Mint Tiny Homes, a company based in the city of Vancouver in Canada, has devised a unique tiny house that makes use of a metal frame rather than the customary wood.

This unique tiny house's steel frame allows for reduced weight. Additionally, the use of steel framing can also work to boost the home's thermal performance in conjunction with foam insulation use. While a comparable wooden framed house would have weight around 6,803 kg, Mint Tiny Homes' creation weighs in at only 5,896 kg.

Light weight aside, this unique tiny house also offers a desirable living space that includes a spacious main living area and well-equipped kitchen and bathroom.

This tiny house proves that quality amenities, thermal efficiency and affordability can absolutely be had in one singular package.
