The ProtoHaus is a tiny dwelling of 125 square feet. ProtoHaus is a timber frame or “stick built” house that was constructed over the summer of 2009. Emphasis was placed on sustainability, functionality, and aesthetics. It is fabricated primarily from recycled and reclaimed materials. The building process was overseen and assisted by S. C. Holley Construction. It is transportable.
The house is built on a trailer bed rated to withstand 14,000 pounds. Separate fresh, grey, and black water systems are integrated into the design allowing for remote removal and disposal of waste. A solar and wind system power the house allowing it to be off grid. Over the academic year 2009-2010 there were a series of collaborative workshops at Alfred University which included students, faculty and different departments to accompany the project. The house was open to visitors on particular dates throughout the school year as a mode of sharing the experiment with the Alfred community.
