Carleton University held a tiny house party Saturday.
It was the first time members of the public had been invited to tour the Northern Nomad, 220 square feet of off-the-grid cuteness. Dozens showed up to coo over both the diminutive domicile and also the state-of-the-art material and technologies it showcased.
Tiny houses are all the rage on social media. There’s even a television show, Tiny House Big Living, dedicated to “radical downsizing.”
The goal at Carleton wasn’t to build a tiny house, but to use a tiny house to demonstrate technologies and materials that would produce enough renewable energy on site to meet or exceed its energy needs.https://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/tiny-house-tour-carleton-gives-the-public-a-glimpse-inside-the-northern-nomad
