“Anne spent years building this amazing tiny home using lots of reclaimed and recycled materials. It has many unique features such as the barn style roof, reclaimed wooden windows, two lofts, and earth plaster walls and counters.”
“Built for only US$17,000 this young couple’s incredible tiny house is packed with unique and interesting design elements. The entire build was carried out as a DIY project using mainly reclaimed materials, as the couple saved up for each new phase of the construction.
In the early 1970’s I was commissioned to design and build a small weaving studio on property located along the coast in Bolinas, California. The client was a weaving apprentice with my sister, who was living on rented property with her family. There was room on that property to place a small studio separated from the main house, and that is where she wanted me to build the studio. Obviously it would be foolish to place a permanent structure on rented property, so I suggested that I design it in such a way that it could fairly easily be dismantled and moved elsewhere if necessary. She liked the idea, so that is what I did.
“Wintergreen Studios built this eclectic tiny hobbit house / cordwood cabin with a green roof using mostly reclaimed, recycled and local materials, including old cedar fence rails found on the land, ceiling rafters from a local woodlot, recycled glass and mirrors in the walls, and the windows, door and wood stove are reclaimed as well. The slate floor is from an architectural salvage depot in Vermont.”
“Long before Wes Modes began planning a journey down the Mississippi, he started building a traditional barge-bottom houseboat in a California backyard out of rustic reclaimed materials (e.g. old fences and chicken coops). Once his shantyboat was complete he hatched a plan to transport it across the country from Santa Cruz to Minnesota to begin a “Huck-Finn style” journey down the iconic American river.
“Travis built his own Tiny House on Wheels. He started with a water damaged trailer and proceeded to build without any plans.”
