The Smallest House In Fairfax County?

With refurbished pallets and thrift store finds this tiny house became a reality as a part of one woman's masters degree. Sarah McNair studied environmental management and decided to build this 210 square foot house for her thesis project. She and her father did most of the labor to build this fully functioning home that can be transported on the back of the trailer. It comes with a kitchen (with full-sized oven), loft style bedroom, and all sorts of earthy gizmos (e.g. solar panel, composting toilet). McNair is hoping to sell the house to pay off the loan she took out to be able to build it. But until that happens she's showing it at various festivals and conferences to build awareness for the tiny house movement.
