Sol Pod by Sol Haus Design

Sol Pod Kitchen

Vina Lustado has lived in her tiny house in Ojai, California for two and a half years. She is also the founder/owner of Sol Haus Design.

Pictured here is the 16-foot Sol Pod, a new design by Vina. It’s set-up to be functional & flexible and meet a variety of needs like backyard cottage, office space, art studio or guesthouse.

She used SIPs (structural insulated panels) for its construction. Ample natural light fills the interior. An off-grid solar system provides power. Innovative storage drawers are hidden below the raised floor inside the studio. It has a small kitchen, but no bathroom.

We first spotted Sol Pod on Tiny House Swoon. Learn more about Sol Pod at Sol Haus Design.


    1. Hi Kimberly! There is no bathroom in this model for many reasons: for more mobililty, to reduce cost, to reduce weight and size, and to avoid the legal issues that comes with sewage hookups. With that said, I have designed several models with this layout with a bathroom, on a 20′ trailer. Hope that helps!

  1. What a fabulous work space! That would make the most amazing sewing studio. I could fit most of my fabric collection in there if I used the loft too and plenty of space for sewing machines and cutting table. A tiny bit of space would need to be used for a composting toilet though, unless it was awfully close to the house or an outhouse.

  2. Last photo: Nice bumpout solution for the kitchen. Is the bit of green foliage on the top corner of the roof a “topping out ceremony” homage to the building Gods – or did you run into something green?

    I echo the other reader’s comments about the lack of a compact bath. If I was going to spend big bucks on a tiny house, then I want it to be “self-contained”.
