Meet Matt and Laura. They’re building their own Tiny House in the woods of western North Carolina while they live and work in Atlanta.
That means progress on the house is made on the weekends. And high five for power tools! They started in April of 2009 and are nearing completion almost two years later.
I wanted to take a moment to publicly congratulate you two (yes you, Matt and Laura!) on your first year of working on Life in 120 Square Feet (click to visit their blog).
You’ll notice that theirs is not built on a trailer and instead they decided to go with a more permanent approach (I’m sure they could move it if they wanted to later).
I like the idea of using a traditional foundation versus building on wheels. It gives these homes way more of that Thoreau feel, you know? And I like that.
If you’re wondering, they used the Tarleton design from Tumbleweed Tiny Houses.
You can learn more about them and their previous progress at the links below.
