Solar-powered tiny house doesn’t skimp on the home comforts

by • July 3, 2016 • 13s Comments

Tiny houses are all of balance. The additional compact they are, the less effortless they tend to be. Go too big and you may as well only live in a normal-sized home. Greater Chattanooga, Tennessee-based firm Wind River Tiny Homes not long ago accomplished an off-grid tiny house that seems to get this balance only right, offering ample storage space space, a really great interior layout, and a lot of home comforts too.

The Chimera measures 8 x 24 ft (2.4 x 7.62 m) and is clad in stained grey pine. It sports a metal roof and an exterior storage space box, while the glazing is houtilized in aluminum clad wooden window frames.

Entering via the sole door, visitors are greeted with a snug living space showcasing a couch with integrated storage space that folds out into a guest bed. Heating comes in the form of a tiny wood-burning stove and a mini-split heating and rading process, while a ceiling fan in addition helps to store the interior rad. Propane is utilized for the hot water heater and cooker.

The main living area leads to a relatively sizeable looking kitchen. This comes with a four-burner cooktop and oven, a microwave, a slide-out pantry, a folding cedar dining table, and concrete countertops. The entire interior of the tiny home looks finished to a quite high standard.

At the opposite end of the main living area lies a tiny bathroom with composting toilet, sink, and a tiled shower.

A sizeable staircase with built-in shelving, cupboards, a washer/dryer, and a fridge leads up to the main loft sleeping area, that comes with a queen-sized bed and yet additional storage space.

A secondary storage space loft area is accessed by climbing a custom pipe ladder and in addition houses the onboard solar power management process, that comes with battery backup and inverters.

The Chimera pictured has may already been sold and fetched US$84,000. Tiny homes by the firm begin at $25,000.
