Her new home-to-be is 8 feet by 18 feet and was built atop a flatbed trailer. It has a tiny sleeping loft, a storage loft, a study nook, a kitchen area, a living area and a bathroom. Sometime in the coming weeks, she will tow it to New Haven for the start of the academic year. The house is so compact, she expects to light it and power her cellphone and laptop computer with the energy generated from three solar panels that total about 18 square feet of surface. That’s renewable energy, totally free, off the grid.
