This Tiny House in Portland Follows The Sun

A hundred years ago, George Bernard Shaw did his best work in his rotating writing shed. There are some big advantages; he could turn it toward the sun when it was cool, away from it when it is hot. Lester Walker notes that "it could be manually turned to follow the arc of the sun.

He worked alone and loved his privacy; he even adjusted his telephone for outgoing calls only." (More on Shaw's hut here)

Now, Portland Oregon's Path Architecture has built 359, a bigger shed that does much the same thing; it is 12 feet by 12 feet and has it all. Compared to the 8'-6" of your standard tiny house, it is really roomy inside.

There is an off-grid design with composting toilet and solar on the roof, shown on the model.
