This tiny solar house was designed and built by the Minnesota Renewable Energy Society.
I found them on Facebook not long ago and wanted to share their tiny home with you.
It has three Silicon Energy PV modules, solar air heat, and even solar hot water. Did I mention this is a passive solar tiny house?
The SIP (Structural Insulated Panels) came from The Chuba Company who you can also find on Facebook.
It’s 8 x 16 and has additional storage in the back to store power with batteries. There’s also extra room there for hot water storage and any other extras.
This solar tiny house was made possible thanks to Laura Cina, Joel Cina, Chris Burrington, Timothy Pendergast, Larissa Starr Maranell, Andrew Steven Richardson, The Chuba Company and Applied Energy Innovations.
I encourage you to enjoy the rest of the home below:
Below are the SIP panels going up which already come super insulated. What a great way to build a house, right? You just got to have some help!
Again, the SIP panels going up thanks to the help of three people.
They used a forklift to get the SIP roof panels on.
Finally the housewrap to keep the structure moisture tight.
Below you can see that almost all of the siding is done but the roof still needs to be finished.
Nice work everybody!
Below is the tiny house all finished and on display.
I like how it looks better with the trailer and wheels showing.
