    The Quixote cottage was inspired by the cottages being used to house the homeless in Quixote village:

    http://www.quixotevillage.com

    After seeing the cottages I researched the design but could find nothing on dimensions or pics of the interior so I decided to take it upon myself to create the design and make it suitable for off-grid living. This includes a solar system, composting toilet, on-demand water heater and fresh water storage tank.

    The cabin is 10×20 with a 4 foot covered porch and approximately 135swft of interior living space. It includes a Murphy full size bed that converts to a 5 person dining table, large desk, kitchen, and bathroom with shower.

    I estimated the cost for the insulated and roofed cabin with no power or furnishings to be under $5000.

     

    You can see a video walk through and the design plans  here:

    I like the 25 gallon water tank/sink, is that something that is available commercially or is it a DIY thing?

    Hi Wretha, it is just an RV style poly tank. They have an inlet that can be filled through a wall and attached to a small DC water pump for pressure.

    You should be able to order one from any RV parts supplier and that is what I have in my cabin.
