PassivDom is a Ukrainian startup that is taking house construction to a new level. The company is the maker of the world’s first autonomously manufactured house. It is also a mobile and transportable house that runs off-grid on solar power.
The innovators set out to manufacture portable, off-grid homes that come fully equipped and furnished with smart home features. As 3D printing continues to make headway in housing, PassivDom posits itself as a creator of small, modular homes that can be easily transported and installed anywhere.
This smart home runs completely on solar energy and features a water storage system that will allow its denizens to live completely off-grid, with zero utility bills. Its designers chose advanced materials such as carbon and fiberglass for the frame, in order to deliver a high thermal performance. The frame is six times stronger than steel and is as sturdy as traditional brick walls!
Some of the innovative features of the PassivDom house include Zero Carbon emission, 3D-printed prefabricated frame, autonomous off-grid power, self-learning smart home system, and mobile modular house. Household appliances only use electricity generated by photovoltaic cells. The solar panels are installed to satisfy the house’s needs, which include heating and cooling, air purification, water and carbon dioxide control.
The off-grid house’s engineering systems are listed below:
• air recuperation system
• heat pump for heating and cooling with a remote-controlled thermostat
• air quality medic HEPA system
• photovoltaic off-grid system powered by batteries
• gray water filtration system with heat recovery
• heat energy storage
• water tank
Occupants of the off-grid house can use devices that are connected to the Internet of Things network. They will be able to manage these devices remotely via mobile an iPhone and Android device. An online service system allows for distance monitoring and fault prevention.
As of this writing, PassivDom only builds 36-square-meter and 72-square-meter units. If you want a bare-bones small (36m) version of the house which has no furniture, kitchen, and bathroom, you need to shell out $33,000, according to the company’s website. It will cost you $44,000 and $67,000 if you go for the standard and full-featured versions, respectively. The latter requires connection to power, water, and sewage line. The larger, double options (72m) sell for $108,000 for the off-grid and $85,300 for the standard and bare-bones versions.
The company’s team of engineers and designers use 3D-printing to create the house frame, walls, roof, and ceiling, and floor. When compared to traditional construction techniques, 3D printing is cheaper and more efficient, says CEO Maxim Gerbut. Assembly of the house – astonishingly – only takes a day so that the owners can move in the evening! The company also boasts that every part of the house is recyclable. And since the house does not need fixed foundations, building permits could potentially be bypassed in some locations.
The PassivDom house is an ideal alternative to would-be homeowners who prefer to live in a private residence or secluded cottage. Its modularity allows easy installation on a piece of land without the usual hassles of house construction.

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.
Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.
We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.
Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
