the now commercialized model emphasizes sustainable construction, with special attention to things like the building envelope, air quality, water conservation, and renewable energy.

Designed by Greenmoxie co-founder David Shephard and green building consultant Ian Fotheringham, the Greenmoxie tiny house uses a slew of reclaimed materials for everything from the barn wood ceiling and bathroom barn door to windows and light fixtures. The tiny house’s eco-friendly cred can be found in the 1 kW solar PV system with 11 kW storage capacity, a roof water recovery system, and low-voltage LED lighting as well.

We’re also digging a few custom features not commonly seen in other tiny houses, including the Baltic birch shelving and matching bench, the frameless glass railing in the loft, and an electric drawbridge deck. The price has not been disclosed, but this does not sound like a cheap build.
