A Sustainable Tiny House in Hawaii

In August, wildfires raged through the Hawaiian island of Maui and left thousands of people homeless. Jack Whitfield of Sol Projex has some ideas for replacing some of those homes in environmentally-friendly ways. Not only does he use reclaimed wood, but also mills wood from trees of invasive species. He's in the process of building a sustainable home for a family in Lahaina. In this video, he explains his building philosophy while giving us a tour of his own tiny home on Kaua'i. Of course, it's easier when you don't need insulated walls and your appliances can be set outside, but that's Hawaii for you. Even people  in paradise need a place to live. (via Digg)
