The Winning Formula: Tonnes of Hard Work + Bona Fide Friendship

 

Brooks Dubbed his Abode the “Transforming Tiny Home”. Using salvaged materials and gifted items, the Pacific Northwest resident managed to keep costs down and built this tiny home for well below USD $500. While he hand built the abode, his friend helped designed the structure. This tiny home is also sited on a 20-acre land in Washington that is owned by Brook’s friend.

Measuring an area of only 83sq.ft, the interior space may be a small, but there is plenty of daylight coming through the large front window and recycled skylight window from above. The view out to the wildly beautiful landscape makes it an even more relaxing and welcoming.

There are no fancy bells and whistles here, no silly, superfluous granite countertops, but the no-frills budget means compromises like no alternative energy options like photovoltaics, no plumbing, no refrigerator, and no cladding (yet) on the exterior. Brooks is connected to the main grid, heating is provided with a gifted woodstove and he uses a nearby outdoor shower and outhouse instead. But the basics are there, and the interior is efficient and compact with a sitting area, fold-down bed, a wall full of hooks and storage shelving, and a generous work surface that doubles as a kitchen, thanks to an awesome, ninja-style hood that hides a portable propane cooktop.
