Final design ready for a building permit

After ten months of changing designs we have settled on a 1126 square foot home complete with a garage and one bed/bath. This home will be perfect for our off grid plans. The beauty features of this home is the kitchen/greenhouse connection, metal roofing and grey water collection/filtering, compost toilet, solar power system, in floor water heating and 12 volt lights throughout. I want to mention that this home is smart, it thinks on its own and can also be controlled by a smart phone controlling lights, shades, climate control and security. The red area below shows the kitchen, greenhouse and a the entryway that will be built for the upcoming Shemer Art Center’s Microdwell 2015 show.
