Tiny House in a Landscape

Aaron Castle sent this unusual Tiny House in a Landscape. Aaron says, “I thought you might like this picture of our tiny house project, with business as usual “people-barns” being built in the background.

The owner of Whole House Building Supply let us build our house there for free as a demonstration item for salvage and re-use.”

What a great idea! Were you allowed to salvage from the construction trash pile? This would be a wonderful story on what is thrown out while building a contemporary home and what can be done with those materials.

I know there is a ton of waste with traditional building practices but with green building, they can use a computerized framing machine that calculates the best pieces of wood to use and then builds the walls automatically (in a warehouse), while the attendant just loads the proper wood pieces. They can frame an entire house with so little wasted pieces of wood that they’ll fit in a std size garbage can. I was very impressed when I saw that.

Way cool to find someone in a “business as usual” paradigm willing to offer the little guy a chance.

What a great idea! You were very fortunate to have this opportunity, hopefully it won’t be an isolated occurrence. I’m doing something similar by having a friend who’s a carpenter/builder keep an eye out for cast-offs I can use for my tiny house.
