The bathroom has a composting toilet and a full size shower. All appliances ar RV sized. Power is provided by solar panels on the roof with a sunlight to access them. A diy solar can heater is also mounted to the roof. Hot water is provided on demand and the stove is operated with propane. Gray water is routed a storage tank under the counter in the kitchen and is used to water the built in growing beds. There are lots of windows for natural light and ventilation. Porch steps are detached to store inside during moving. This tiny house could be built very inexpensively with creative use of discarded items such as pallets, lumber, shingles, insulation and windows found on craigslist, freecycle or construction sites. The appliances as well as lighting, plumbing fixtures, water tanks and pumps, power hookups, propane tanks and even the frame could be salvaged from an inexpensive RV saving you thousands.
