Hello,

You are an in-visionary. This is an amazing tiny home. How do you come about the ideas shown in this model? Do you design on paper first or just go with the idea in your head?

    I’ve seen those on the farm, so look to Big R or other farm supplies.

Stunning, charming and VERY creative tiny home. Were you able to have this home plan approved by the county? Wondering how land taxes will be evaluated on it since it is partially buried?

Relax…he just complimented her. Last time I checked, men and women liked getting compliments and there’s no need to reduce his words to some sort of perceived attack against women’s rights.

Thank everyone! Me see if I can answer some of your questions … When I’m coming up with the idea I usually start with the floorplan sketching that out on napkins graph paper whatever I can get my hands on and then I will start to imagine and draw what it would look like inside, and it just involves from there.

The bathtub is this a stock trough that you can get at a farm supply although I refinished the inside with a bathtub refinisher that you can just get at the hardware store and I painted the outside an antique copper. Drilled through the bottom for the drain.

This was a permitted to build since it is 288 ft.² the county it was really awesome to work with and kind of let me do my thing because they haven’t dealt with this in the past. My taxes are pretty cheap now and since it is off grid I don’t for see them going up too much but who knows.
