If you follow the tiny house movement, you may have heard about Blakeâ€™s Tiny House.Â The project is led by a team of four â€“ Blake Dinkins, Lance Cayko, Alex Gore, and Sarah Schulz â€“ who met at North Dakota University while pursuing master of architecture degrees.Â Their goal is to document the construction of the 128-square foot home from beginning to end.
Blakeâ€™s Tiny House is moving forward with the design shown here, which is in development.Â In terms of green features, the team envisions solar panels, an indoor planting garden, a water collection system, passive solar gain, and a transformer-style, fold-down deck.
That said, the design is still being finalized and the team is looking for community feedback.Â Theyâ€™re also interested in talking with sponsors and will incorporate feedback and sponsor contributions throughout the process.
The tiny house has a footprint of 8″x16″ and the budget is a tight $4,500 – $6,500.Â Updates of the project will be posted on the website for Blakeâ€™s Tiny House and completion is planned for late summer, early fall 2011.
