This Tiny House in Portland Follows The Sun

Categories: Tiny House

This built version is tied to city services with a flush toilet, the waste going through a rotating coupling used in the natural gas industry that is in the dead center of the turntable. Electricity and water connections are the reason it only turns 359 degrees, so that they don't get all twisted up, but Benjamin Kaiser tells TreeHugger that "for the next version, however, we have that licked too."

There really are lots of advantages to a rotating tiny house; Just as Shaw found, you can follow the sun all day (although it looks like those kids really have to work to make it happen) avoid the sun on the hottest days and capture it on the coldest. And it looks like a lot of fun.
