Quite of few of you have been asking about Scott Stewart and Slabtown Customs as I have not reported on Scott and his work in sometime and his website was taken down. Scott and his business is still going strong and I have an update here of many of his recent projects. In this post I have put together several galleries and a couple of movies of what Scott has been up to. Here they are:

The last three pictures are of a bird house that is a to scale miniature version of the linger longer that my 13 year old daughter built for the owners.[nggallery id=29]
Modular Jasper Cabin
This is a modular type unit called the Jasper Cabin, this house was built in four sections that were then transported to the delivery site and re attached, it had two lower sections that were each 12′ wide and 18′ deep with two roof sections to match, once assembled the house was 24′ wide and 18′ deep with an upper level bedroom.
This particular house had cedar log siding on the exterior with an ivy green metal roof the layout was custom and designed by the buyer, it includes a lower level bedroom with large bunk beds. A three side wrap around covered porch was added to the house after set up.[nggallery id=28]
The Tookie House
This Slabtown Customs build is an 8′ wide and 24′ long tiny house with rustic pine exterior siding installed in a lap pattern. It is built on skids instead of a trailer so is meant to be set up perm on a site but is still easily moved if needed. It’s built on treated laminated wooded skids, has 2×6 floor joists with hurricane ties, 1″ of sub floor material, full standard 2×4 framing with 9′ tall sidewalls. the 9′ sidewalls are used to gain more headroom in the two sleeping lofts this house has, with 7′ tall ceilings in the areas below the lofts this gives us almost 2′ of wall space in the loft areas before the roof starts to make is rise.
The house has an 8×8 bedroom on one end so combined with the two sleeping lofts it will accommodate several people, the bathroom is on the opposite end and includes a 3’x3′ shower stall, full size toilet and 18″ sink/vanity. This particular unit was custom built to be a rental unit much like a motel room so it doesn’t have a complete kitchen, only a dorm style fridge and a microwave along with oak base cabinets and counter top, above the countertop are electric and cable connections to allow a wall mounted flat screen TV.
As with most of our small houses it is fully wired and plumbed like a site built home but has RV type connections, its fully insulated with fiberglass in the floors, walls and ceiling.
The house is completely set up for 110v service and includes a 19 gallon water heater and heat/air unit mounted in the wall. The house has a 9 lite 36″ wide entry door, 3 3×3 windows including one in the bedroom and one in the bathroom for a nice balanced exterior look, as well as one in the living room, with one 2×2 window in each loft. Although this unit does not have a complete kitchen, adding remaining needed appliances would not be a problem.
the set of pics shown in the email were taken before the ladders were installed to access the lofts but there was one in front of each loft. The bathroom and bedroom doors on this unit are pocket doors that slide into the wall so they do not create a problem with robbing space around them when opened.
The flooring in the house is hardwood laminate with a cherry color in the main floor as well as lofts with a high grade vinyl in the bathroom.[nggallery id=27]
Annemarie Wick House
This is a custom tiny house based on our Annemarie plan, it is for a road legal size of just over 8′ wide and 24′ long and includes an 8×8 bedroom on the main floor with two 8×8 lofts above, one on each end. It has a bathroom with a 36″ shower stall, 18″ sink/vanity, full size toilet, 19 gallon water heater, double basin sink with cover for one basin, microwave, toaster/convection oven, double burner cook top, full size fridge, 3/4″ pine t&g interior walls and ceilings, hardwood laminate flooring, built permanently on a steel frame with axles and hitch, painted custom colors.

Ellis Washington Studio Cabin
The Ellis Washington Studio Cabin is a 12′ wide and 26′ long studio cabin with 6′ front covered porch leaving a 12×20 main cabin, this unit was extra tall with two lofts, one over the porch and one over the bathroom and bed area, this units original floor plan had the kitchen area located where the bed is now in the pics, buyer wanted the kitchen moved to present location to allow placement of bed on lower level. In a reproduction of this model the height will not be this tall, we can still however add a loft, its actual height will depend on delivery location and travel route.
