The Details

The Salsa Box tiny house is an 89 sf instant cabin designed to be efficient, durable and budget friendly. It is cozy and compact with enough space for a queen sized bed and lots of creative nooks and crannies for storage. It was designed to provide simple living in a natural setting.

The plans come with details for a full 30 amp RV hookup and RV water connection (complete with mini tub/shower combo (8 cubic feet) and a flushing toilet) but can also be modified to be off-grid for the coast, woods, high desert or anywhere in between since it is designed to withstand a variety of weather conditions.

The Salsa Box tiny house incorporates a simplified construction process using weight, energy, and space-saving measures. It was originally built and designed as an instructional model to give workshop students a clear look at each step involved in building a tiny home. Compared to the many tiny homes Shelter Wise has designed and built, this is the easiest of them all and by far the cutest!
