Ever wonder if it was possible to travel with the luxury of having home comfort? The amazing new Protohaus is a 125 square feet sustainable trailer home than can offer all of this and more. It is a timber frame or "stick built" house that was constructed primarily from recycled and reclaimed materials. The idea was created by engineers and artists whose main objective was to construct a trailer home with emphasis on sustainability, functionality, and aesthetics.
The project was finished in the summer of 2009 and the Protohaus and the building process was overseen and assisted by the S.C. Holley Construction. The tiny dwelling is also extremely versatile and easily transportable. It is built on a trailer bed rated to withstand 14,000 pound. Separate fresh water systems are integrated into the design allowing for remote removal and disposal of waster. The house can also be powered off the grid with its revolutionary solar and wind generated system. The Protohaus is 22' ling and 8'6" wide, making it 125 square feet inside withough including the 9' by 7'6" sleeping loft. The trailer home is open to visitors interested in the "small house movement" to come and take a tour. For more information check out: http://www.protohaus.moonfruit.com/
