Texas Modular Home Will Run on Rainwater and Sunshine Alone

texas-modular-home

Can you believe that all you need for making everything in your home work is only sunshine and rainwater? This Texas modular house proves it to be a great idea turned into reality. The designs you’re looking at were made by a team of creative students. The goal was to provide with a modular home which is at the same time off-grid. The project of those from NexusHaus team is cleverly projected to function in areas with lots of sunlight and it is thought to be highly necessary especially in drought-prone areas. Besides the slick design of the modules, there are some neat innovations like drinking rainwater reuse and graywater recycling featured in the house project. Browse the images to get a better understanding.

“Although the Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon competition is focused on renewable energy, one of the teams chosen to build a house for this fall’s event will take resource conservation a step further.

The University of Texas at Austin, partnering with Germany’s Technische Universitat Munchen, will construct a home that is net zero usage for energy as well as water. The team’s NexusHaus, which will be on display during the competition held Oct. 8 to 18 in Irvine, Calif., will be one of the country’s first water-independent dwellings, and its design could have major ramifications for home builders in drought-prone areas and beyond. Its concepts have takeaways for builders across the country as more jurisdictions allow measures such as potable rainwater reuse and graywater recycling.”
