When the builders behind the ProtoHaus wanted to deliver a message about the social issues related to home ownership, they decided to do it through a stunning tiny house which was built over the summer of 2009. This 125 square foot house is 22’ long and was built with sustainability, functionality, and aesthetics in mind and mostly from recycled and reclaimed materials. The model is open to visitors to share their experience.
The house was built on a trailer bed that can withstand 14,000 pounds and can be used off-grid thanks to the solar and wind system power supplies.
The inside was kept mostly white to make the space feel larger and bright. The reclaimed hardwood floors add warmth though so as well as the tiny fireplace. A foldout table is across from the fireplace as well as built-in storage cabinets and two comfy chairs.
The kitchen is beautiful with white cabinets and open shelving. A compact oven/stove combo is nestled into a window nook and the stainless steel sink is on the opposite wall.
A loft is above the living area and can be reached by a moveable ladder. The pitched roof gives you plenty of headroom despite the small space.
