Our next featured Tiny House rests on a flatbed trailer. Built by Jenine Alexander with the help of her friend Amy Hutto the space includes both upper and lower sleeping lofts as well as full trailer hook-ups for electric propane and water. The home can also nicely accommodate any solar wind or hydro power system.
We begin with the Monte-Silo House in Utah which consists of two metal grain silos placed back to back for maximum space. The front silo is the largest and generous windows allow the home’s inhabitants to take in the view of the Provo River. The second-level deck provides shading for the floor below.
Many of the Paradigm dwelling features celebrate the environment including a solar panel rainwater collector rainwater tank greenhouse composting unit with waterless toilet and Energy Star appliances. Not to mention each home has a super insulated shell.
This was achieved by employing along with aesthetic interiors and a fine balance of various building materials to create the desired outcome. The house uses a fine blend of wood and stone to create a semi-minimalist interior that are clad in gentle and sober shades. It has all-white walls that bring out the natural beauty and warmth of wood to perfection while the décor and furnishings have also been kept pristine to further accentuate this effect.
Below we see the finished product which features a smart load panel that uploads real-time data about the home’s energy consumption. Silo House consists of three cylinders–one for the bedroom one for the kitchen and one for the living room:
But step inside and a whole new world unfolds in front of your eyes. Large glass doors and floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow the living area and the dining space to be visually connected with the patio at all times.
We end by turning our attention to Leaf House designed to shelter a family of four. Built from Forest Stewardship Certified timber and reclaimed materials this is one eco-friendly home! The space is 215 square feet including a 55 square foot sleeping loft. The photos that follow are courtesy of Leafhouse/Laird Herbert via Tiny House Talk.
