This turnkey tiny home costs less than $40,000 to set up and can be relocated using a forklift and flatbed trailer.
The prefab is designed by Vika Living, an LA-based startup that aims to create ‘flexible housing for the future’. It’s the company’s first product and, according to them, is aimed at both the burgeoning glamping market and situations that might require emergency housing.
The glass-fronted Vika One has 144-sq-ft of space, including a kitchen and bathroom with a full-size shower. It’s designed to be installed almost anywhere, with its adjustable chassis meaning owners don’t need to worry about permanent foundations. Insulation allows the cabin to be used year-round (it’s worth noting that Vika Living has not tested it out in ‘extreme’ climates.)
The company delivers the home via truck, with everything – including heating, energy, water and waste systems – ready to go. There’s also an off-grid version available which comes with rooftop solar panels; however, that’ll add an extra $8,000 to the $38,000 base unit cost.
