Got half a day to waste? Why not build a house? You can do just that with one of these gorgeous mirrored prefab houses from Estonian company ?-?-D.
These homes feature mirrored facades covering more than half of the outside. Which makes them especially cool and sleek in natural environments. But they're not just pretty to look at on the outside. The inside is gorgeous, too.
For starters, all of the homes feature every amenity of a studio apartment. Custom beds, kitchenettes and bathrooms come standard. Plus, the modern dwellings feature heated floors, LED lighting and a Bose sound system. That's a lot of punch in the 200 square-foot package. Which, did we mention, only takes eight hours to install?
Oh, and at only $36,000, they're easy on the wallet too.
?-?-D originally came about during the Airbnb boom as small scale rentals and hotel units. The company focuses on those who see them as a solid investment in the tourism industry. But the tiny houses can easily serve many other purposes. They all feature steel, insulated glass and thermally treated wood.
The back wall of the houses is all wood. And the insides feature all the necessary "Plug N' Play" connections. Currently, these homes need electric, water and sewage hookups. But the company is fast at work on completely independent solutions.
And to keep birds and glass safe, the company started installing artificial eagles on the roof (which you can't see from ground level). That tactic in particular proves useful to keep birds from smacking into the sides of the house. The issue first arose last year, but the company says the method prevents bird deaths. In fact, no birds have died from crashing into the structures since Sept. 2016.
These sleek, amazing homes could provide the perfect getaway in nature (or anywhere else you can find room to pop one up).
