Meet the ProtoHaus, another tiny RV house with a total of 125 square feet. This RV house was masterminded by Ann Holley, who was a graduate student at Alfred University at the time. This tiny house design is something of an artistic creation as many of them are. There are motivations from consumerism, Da Vinci, and Michelangelo according to the Protohaus website. This tiny house RV was built over the summer of 2009 and has a sturdy stick built construction. The RV house was built over a period of about 7 weeks which is quite speedy if you ask us. It measures in around 22 feet long and 8 feet wide. As is becoming more prevalent with RV houses, the design has a large focus on the environment and sustainability. Mrs. Holley used mostly recycled or re-purposed materials to build out her tiny house. She did in fact hire a construction company to oversee the specifics of construction which is never a bad idea if you don’t have the expertise or a friend with tools!

The RV house is built on a typical trailer chassis for added mobility and comes with all the typical mechanical RV elements such as grey and black water systems, solar power, bathroom, stove, cook-top, refrigerator, etc. This tiny house also features a fold away table that opens up the interior if additional space is needed. A handy addition that many RV’er would love to have featured on their rigs no doubt.
Alfred University actually allowed Ann to park her tiny house on campus and use it as a dwelling as opposed to the typical student housing. We could have been so lucky to have a college pad like that. It shows you that in the name of artistic creation, anything is possible. But if we are honest with each other, it would have just led to more opportunities to get ourselves in trouble.
