Built by Ryan O’Donnell of Humble Hand Crafts, the Nomad Pad was built using tools powered by an off-grid solar system that was backed up by a biodiesel generator – but just on stormy days.
Notable features inside are a Hobbit wood stove, full-size fridge, copper bath tub, 2 lofts, and an on-demand water heater.
Outside is a mobile “slide under” 5’ x 8’ deck. The walls are framed using light gauge metal. The home’s solar system has a Lithium battery bank.
All reclaimed woods for interior and exterior come from a variety of sources up in Northern California. For example, wood from a 10,000 gallon redwood water tank, wine tank staves, hot tub staves all re-sawn for interior paneling and trim work.
