54 SQ FT | OFF-GRID MICRO-HOME | Move-in: Oct 2017
Terraform Three, a 54 sq ft self-sustaining micro-home, combines the best of both worlds between a car camper and full-blown Tiny Home. The house measures 6’ wide by 10’ long and less than 9’ high, and can be easily towed by most small SUVs and fit in virtually any driveway.
The goal of Terraform Three is to be a template for sustainable living and share the Tiny House movement to people across the nation. The home is extremely minimalist and completely self-sustaining. Terraform Three will use solar as its primary source of energy, water tanks for boondocking, and a composting toilet to turn waste into valuable fertilizer. By using reclaimed materials for as much of the build as possible, we are aiming to minimize the waste incurred through the building process, making the carbon footprint of the home nearly zero.
The completion date was October 2017, just in time for the National Tiny House Jamboree, after which Terraform Three will take off for a tour across the United States. We will be holding open houses, teaching people about sustainable living (physically, environmentally, and mentally) and helping others fulfill their tiny house dream.
TERRAFORM THREE FEATURES:

T3 has been a lot of work, almost three weeks were spent converting a used boat trailer into a usable base for the home. Over the past several months the project has come together and is starting to look like a home. Here’s a look at the daily progress on the project one second a day.
Want a tiny house at your event?
Tiny homes have become a huge trend over the last few years and draw crazy crowds! Personally, I have had over 15,000 people through my homes and been featured in events that drew crowds in the hundreds of thousands. If you’re looking for someone to speak or exhibit at your event, CONTACT ME! I love sharing my home with others and have a wealth of knowledge on the tiny house movement, sustainable living, tiny house construction, and have done everything from open houses to hands-on building workshops, to public speaking engagements. Prices and availability vary depending on my schedule and house location, but I will do my best to help in any way I can.
