The Tiny Project is a house on wheels built by web designer Alek Lisefski. The house measures 8 feet by 20 feet, and for the most part intends to be a dwelling that has a low environment footprint, and is incredibly efficient.
The house has a passive solar energy system, several windows and all glass doors to fill it up with natural light, propane fueled stoves and on demand hot water, washer/dryer unit, and refrigerator with freezer; plus insulation all around for increased efficiency.
The Tiny House is currently inhabited by the designer, his girlfriend, and their dog. According to Alek, once the house is in a more permanent location, it can have more solar panels and a water collection system to be as independent as possible. For now, the house needs a water hose and extension cord from the main house to keep its operation.
