We haven’t featured Northwestern’s off grid tiny house project since April 2011.
Team CASITA’s mission is to create a sustainable and efficient home using smart design, electricity and plumbing.
The little structure is being built on a trailer. It’s just 128 square feet and has plans for solar panels and rainwater collection.
The roof is already covered with solar panels and there’s a battery bank to store all of the power.
Rainwater is collected for filtration and storage through the roof and four awnings.
They have a 500 gallon water pillow they plan to use to store the water.
Here’s one of the latest pictures after part of the solar panel installation.
