Canadian green living proponent Greenmoxie recently completed its first tiny house. The firm is off to a strong start, and alongside some impressive off-grid technology the eponymous dwelling includes novel features you don't usually expect to see in a tiny house – most notably an electric drawbridge-style deck.

The Greenmoxie Tiny House comprises a total floorspace of 340 sq ft (31.5 sq m), and is based on a triple-axle trailer. Its siding consists of cedar that's treated in the Japanese Shou Sugi Ban technique of charring wood to preserve it. Other notable materials include hardwood oak flooring, reclaimed barn wood ceilings, and reclaimed windows.

Access to the house is gained via a door with combination lock, but you won't even get that far without first lowering the drawbridge deck. This allows the tiny house to remain a reasonable length for towing but extend when stationary to provide a generous outdoor area. Lowering and raising the deck is handled by an electric winch system.

Inside, the layout is primarily on one level, except for a bedroom loft that's accessed by a storage-integrated staircase. The lounge, which has a large couch, movable table, and ample storage space, leads to the kitchen. A sliding barn-style door offers access to the bathroom, which includes a shower, sink, and composting toilet.

Heating comes from both a small wood-burning stove and a propane-powered heater. A heat recovery ventilation system is also installed.

A 1 kW roof-mounted solar array is reported to meet all electricity needs and is hooked up to a battery system. In addition to a grey water system, rainwater is collected and purified for drinking.

Energy-efficient LED lighting is installed throughout the home and insulation is spray foam. The roof and walls have an R-rating of R-35, while the floor is rated to R-22.

We've no exact price for this model, but Greenmoxie says it is somewhere in the region of US$75,000, which is roughly in line with other luxury tiny houses, such as the Moon Dragon and Alpha.
