Zyl Vardos founder, Abel Zyl, takes you on a tour of the first tiny house he ever built. Here, you can see the origins of his architectural style, which is now well known in the tiny house world. The cat is named Midas.
Here at Zyl Vardos, I spend my time designing and building small structures, mainly ‘tiny houses on wheels.’ These begin as a pencil sketch, then become a model, and finally a fully-developed design containing thousands of rendered parts. This is very difficult work, but I have an immeasurable amount of fun doing it. Indeed, this is what keeps me going at the end of the day.
I founded Zyl Vardos in 2008, after having built a wide variety of structures since 1994. The ‘Vardos’ part of the name was given to me by my friend Dee Williams. It is the Romany word for caravan or ‘movable house.’ I am, however, Norwegian/French, which might explain why I don’t mind working outside in the cold misty rain of the Pacific Northwest.

Dylan Magaster did an interview with Abel recently and said I could share the video here too. Enjoy!
