It’s called THIMBY and you can learn more about it right here.
We are Tiny House in My Backyard (THIMBY), an interdisciplinary team of UC Berkeley graduate and undergraduate students that worked together to design and build an affordable, off-grid, 100% solar-powered “tiny” house.1
This is Fred Shultz’ fantastic tiny home for his family of three. He built this off-the-grid masterpiece by himself for about $45,000, $12,000 of which he spent on the solar panels that keep the home running.
Outside, you’ll notice this tiny house on wheels is covered in corrugated steel siding and sports two awnings for extra outdoor living space. The solar panels decorate the roof of this 107 square-foot home that took him about four-and-a-half years to design and build. When you go inside, you’ll find pull-out storage beneath his “lounge” or couch area with lovely red cushions. There’s even a table tucked under the loft that can be removed and taken down to create a large dining room table, or even a bed for guests. They have a wood stove to heat the space that doubles as their hot-water heater and built-in shelves to store their kitchen essentials. Their baby daughter has a loft space with plenty of safety gates and a loft across the way provides a sleeping space for mom and dad. Their bathroom includes a composting toilet and a large Japanese-style tub.
