I recently discovered a movie by Eva Sollberger who has a blog and creates videos about being Stuck in Vermont. Eva discovered Peter King who has been building tiny houses for years in the state of Vermont and did a cool video tour of a couple of his tiny houses.
Eva gave me information on getting in touch with Peter, but so far I have been unable to talk to him.
I really like his 10 x 10 x 10 tiny house design and would like to see if he has plans available. The neat thing about the cube design is that the loft area has enough room to stand up in, or as Peter says “you can walk the plank.”
Peter is a person who believes in living simply, mortgage free, out in the woods and enjoying life. He is not connected to the internet and appears to live off the grid. His goal is to build at least one tiny home a month and to teach others to do it also.
Peter says any one can build a tiny house once you learn the basics of building. A tiny house can be easily fixed if you make a mistake and is a great learning experience. He believes that you can have several small spaces in an area and each person can have his or her own space. These tiny houses also are around 100 square feet so do not require permits to be built.
Rather than spend 6 weeks to several months building a home, you can build a tiny house in a weekend. Watch the movie below to hear Peter tell his idea of how to live life to the fullest.
