Mycelium House   

Welcome To The Mushroom House! 

By far the most imaginative, sustainable Tiny House design yet!

 Literally, this 64 sq foot house was grown from organic matter, mycelium, which is the vegetative part of a fungus.

 This stuff makes up not just the insulation of the walls, but the structural form of the building.

 It was all grown in one piece, inside the wall cavities that already had wiring and plumbing. The mycelium "knit the wall together", glued the tongue and groove pine boards together. It forms the structure and it's the insulation all at once.

 Not only is it organic matter that is biodegradable, that can be "grown" instead of manufactured- but it comes with other benefits: it has outstanding thermal performance, it's fire resistant, and has no nasty things like VOC's or "aldehydes".

 This is a sustainability fairy tale come true!
