Northwestern Tiny House Project’s mission is to build this sustainable home by making their own improvements onto Tumbleweed Tiny Houses’ efficient use of space with new ideas and innovations in the areas of materials, electricity, and plumbing.

They call themselves Team CASITA. This particular home is just 128 square feet and yes: they’re using a trailer as a foundation.

The design includes:

  • Electrical and plumbing systems
  • Solar panels with battery bank
  • Water tank placement
  • Rainwater collection system

The home is planned to be finished this school year and the students have put together an excellent eBook (report) that you can download which details everything, including materials, layout, plumbing, composting, electricity, resources, and more.
