The Zoobox is a fun, innovative and fully off-grid micro cabin with solar power, an energy wheel, well water, a wood stove, and propane for hot water and the heated floor. But what is truly unique about this cabin is that it’s interactive.

The space saving bed is on a pulley system so that it can be stored on the ceiling during the day. The climbing wall and fireman’s pole help you get active indoors, and the energy wheel is hooked up to a dynamo so that you charge the cabin’s batteries as you walk.
The zoobox is powered by solar panels, comes equipped with a rain-fall harvested shower, and even an energy-generating bicycle which powers the popcorn maker and television. The bicycle gives guests an idea just how much power it takes to generate electricity – 15 minutes of non-stop pedaling for some popcorn or a movie.
Finally, the bathtub is in the living room so that bathing can include beautiful views outdoors. The Zoobox is a 4-season cabin for rent at Le Vertendre in Eastman, Quebec where they have a beautiful property with a lake, and trails to hike into each cabin./Exploring Alternatives
