Tiny House Expedition, who just took over the helm at Tiny House Build and Tiny House Plans, takes us to Austin, Texas, where they’re giving us a video tour of the Kasita tiny house.

It’s a modular tiny home designed by Jeff Wilson, a teacher who converted and lived in a dumpster turned micro home one year, and was later inspired to develop this high-tech and portable housing solution called Kasita.

    looks like a mailbox

      A mailbox or a fish tank. But what struck me the most is the idea of using a computer with light coming in from all angles. You would not be able to see the screen!

    the 5 shades of darkness glass would certainly be a necessity! wish he had explained it further though

      Just look up blackout glass, it’s a type of smart glass technology with multiple states from transparent, opaque, solar tinted, to blackout.

    If none of those windows, in the glass box, can open, I would not like to stay in this house during summer. It would be like bing trapped in a closed windowed car – stinking hot no matter if it were smart glass or not. The heat would still enter the building.

      No, that would only be the case for regular glass in a house that has no AC and no air circulation. But windows can have UV and heat reflective layers/coatings, triple pane windows can have an R-Value of over 6, and AC systems can more than compensate, or the home can simply be well ventilated. Windows that can black out will also reduce the amount of light coming into the home, just like having curtains…

    What an arrogant prick, talking about “the masses” – a Hillary Clinton think-a-like.

    While I can appreciate the design and layout of this tiny home, the glass floor in the desk area would freak me out . I bit too many windows for my own liking , but thats just my own humble opinion, The beauty of tiny homes is that they can be tailored to the individual , sort of like a good suit .
