Retiree’s Victorian Tiny House,19th Century Living with a Modern Twist

Historian, Shorty Robbins, built a Victorian-era cottage on wheels. It provides a window in the past, a darling living history example. While it is her full-time tiny home, it is an also excellent tool for her favorite pastime, historical re-enactments.

Shorty is a founding member of the Golden Teacup Society, a group of woman reenactors who were interested in the accurate portrayal of civilian women during the 1860-1865 America Civil War period, the Golden  Teacup Society. She takes her THOW to reenactments to feature 19th century Florida pioneer cabin life. Despite the emphasis on historical accuracy, “Nawaka” is full of cleverly hidden modern conveniences, like A/C, a solar generator and a TV. The most ingenious is Shorty’s piano bed!

Shorty has thought of everything! I love the ideas of period piece disguising the modern amenities! Ingenious thinking and execution!
