Carpenter and retired boat builder Jeff Hobbs, known for his work with New Zealand-based studio Room to Move, has built a wonderfully high-tech and functional home that is made out of materials guaranteed to provide reliable and consistent insulation.

Measuring in at 23.95 square meters, the tiny home was constructed using structural insulated panels built from foam and plywood, in addition to recycled wood-based materials. The tiny home is equipped with numerous off-grid elements that make it exceptionally eco-friendly. However, the most interesting feature of this home is the liberal use of structural insulated panels that are strong and durable yet lightweight and great at insulation.

Ultimately, Jeff Hobbs' wonderfully innovative tiny home project proves how the use of insulated panels can result in better tiny living and saved space.
