The Tiny Solar House is a 210-square-foot off-grid home on wheels that’s powered by six 280-watt photovoltaic panels. The owner, an advocate of clean energy, has taken his tiny house on a journey across the U.S. to visit national parks and educate people about the advantages of smart, solar-powered design.

The tiny mobile home measures approximately 18 feet long and 9 feet wide and it was constructed with a cedar exterior using vertical tongue-and-groove siding and long walls. It features a living room / office space; a kitchen with a fridge, double sink and a four-burner stove; a bathroom with shower and compost toilet; a sleeping loft with a queen-sized mattress and storage space.

The solar panels installed on the roof generate enough clean energy to keep the house powered throughout the day. These are connected to maintenance-free deep cycle AGM batteries and a MidNite Solar charge controller and Xantrex inverter that keep the system running throughout the night.
