Green Mountain College students are redefining the American dream with a tiny “living system” home that offers a mobile lifestyle with a reduced environmental footprint. Created as part of professor Lucas Brown’s Renewable Energy and Ecological Design (REED) class, the 70 square foot pod-shaped house includes a sleeping loft, rainwater collection, and a 300-watt solar powered electrical system. Nicknamed OTIS (Optimal Traveling Independent Space), this self-sufficient mobile home uses reclaimed materials and costs less than $2,000 to build.
