What Makes Zerosquared Different?
"sURE, WE COULD HAVE BEEN YET ANOTHER CONTRACTING COMPANY TO BUY A TRAILER, BUILD A STRUCTURE ON IT, FORCE YOU TO CLIMB A LADDER INTO A LOFT AT NIGHT AND CALL OURSELVES A TINY HOME COMPANY...BUT WE DIDN'T"
OUR DESIGN INNOVATIONS:
1. INTEGRATED SLIDE OUT MODULES
Zerosquared is the first and only tiny home company to feature two integrated opposing production slide out modules that add 120 sqft to a traditional tiny home main floor plan in a road legal towing platform
1. We took what is GREAT about modular housing;
efficient resource usage,
2. We then removed what ISN'T GREAT about modular housing;
shipping multiple modules,
expensive set up on site,
3. We took what is GREAT about the recreational vehicle industry;
an expanded main floor living area in a road legal towing width,
MAIN floor bedrooms!
4. We then removed what ISN'T GREAT about the recreational vehicle industry;
not built for full time living,
Q: But don't slides leak?
A: RV slides can, but not ours.
Our proprietary slide out modules are designed as a residential system to residential standards
The space between our moving space and the main body of the house is triple sealed to repel water, air, debris and pests, and has a built-in drainage plane to move the water to the outside of the house (think roof downspout)
Still concerned? We offer up to a 5yr warranty on the building envelope against leaks.
Q: but what about the loss of heat and cold?
A: The heat loss from the space between the main house and slide module is no more than the losses you would see through the frame of a small window.
The triple seal system prevents the loss of conditioned air through convection (drafts) and the gap surface area is less than 1% of the overall wall area of the home so any losses due to conduction (temp passing through the wal is imperceptible
Q: ok, but what about wear, tear & cost of repair?
Q: Do you need our fancy automated slide system for a one time set up?
A: No, you don't. We have an optional onsite residential setup that will take more time than our 90 second automated system, but will still have you in the home same day.
OUR DESIGN INNOVATIONS:
2. ELEVATOR LOFT
Q: SO YOU PUT SLIDES IN A
A: Short answer is no. The principles behind the moving of space at site is derived from the benefits of an RV slide out system, however we have engineered the moving of space into a residential solution.
Our space is moved via 12V electric motors + simple robust rack and pinion gearing.
A control system manages the movement of the space to ensure it stops where it needs to, to guarantee a perfect seal each and every time.
