American products are known for being extra large, and everything is especially bigger in Texas. One man is challenging that notion.

Jeff Wilson, a college professor from Austin, TX lived in a dumpster for an entire year. In his 6-by-6 foot dumpster, Wilson was able to install solar power, basic cooking accommodations,  a composting toilet, and a solar heated shower.

Wilson’s goal was to prove to his students that he could live on 1% of the electricity and water the average American uses in 1% of the space.

Now that the project is over, Wilson is rolling out dumpster-inspired micro homes via his new company, Kasita. This startup company builds tiny homes packed with the most advanced technologies to reduce the carbon footprints of their occupants.

From flat screen TVs, to clothes washers, these tiny homes have all the amenities we’re used to in a fraction of the space. While the median American home size is 2,467 square feet, Kasitas are 352.

While this model is a bit different from the 6X6 original that is near and dear to our hearts here at RDD, it’s difficult to forget the roots of the first Kasita microhouse.
