Located in one of the islands of Maine in the United States, the house designed and built by Alex Porter for his father, is almost completely self-sufficient. The island is largely uninhabited, has no roads, shops, electricity, water and transportation services. That’s why the house was self-sufficient and does so through solar energy and storage of rainwater, they generate the energy needed for operation.
The house faces the ocean and thus receives strong winds throughout the year. So it was designed with a very resistant aluminum coating and three sliding doors that can close it completely at times unusable.
The house captures the solar energy through solar panels on their roofs and includes a cistern to store rainwater, a system of composting toilet and a solar refrigerator. Inside the main material used as wood from nearby forests, rocks of the island and some recycled plastic laminate furniture.
