An added bonus is that with careful siting, Le Refuge S500 has been designed to make the most of passive solar gain as a source of free & sustainable heating – making it possible for a LEED® Platinum certified, Novoclimat, Net Zero Energy or Off-Grid tiny house when suitably equipped. This high specification modular prefab kit is ideal for use as a holiday home, an independent living unit for a growing family or as a guest or rental suite if your property has the space. These affordable prefab eco homes can even be specified as a 2 bed design. 

A true concentration of talent, the home is the result of an exceptional collaboration between renowned Montreal Architects PARA-SOL, and the accomplished manufacturer of modular prefabricated buildings, ÉNERGÉCO CONCEPT.
