Sustainable, Off-Grid Modern Tiny Cabin in Devon, England

This is Rupert McKelvie’s fantastic model design of a sustainable, off-the-grid, “efficient yet aesthetic” cabin for rent on the wooded banks of the River Teign. He has a workshop, Out of the Valley, where he will create more of these fantastic tiny homes.

Outside, you’ll notice a quaint rectangular home covered in horizontal wooden clapboard. The metal roof tops it off and two huge sliding doors provide light and entrance into the home.

On the inside, you’ll find a rare luxury in tiny homes: a bed on ground level. Although there is also a loft space for storage, you can sleep in the first level instead. The home is heated by an adorable tiny wood-burning stove, which makes it off-the-grid and toasty in the cooler months. The house features an exposed-beam ceiling and a corner dinette with cushioned bench seating. The bathroom contains a beautiful stone tile bath with rain shower head, and a sink mirrored on the outside of the house as well. A covered porch overlooks the rolling English landscape reminiscent of the Shire.

    Wow, what a lovely, lovely home. I love the beams, especially the ones that are curved. The living room/kitchen area is so pretty. The whole place is so cozy looking and looks even more so with the land they are on. Well done!!

    Once again ,its the bathroom that detracts for me. Love everything else especially being able to sleep downstairs and have storage

    I love it. I like the rustic bathroom too.

    A woodstove alone does not constitute ‘off-grid’. Off-grid means self -sustaining, which means no electric or water hookup also.

      I have running water and it is not from being…..”on grid”. I have a well that is run by a generator. It gets pumped up to the cistern and then gravity fed to the house.

    Just love this. Where is frig?

    Phyllis,

    How many gallons do you store in the cistern and where do you have it/how supported. I also saw 4 solar panels, what do you electrify with them?
