$10k DIY Off Grid Solar Tiny House

Categories: Tiny House

I love looking at peoples designs and sketches. To see that draft that shows the first ideas before anything is built makes me feel happy, it's the potential that is represented and I enjoy them enormously.

This 185 sq. ft. off-grid solar tiny house design was submitted as part of LaMar’s off grid tiny house design contest where you could win up to $500 if you submitted a design.

Jonathan Marcoux’s squared eco house is 12’3″ x 12’3″. It has a water harvesting system, solar heating, solar panels, aquaponics farming system, and more.

Construction will be primarily 2″x4″. Heating will be provided mainly by firewood but a propane system can be integrated as a back up. Water heating in the summer is taken care of by a solar roof water heater. In the winter the wood stove can be used to heat water. And a propane instant hot water heater can also be installed.
