Like the look of PassivPod ecolodge? Why not live in your zero carbon home forever? The facilities, size and quality of the PassivPod ecolodge are so comfortable that it could easily be used as a permanent home.
With the construction industry responsible for 30% of global carbon emissions, living in a zero carbon home substantially lowers your personal carbon footprint. PassivPod offers all the modern conveniences of a traditional house while promoting an outdoor lifestyle, being gentle on the environment and generating all its own energy – and much of its water. This would mean utility bills very close to zero.
For a zero carbon home, the interior layout would stay more or less the same as the ecolodge version.
The interiors of the zero carbon home will be bright, spacious and welcoming, with all habitable rooms enjoying views of the surrounding environment. Four double bedrooms, two bathrooms and ample storage are included upstairs above the living/dining and kitchen areas on the ground floor. Where desired and access routes permit, each PassivPod will also have the option to include a garage-pod for two cars, bicycles and storage etc with a further 1.2kWp roof solar PV array to charge an electric car.
The informal organic layout of the dwelling compliments an outdoor lifestyle through its extensive floor-to-ceiling glazing, balcony and decking area as well as its optional luxury extras such as a hot tub and barbecue.
PassivPods are made of sustainable natural materials and use passive solar, solar power and a wood stove to be zero carbon in operation. The pods include renewable energy technologies to provide power and utilise water conservation methods and rainwater harvesting so the pods can be entirely off-grid and their biophilic design blends seamlessly into a natural landscape, meaning they’re perfect for sensitive sites, AONB or national parks and also making it easier to get planning approval in protected natural areas.
Many people aspire to live a sustainable low-impact lifestyle close to the land, generating their own renewable energy and perhaps even their own food. PassivPod is the perfect way to facilitate such a lifestyle.
