Sustainably sourced bamboo flooring, re-purposed gas piping, and kitchen units that were once bottle tops, are all features that might easily be missed when first viewing this property.
Instead you might notice the abundance of natural light pouring in through numerous double glazed windows, the pleasant temperature and freshness of air silently circulating, and the excitement on your face as you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror – which places you either outside the storage room under the stairs,
or in the bathroom.
Things you might take for granted are instant hot and cold running water, a flushing toilet, washing machine, an induction hob, fan assisted oven, fridge, dishwasher, and Wi-Fi. The building is connected to mains services providing access to all the mod-cons.
What you might not realise is this particular building only costs £75,000 and produces a net yield of 14% through short-term lets and B&B. With its eco credentials, heightened sense of space, and aesthetic appeal – everything about this building feels good.
NaviHo (Navigable Home) is part of the Tiny House movement that originated in the United States and is gaining popularity in the UK. Setting houses on transportable foundations allows them to be moved to where they are needed, and while it is a good idea to check with your local council, planning permission is typically not required.
Facilitating a flexible and affordable living solution comes into its own for first time buyers as a bridge between living with parents and living independently, as well as for those wishing to avoid onward chains
in-between property transactions.
NaviHo is designed to be used as a normal house, but gives people the opportunity to live in more idyllic countryside settings, and the option to move their home should the need arise.
Freelancers who work for several months near one town or city may be required to relocate for their next job, while those who are able to work remotely may prefer a change of scenery every so often. NaviHo facilitates a wide range of possibilities.
NaviHo Directors, Neil Hall-McLean and Leo De Watts, anticipate the biggest potential for the business will be in the leisure and holiday home markets, followed by the growing demand for environmentally responsible and affordable accommodation.
NaviHo are currently taking pre-orders for their next production run of buildings which includes an off-grid variant, together with reserving plots of land on behalf of customers who require that service also.
