For their entry into the 2016 SMUD Tiny House Competition, the construction technology students at College of the Sequoias designed and built this 280-square-foot tiny home — a 180 square foot footprint and another 100 square feet between the two lofts. The team won the People’s Choice Award, Best Curb Appeal, and Sold! awards at the inaugural Tiny House Competition.
Built for the cool climate of the Puget Sound in Washington state, the net-zero tiny house is heated by a warm water radiant floor heat system. Ventilation fans at each end of the house are enough to keep the house cool during the summer. A 65-gallon grey water system recycles water used in the house while gutters collect rain on the outside.
The large bedroom loft fits a queen-sized bed and the bonus loft over the patio fits a single sleeper. The kitchen cabinets are made of recycled cedar cabinets.
The tiny house will be used as a vacation home in Washington after the competition.
