If you’re looking for something that’s cozy and livable, perhaps this is the way to go – particularly if you’re off the beaten path or in need of something that’s off-grid. Available options include a composting waste system, gray water waste system, solar photovoltaics, etc.

LEED Cabins intends to build these homes as green as possible, depending on client needs. Products used in these homes include radiant floor heating, FSC flooring, energy efficient windows and doors, LED lighting, recycled glass mosaic tiles, “green” insulation, and no-VOC coatings.
