High on a hill and far from city water or an electrical grid, a tiny home stood on it’s own. A thorough investigation resulted in the addition of a miniature power generator using solar panels to charge. The efficient tiny house worked to ensure it wouldn’t use much energy. Focus the building’s orientation to help exposure allowing the sun to be an important source of heat during the winter. Using a cast iron wood burning stove would also serve in the months on a mountain side.  A generous overhang prevents too much sun from baking the tiny home during summer, a perfected balance. Install large wooden shutters that slide closed like a second skin over the windows at night to trap in most of the home’s daily heat gain. Surviving the winter and lasting the summer is not for the faint at heart in minimalist living.
