Derin Williams is the creator and dreamer behind the Salsa Box tiny home. He started his tiny house design and build company Shelter Wise, back in 2012 and has since built 30 custom tiny homes. His back ground is in energy efficiency and sustainable design. Currently he is dreaming of even smaller structures to shelter the homeless in his home town of Portland Oregon.
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!
