If you've ever assembled furniture (especially the IKEA variety), then you'll appreciate the frame of reference architect Ian Kent uses to describe a tiny house kit he's developed for potential homeowners the world over.

The Nomad Micro Home measures just 10×10 feet and features a living room, kitchen and an upstairs sleeping loft, and it costs just $25,000 to build, excluding eco-friendly add-ons like rooftop solar energy panels, rainwater collection system and compost toilet.

But the real draw of the Nomad, as its name implies, is that it can be assembled using a cordless drill and moved to a new location on a whim.

"It is so small and lightweight that the buyer can ship it anywhere in the world, and once it arrives, anyone with some basic carpentry skills can assemble it on their own," says Jetson Green's Christine Walsh.
