This Tiny Home in a Wildflower Meadow is as Off-the-Grid as it Gets

By now, you’ve probably heard of tiny houses. After the 2008 recession, many homebuyers fearful of economic uncertainty became intrigued by the tiny, mortgage-free homes built on wheels. That wasn’t the case for environmental journalist Nikki Fotheringham and her partner, Ian, a builder with a focus on sustainable design. Naturally, they were drawn by the idea of living off the grid.

Eight months later, they had a 340-square-foot countryside retreat that runs solely off the land.
