Tiny House in a Landscape

Dave Stonehouse in Golden, British Columbia, still plugging away (amongst a lot else) on my “Littlefoot” prototype. Looking to have something completed in the next few months that I hope you would consider doing a post on. Meanwhile I snapped this photo the other day at my job site that I thought you’d like.

Thanks Dave for sharing your progress and this beautiful picture. Can’t wait to see it completed. – Kent

  1. This is one of the best looking units to appear on the blog. Nicely scaled and good details. The cut timber base is a unique use of this ancient tech. Am I correct that the unit is intended for “set and leave” installations? The timber construction would be quite a load to be hauling around on a regular basis.

    Keep up the good design work.

    Waiting to see coverage of the final build-out.

    PS: At one time there was a milled timber system that had T&D joints and the tinker-toy like system stacked up very nicely and was easy for the average “Joe” to self construct. Such a system, if still available, might be easier to construct and haul(or site-build) than the model above.

      Thanks for the kind words. You are right the littlefoot cabins are designed to be set and leave units.
      The roof lifts off in one piece during delivery, to meet hiway height restrictions.

  2. I so love watching, reading, and learning how folks go about making their dream of owning a TinyHome become REAL. I dream…. I dream someday. How do does one get started with nothing? I am currently homeless due to illness. Thanks for the inspiration! I really like your home.

    • Perhaps you can start with a YURT. From What I have seen, they are bigger than a normal tent but appear to be canvas fastened to wood posts. The Tiny House movement are advertising many workshops to show you the necessary tools and teach you how to use them to construct simple homes. Choose a simple design, locate materials (free or recycled), get some nails or screws and try your best to put something together. Surely a friend or someone with basic carpentry skills can help you. Many communities or colleges have free information workshops that may help. Good luck.

    • There are places (farms, etc) that will give room and board in exchange for work, if your illness allows you to do any physical labor. Look into the WWOOF program, there is a lot of information and you could be learning skills while having shelter and food. It could be a start. http://wwoofinternational.org/

  3. Beautiful work. A piece of usable art in a yet unspoiled landscape. Can’t wait to see the completed interior. If the photos of custom furniture and detailing is any indication, it will be spectacular.
