Our premier model, the Paniola reflects a careful approach to detailed craftsmanship. Its finishes of Sapele wood custom cabinetry, bamboo flooring, and granite-like countertops lend a fine touch to this Habitat.

In keeping with our dedication to self-sustainable living, the Paniola also uses solar photovoltaic energy and includes a handcrafted water catchment tank. Its dimensions are 16 x 9 x 14 ft.; the price ranges from $55,000 to $65,000 depending on custom finishes.​

The fully insulated Paniola’s functional versatility and comfort catch the eye equally. These include a refrigerator, double-burner propane stove, and on-demand hot water heater. The Paniola’s large windows coax bursts of sunlight into the home, cooling or warming its interior. Occupants also enjoy the comfort of a dining area, nice-sized kitchen, and office---and a comfortable, windowed sleeping loft above the kitchen.

The Paniola is being lived in full time but is easy to visit in Waimea (aka Kamuela) on the Big Island of Hawaii. Just call to schedule an appointment.
