The Tiny House 227 is an energy-efficient mobile dwelling unit designed and built by students over a period of four months.
Yestermorrow’s first semester in Sustainable Design|Build addressed contemporary sustainable architecture practice through the lens of a tiny house in Vermont. Over the course of the semester, twelve students collectively designed and built the house, using a consensus model of group decision making. The finished house includes state of the art technologies for energy efficiency, a variety of salvaged materials, standing seam roofing, charred cedar siding, a waterless toilet and a rainwater catchment system. Students learned fine woodworking and welding skills, and custom-built all of the interior furnishings, including doors and luminaires.
