OFFGRID-INSTYLE homes are designed and detailed to be as affordable, durable, and energy-efficient as possible; while also being modern, stylish, no bigger than necessary, and easily buildable anywhere in the world.  They can also be easily modified to comply with maximum Australian bush fire and cyclone regulations.  And when correctly orientated, combined with at least double-glazed windows and airtight construction, they are thermally comfortable throughout the year in both hot and cold climates.  Because of their low energy consumption, in off-grid situations they can be all-electrically powered with solar panels, battery, and a small backup generator in most locations.
