NyumbaBora Ltd acknowledges the ‘Tiny House’ prototype designed by the UN-Habitat that approaches the challenges of sustainable and affordable construction. The two bed-roomed tiny house is 56 square metres inclusive of the verandah. Its foundation varies depending on the design and frame structures are built using tetra pack panels and steel for both columns and beams.

The house is installed with solar panels and a bio digester system that generates energy. It is fitted with rain water gutters that harvest rain water into storage tanks. The design also gives room for aquaponics or vertical farming.

This house costs between KES 1.8 million to KES 2.2 million to construct.
