“Peapod”, our most-compact design, is code-minimum small. Some people are commited to living lightly but would like just a little more than the bare minimum. This design has a similar layout to “Peapod” with room for thick, heavily-insulated walls and a little more living space, including more clothes storage, a bathroom with tub and laundry, and a larger kitchen. Its roof can hold enough solar panels to make a large contribution to yearly energy use. Sometimes just a little more space gives a lot of benefits.
