This is Rob’s off-grid, passive solar tiny cabin in New Mexico.
It’s a 12′ by 48′ cabin including the porches. From the outside, you’ll notice it has a slanted shed-style roof with rainwater collection. Inside, you’ll find a living area, dining, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. All designed and built with passive solar in mind to conserve energy on cooling. What do you think?

This shows nothing but a large room. No bedroom, or bathroom is designated.
We will hopefully get more pictures in soon that show more! In the mean time there are some pretty cool interiors here to explore: https://tinyhousetalk.com/category/interiors/
Are these boxes along the wall with the Celtic knotting medallions some form of “prairie shutters”? If not, what are they?
I was wondering about those too. They look like insulated shutters. Nice idea.
They are indeed insulated shutters. Used these instead of multi-paned glass.
I am in NM as well and I see some great ideas. Shutters here aren’t a bad idea with the high winds we often get. Well done. I wish I could communicate to see How and zoning. I know where I am at once outside the city limits there is no code enforcement
Am outside of Silver City in the boonies. You mean to tell me that there are rules and regs involved in building a home? Oh my!
What city is Rob N’s cabin in?
I like this space. Minimal furnishings. Maybe add a cast iron ship’s stove for cold nights. Seems like a nice quiet spot.
