If you haven’t heard of Northwestern University’s tiny house before, this post will show you. We also covered part of the construction process a while back over on this post, in case you missed it before.
Not only that, we’ll also let you know where you can take a tour of it in real life if you’re ever in the Chicago area.
Right now, as I write this, it’s at the city’s Museum of Science and Industry ready for you to tour.
In 2010, a special group of students in engineering and construction at Northwestern University decided they would design and build a tiny house on a trailer.
Today it’s known as the Northwestern Tiny House Project, which you should visit real quick and “Like” on Facebook. Who knows? Maybe with enough likes we can inspire them to build another one!
What do you think about the large awnings that they added to the house? I thought it was a unique way to extend the outside space a bit and they can also come in handy if you wanted to add more solar panels to help power the house.
More of Lee Hogan’s amazing aerial photography of Chicago is available for you to check out here.
