If your favorite show is Tiny House, Big Living on HGTV then you are well aware of the Tiny House movement. People live with less these days and are focusing heavily on sustainability, eco-friendly, and affordable housing options. ECLIPSE is determined to bring the tiny house movement to the forefront of the housing industry by offering the most sustainable, eco-friendly, affordable home currently available.
ECLIPSE Cottages currently offers two different models; the Comet and the Alpha. The Comet is a 128 sq. ft. compact model and The Alpha is a 399 sq. ft. park model. This is significantly under the average traditional home size of about 2,600 square feet, but people are finding that is all they need to live a comfortable abundant lifestyle. Less square footage means less area to heat and cool, less area to clean, and leaves you with much less maintenance needed. This allows you more time to enjoy the important things in life. Less square footage will also equate to a much lower energy bill.
Fewer light bulbs
Less square footage also means less area to keep lit. Light bulbs that are typically used these days are LED’s, which use much less energy than a standard incandescent bulb. Our homes also come standard with wireless smart switches so you can control your lights from just about anywhere, including your phone. We’ve structured our homes to make the most out of natural lighting, which in turn means less energy needed to illuminate and warm your cottage.
Every ECLIPSE Cottage comes with our proprietary steel solar roofing and a 5kw battery backup. (upgrades to bigger battery backups are available) In most cases, a 5kw battery backup is more than enough energy to power your home throughout the day. Depending on your personal energy requirements, this could allow you to stay completely off grid. ECLIPSE proprietary steel solar roofing is extremely durable and built to withstand the harshest weather. Owning an ECLIPSE Cottage is not only environmentally friendly, it will also significantly lower your carbon footprint.
ECLIPSE Cottages uses structural insulated panels (SIPs) for their walls and roofing. This provides phenomenal insulation and offers a completely airtight envelope. Having an airtight envelope means no inside air is escaping and no outside air seeps in. This ultra-efficient paneling means less energy is needed to heat and cool your home. Our cottages are so air tight you could essentially heat the home with a candle. We then fit every home with an ERV system (energy recovery ventilator) to ensure the air inside your home stays fresh and clean. SIP Paneling + ERV System + steel solar roofing = extremely reduced energy bill.
