OUR STORY

Basecamp IJmuiden is the first tiny house eco-resort of the Netherlands, now sporting 32 houses right next to the beach. The development of the resort is continuous and experimental. As we speak, we are busy creating a self-sufficient, energy neutral Basecamp. This means harvesting energy from the sun and wind, storing it in green batteries and other storage options and distributing it to the tiny houses using a smart grid. Basecamp IJmuiden is the blueprint for future developments of new Basecamps (inter)nationally. We are now working on new locations close to ‘Zadar’, Croatia and ‘Dar es Salaam’, the former capital of Tanzania.
