The following materials will help you construct a tiny eco-friendly house:

  • Generate power by integrating a solar panel into your roof!
  • Avoid heat loss by using a low-emission coating window (e.g., spraying metallic oxide onto windows). This keeps the warmth outside the house in the mid-year and inside the house in the winter.
  • Protect your rooftop and flooring using materials made from Hemcrete, a material produced using the wood within the hemp plant.
  • Use cork flooring; corks floors are hypoallergenic and thoroughly water resistant.
  • Use recycled glass tile for your kitchen & washroom
  • Use a composting toilet – A composting toilet is easy-to-install and inexpensive
