I’m so excited to show you this solar powered modified Tumbleweed Epu tiny house on wheels.
As you can tell it’s been slightly modified. First with the barn style roof, different sized windows, larger front door and open porch.
If you study the Epu plans real quick you’ll notice that the interior was left almost the same. They just changed a few things a little here and there but the layout is basically the same.
I encourage you to get the rest of the tour below:

World’s Most Visited Tiny House on Wheels?
This little house is actually very popular. It might even hold the record for most visitors because it’s home to the Solar Living Institute in Northern California which gets approximately 200,000 visitors a year!
And It’s Also Been Lived In Full Time?
And you’ll be glad to know that Ross Beck, of The Solar Living Institute, lived in the home 5 days a week for two years while he was the Executive Director for the institute.
During that time his house was 75 miles away from the new office. So he was able to save all of that time commuting.
Meanwhile, he got to learn a lot about living with less. Here’s just some of what he had to say about that.
What I Learned from Living Tiny for Two Years
“In the tiny house, I learned how easy it was to live in such a small carbon footprint, because I had so much less stuff to deal with and everything had its place. I could focus on my projects so much better because of fewer distractions and maintenance. The Tiny House was also easy to heat, fast to cool, and nature was literally only a couple of steps away. I could take off on an adventure at any time because the Tiny House was always ready to go.” (Source)
