This 192 sq. ft. off-grid tiny cabin design was submitted as part of Lamar’s off grid tiny house design contest where you can win up to $500.
But this 12′ x 16′ tiny house is designed to be built using 2×6 construction to add extra insulation because the home will be heated with solar power.
There will be a ‘soda can’ type solar heater as well as using natural window solar heating by design. It is also set up to receive wind power and collect rainwater.
A propane tank can be used just in case solar water heated water is not available and it can also be used for cooking if needed.
