Solar-powered tiny house makes a cool backyard office

The kitchen is nifty

It may look like another tiny-house-on-wheels, but this 120-square-foot micro dwelling is less full-time tiny residence than a flexible dwelling fit for a backyard cottage, mobile office, art studio, guesthouse, and more. Designed by Vina Lustado of Sol Haus Design, the Sol Pod leaves out the bathroom, but offers ample desk space, a kitchenette, and plenty of windows on the first level, plus a ladder to a loft for sleeping or lounging.

More impressive are the woodworking details, including the custom kitchen drawers, which has a built-in void for a retro fridge, and the walnut countertop with a cutting board that fits right over the sink. Neat! There’s also a full-length drawer that slides under a raised platform in the house. For a Sol Pod powered completely by rooftop solar panels, the estimated cost if between $50,000 and $60,000.
