Ecotopia House: A 50th Anniversary UCSC Student-Built
Tiny House for the SMUD Tiny House Competition

The UCSC-Cabrillo College Ecotopia House is a “tiny house” designed to minimize residential ecological footprint through both construction and operation.More sustainable technologies promise new techniques for reducing residential greenhouse emissions, as this project hopes to explore. Our aim is to design a low-cost, zero-net energy 1-2 person home that is easily reproducible, using recycled materials where possible, and providing housing with as little environmental impact as possible.
