Tiny house off-grid freedom with solar panels and batteries

Colorado's 'MitchCraft Tiny Homes' shoehorned a surprisingly fully-featured tiny house onto a compact 6.7 m-long trailer with its latest build, 'Davis's Off-Grid Tiny Home'. Sleeping up to four people under its small roof, the towable dwelling also boasts solar power, a composting toilet, and onboard water storage, allowing the owner maximum off-grid freedom.
The small size of Davis's 22 ft Off-Grid Tiny Home reminds us of the compact tiny houses we see in Europe

Davis's Off-Grid Tiny Home

The recently-completed tiny house, named after its owner, is based on a double-axle trailer and clad in cedar, with a relatively large drop-down deck at the entrance providing some outdoor living space. Its small size is unusual for North America and its design reminds us of the tiny houses by Baluchon and other European firms. Visitors enter into a snug living room with a sofa bed and wood-burner. The home is finished in wood, with live edge window sills and it looks nice and light in there thanks to plenty of glazing.
The kitchenette is nearby. This is a reasonable size and includes a two-person breakfast bar, pull-out pantry, shelving, a small two-burner stove and a refrigerator. A washer/dryer and sink are also installed. Further into the home is a door leading to a bathroom with stainless steel shower surround, copper pail sink, and composting toilet.

The tiny house gets power from a roof-based solar power array, with eight batteries ensuring the juice keeps flowing on a cloudy day. A 264 l fresh water tank and water pump are also installed underneath the living room seating. Davis's Off-Grid Tiny Home cost around US$79,000.

Tiny Eco Homes UK interview

Earlier on this month I made my way to the Birmingham NEC for the Holiday Park Innovations show having a look round to see what exciting’s things people have in store for the holiday season. There was one thing that really stuck out to me and I had to find out more. Tiny Eco Homes UK had the most impressive touring home/glamping/towing innovation I had seen in quite some time. So I decided to have a catch up with the company director Chris March to find out more about his creation.

Tiny ECO Home and the idea behind it

I liked the idea of having a caravan to live and travel in but didn't find them very homely or practical for living in so decided I would build a mobile house that has all the home comforts and more. Road legal mobile tiny houses are 2.60 m. wide and we build up to 7 m. length. We can also build static homes which are on mobile chassis that can be built 3,70 m. wide to 9,80 m. in length. Yes the majority of our projects are built to plans that our customers have drawn up. When we somewhere arrive we always draw a huge crowd wherever we go, everyone can't believe the space inside and the level of quality of the finish in our homes.

The tiny house and how it get powered

As standard the homes come with a mains hook up point, we offer a fully off-grid package where our homes come fitted with solar panels and a battery bank which provides mains power throughout the home. Most people just park the home up and use it on a permanent site to be lived in full time.
We deliver the tiny houses fully build but also just as a rolling chassis. We really like the customer to get involved with the build. We even have customers come to stay with us so they can even get stuck in throughout the building process

I'm interested in everything that has to do with sustainability. My house is solar powered and I have my own water supply and filtering system.  I grow my own vegetables and fruit. Most of the time I go on the road by bicycle and for long distances I use public transport.
