Kenny’s Dodge Dualie Home on Wheels: Contest Submission!


Kenny Foust submitted the first design to Simple Solar Homesteading’s awesome “Off-Grid Houses on the Move” Contest, which runs now through October. If you have an off-grid portable housing design (or actual structure!) you’d like to submit, you can see the rules for the contest here. Winners get prizes so it’s worth a try!

He submitted pictures of a real 24-long house-on-wheels that he built on a 1976 Doge dualie. It’s 7.5 feet wide, and 9.5 feet tall. Inside the basic structure has a hot water heater and 20 gallon tank for showers, as well as a DIY composting toilet. The rest of the home runs on solar power with a dorm fridge, microwave, induction cooktop and coffee maker. It even has a fold up back deck! Cool.

Check out the photos below, and get more build details over a Simple Solar Homesteading.
