A chest solar refrigerator or freezer might be a great way for you to save space (and energy) in your tiny house kitchen.
This type of fridge is great for tiny homes on wheels. (It’s already been proven on sailboats, hasn’t it?)
A small chest style fridge can save you space because it’s a it opens upward (see below).
This means you can design it so it can be installed right into your kitchen counter.
And you can also run them on a 12 volt battery system.
I almost forgot to mention that they’re VERY energy efficient and can even run on a solar panel!
