Introducing tiny house, OTIS

OTIS stands for Optimal Traveling Independent Space and it’s only 70 square feet. Students from Vermont’s Green Mountain College Renewable Energy and Ecological Design program designed the house is one semester. It’s eminently towable and off-the-grid.


See more images in the article on The students worked in teams and the project offers an interesting format for a semester design-build project.
