the daily make: desert living unit in 3D.
120 square feet of interior space, because that’s the maximum building size without a permit. The interior walls are light straw clay, and the exterior walls and shade wings are cob.
There’s a greenhouse on the south side for growing your avocados and citrus, and for collecting heat in the winter. Overhang calculated to shade greenhouse in the summer.
There’s an outdoor kitchen on the north side for cooking without heating up the living space in the summer. Overhang can be extended as desired to create an outdoor dining area.
The bath is on the west. Bathe in the morning shade when it’s hot, or in the afternoon sun when it’s cold.
There’s a big cob bench on the east.
