Solar-Powered Tiny Home Lets You Live Entirely Off the Grid (Video)
Living in a tiny home doesn't have to mean sacrificing style or comfort, as evidenced by this tiny stunner created by former boat builder and current owner of tiny home company Room to Move, Jeff Hobbs.
Thanks to a 600-watt solar power system and a rainwater collection system on the roof, the self-sustaining home is designed to be entirely off the grid. Water is heated by a solar collector and a woodstove, while laundry equipment is stored in a utility shed on the side of the house. Jeff designed the home for client Briar Hale, and Living Big In A Tiny House's YouTube channel recently posted a video tour of the space.
A functional floor plan allows for a surprisingly spacious layout. Storage cabinets are expertly hidden under the L-shaped sofa, and Hale installed shelves in the den, kitchen and bathroom for extra space. But we think the salvaged wood details really take center stage. "It was important to me to live in a very wooden house with native woods that have been recycled, and to have a master craftsman do it and have something built that will last 100 years," says Hale.
With the homey, personal touches that Hale provided, this tiny house has transformed from a carpenter's masterpiece to a cozy-living dream.
This incredible off-the-grid Tiny Home, constructed by boat builder and cabinet maker Jeff Hobbs really has taken Tiny House construction to the next level. It’s packed with clever design features, high quality materials and sustainable technologies.
