HOBOKEN, N.J.(CBSNewYork) — A house of tomorrow was being built in Hoboken on Saturday.

Students at Stevens Tech were working on a high-tech living space dubbed “Eco-Habit” as part of a competition sponsored by the Department of Energy.

The goal of Eco-Habit is to create a house that doesn’t rely on any energy source that isn’t generated by solar panels.

“The whole idea behind this project is that it’s smart living. We tried to, everything is as efficient and space-saving as possible for this project,” one student explained.

Once the home is complete it will be disassembled and shipped to California for judging in the October competition.
