Efficient and Sustainable Dwelling on Wheels: Tiny, Off-Grid Living

Off-grid living is increasingly becoming popular among homeowners who are looking to escape the constant urban rush. It also offers a safe and sustainable refuge that allows you to maximize space and resources with ease. For some, tiny cabins are perfect second homes. Others use them as their primary dwelling units. Then there are those who use these smart sheds as backyard escapes and smart home offices. The latest in this series from Modern Shed is the DW (Dwelling on Wheels) – a brilliant and innovative little cabin on wheels equipped to take you off-grid in absolutely no time.

Light gray metal siding covers the cabin exterior

Despite being just 220-square feet in size, the interior of DW packs quite a punch. On the outside, an envelope of standing-seam metal siding covers the cabin while beautiful cedar wood takes over on the inside. A floor-to-ceiling glass wall and sliding doors connect the cabin with the outdoors even while ensuring that the interior feels a lot more spacious than it really is. A small sitting area with fireplace in the corner serves as the living area with an L-shaped kitchen in the corner and bunk beds that easily accommodate 3 people.

It is birch-faced plywood that covers most of the kitchen and with solar panels on the roof powering the cabin, there is very little dependence (if any) on conventional power in here. Two electric wall heaters and a small bathroom complete this tiny cabin on wheels.
