This is The Stargazer, a Micro Cylinder Room in the Woods designed for — you guessed it — stargazing!
This adorable tiny space includes nothing more than a huge skylight, two comfy chairs and an itty bitty wood stove to heat a kettle of tea. It was built by Echo Living, and sits in the woods around Ardgour Estate’s Cuil Moss Cottage in the West Highlands of Scotland. Sign me up!
The little house cost him about $10,000, and he lived in it for two years before selling the 270 sq. ft. abode. Since then he moved on to his second (and now third!) tiny house build:
This is how it all began. Sick and tired of simply scraping by and throwing money away every month on rent I decided to build my first tiny house. I lived very comfortably in this 18″ house for two years and absolutely loved it. This was built using mostly reclaimed materials and was finished for under $10K. Some of it’s unique features include: Roof-top deck off the sleeping loft, gravity-fed outdoor shower/32″ indoor shower, composting toilet, removable deck, 10 windows, dog door, wood stove, drop in two burner propane stove, double basin sink, propane on-demand water heater, professional hand made couch cushions, breakfast nook, hatch loft door, and much much more.

You might like the idea of building your own tiny house, but are worried about having a strong foundation. Meet the Rubicon Tiny House Shell by Tiny House Basics. This was a custom design for a customer in San Diego.
