Built by a world-renowned thermal solar and hydronic expert, this gem of a tiny home would be perfect for an extra family member, remote office or vacation home (includes two single beds)! Colorful, and nicely finished with loads of practical details, including radiantly warm wall and floors, multiple 12-volt outlets, HDMI connection, a space-making “murphy” bed, and spacious kitchen area. PV solar panels/battery storage provides extra oomph. The mechanical systems are super-efficient and installed by licensed contractors. The tag-along deck provides extra room for sunset gazing and container gardening.
“In 1983, I bought a piece of property in Whitefish, MT. It had a cabin on it. 11*15 feet, kinda, as it wasn’t quite plumb. The ‘foundation’ was four rocks, so the place tipped just a bit as you walked from one end to the other. The term hadn’t been coined yet, but it was a tiny house. I loved it. The tiny house movement inspired me to apply my solar, plumbing, carpentry and welding skills to building a fine, functional and fun little home.”
