A completely self-sufficient tiny house rotates with the sun's position to store an optimal solar energy amount. That house will soon be realized, according to the team behind MiniStek.

Tiny house MiniStek Turns Towards The Sun. 

MiniStek originated in the ‘Energiefabriek’ in the town Apeldoorn (Netherlands), a creative breeding ground for entrepreneurs. The Creative Industries Fund encouraged creative people to get started with a so-called 'urgent urban task.'

Since there is a lot of vacancy in Apeldoorn and at the same time a housing shortage, we wanted to do something with it ", says Angelique van Lieshout of the ‘Energiefabriek,’ a platform for sustainable citizens' initiatives. "We gathered a group from all interests and professions to get started. Someone called; ‘tiny house’! Another thought it must be something special.

The Tiny House Had To Turn Towards The Sun

The prototype is recently made water- and windproof. The core team of MiniStek currently consists of architects Mireille Langendijk and Ed Euser, timber designer Martijn Monné and business economist Annemarie Huisman. Angelique van Lieshout and Jos Greven are very involved with the team. They contribute by arranging a large part of the communication, promotion, and administrative matters.

Tiny House 'MiniStek' Is Ment For Two People Deeply In Love

MiniStek is round and has slanted roofs with solar panels that stand on such a slope to catch as much sunlight as possible. MiniStek will soon have to spin around on the energy of that light. The cottage is, including a terrace of 4 m2, 26 m2, or rather small. MiniStek is meant for one person or two people 'who love each other very much,' jokes Martijn.

'MiniStek' becomes completely self-sufficient.

Besides, there has to be only a little preparation to be done to build MiniStek. The house should be a flexible living solution, easy to assemble and dismount at any location, and, therefore, without too much foundation. That's why it consists of four segments that can be transported by truck. It is also the intention that MiniStek becomes completely off-grid, thus self-sufficient and therefore not connected to utilities.

Scale Model Of The Tiny House Ministek

Three months after the first scale model, a prototype was built in an empty shed, mainly from scrap wood. The prototype has been made wind and watertight in recent weeks. It gets solar panels on the roof to generate energy on a small scale. So that people get an idea of ​​what MiniStek is. During many events, we hope to attract many curious and interested people.

'The Ministek'; Off-Grid And Healthy Living

Architect Mireille is particularly interested in self-sufficient and healthy living. 'MiniStek' is being built vapor-open. This means that moisture is taken up by the house's natural building materials and given up again. As a result, you get a house with optimum humidity, and the indoor climate is more constant than in an ordinary house. The regular building is not used to building a vapor open way, and because of the strict insulation standards, it actually pulls a raincoat around the buildings."
