Mike Basich adventure-mobile
A few years ago pro snowboarder Mike Basich, built the ultimate off-the-grid tiny house he called Area 241. The house, nestled on 40 acres of untouched land near Truckee, California, was featured on the show Going Off Grid and appropriately named “The Tiny Shred House.” It took 5-years and several tons of stone for Basich to create his tiny house, inspired by The Golden Ratio – the law of nature that, in theory, makes the space more fit to the body. The 40-acre property also has a chair lift, built by Basich and friends, making the zone the ultimate shred spot.
Basich took his Area 241 idea to the open road, literally, and created an adventure-mobile like none other. The majority of the 13 and a half foot tall mobile-home is created from recycled and restored materials and everything can be fueled by batteries, or can be plugged into a house if given the option. Basich also put solar panels on the roof.
