studio Pin-Up Houses has designed a tiny house that measures in at just 20ft x 8ft and is made from a small shipping container.

Taking 3 months to construct, the home named ‘Gaia’ is an experimental self-sufficient housing project that has no need to rely on external sources of energy or water since this house has been designed to harness solar and wind energy.

The tiny home is equipped with solar panels, as well as a wind turbine, ensuring that the batteries can be charged at all times of the day and year-round. There’s also equipment to retain rainwater, which is then filtered and distributed through to the bathroom and kitchen.

The container roof is covered with a galvanized corrugated metal sheet that extends out beyond the structure to increase the rainwater catchment.
