While this isn’t a residential tiny house, it’s still a cool use of “tiny technology” in the real world! The City of Aspen, Colorado was in need of a building to act as a check-point for passengers carpooling (they get a free parking voucher in the city if they carpool from outside the city lines), but because it needed to be easy to move whenever needed, it also had to be self-sustaining and mobile. They needed an off-grid carpool kiosk, and Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses delivered.
Because of the company’s experience with off-grid technology and designing/building itty bitty spaces on wheels, they won the bid with the city and delivered a compact mobile office that can withstand frigid Aspen winters with ease. Inside it has an office area, small kitchenette, and a half bath. The whole thing runs on solar, and is heated with a mini-split system. You can read more about the specifics of the build at Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses.
