Austin Hay has grown just as much as his tiny house has. However, the semi-famous young man seemed unfazed by the attention his house was getting on this sunny day in October. Dozens of people visited his tiny build last Saturday, including the parents of Kirsten Dirksen, who filmed Austin when he was 16 years old.
Austin has already been living in his tiny house for the past year-and-a-half while finishing up the final details.

This week’s Tiny House in a Landscape was taken by Eric Jacobson who lives in Austin Texas. Eric says:
This past weekend I rode in the LiveSTRONG Challenge here in Austin. Actually, the ride takes place in Dripping Springs just west of Austin. I usually ride the same route, but this year I decided to ride a different one and I was pleasantly surprised by the scenery, especially this little gem. It sits just off the road with a small stone fence in front, large pasture surrounds it on the sides and back and a river running in front on the other side of the small country road. It was a great Fall day for a great ride with fantastic scenery.
