Minim House, D.C.'s Most Famous Tiny Home, Wins AIA Award

This 212-square-foot home may be small, but it is the most well-known and possibly the most reported on tiny home in Washington, D.C. At this year's American Institute of Architects (AIA) Washingtonian awards, Minim House received the highest award, the Washingtonian Award of Excellence. The only other winner of the award was Washington, D.C.'s permanent supportive housing project, La Casa. Built by Foundry Architects, Minim House uses a 960-watt solar panel and a system that captures and treats up to 290 gallons of water. The structure is built out of untreated, shiplapped cypress, and structural insulated panels. Inside, you can find a 10-foot galley kitchen, full size bed, and walnut desk that can open and real an electric piano.
