Wild Hart has created its first fully functional off-grid cabin. Working very closely with its client, Wild Hart developed a cabin complete with a kitchenette, en-suite shower room and compost toilet, powered solely from solar and gas.
Hot water is provided via a small LPG boiler to serve the shower, sink and basin. The LPG also fuels a small hob for cooking. The cabin is kept warm and damp free with a low voltage infrared heating system integrated into the ceiling panels. The ultra-thin, lightweight, patented nano-fleece is adhered to the ceiling and covered with a canvas material for aesthetics. The extra-low voltage system works by efficiently converting solar electricity directly into infrared which heats all of the objects it shines on, so heat is stored in the fabric of the building. A small wood burner provides additional warmth keeping the well-insulated cabin toasty.
The flat-pack design and off-grid systems means the cabin can be situated off the beaten track, where other cabins dare not go! www.wild-hart.co.uk
