Today I want to introduce you to Justin Pepin, the owner of Yogi’s Fine Woodworks & Tiny Home Designs — a new handcrafted tiny house building company.
I’m a budding tiny builder with 20 years of high end finish carpentry, furniture making, home building, and timber framing experience, on top of 2 bachelors of fine arts in sculpture and furniture design.
And boy can you tell! Pepin has been invited to show off his 1/6 scale models of his tiny house designs at a booth at the Midwest Outdoor Expo at the end of the month. He is waiting on an interested buyer to build his first full-scale design.
New Builder: Yogi’s Fine Woodworks & Tiny Home Designs
About the house below: “This is a 1/6 scale model of a tiny timber frame I’ve been working on. The first floor is 18′ x 9′, the second 24′ x 12′. Two squares on two squares. It’s designed using sacred geometry similar to the methods used to create the great cathedrals of Europe, to allow as much light inside as possible. The cupola is mean to rest atop the roof desk during transport, and jacked up and across the copper roof into place. Imagine stained glass everywhere and an ornate wrought iron handrail/baluster system enclosing the glass roof deck. It includes a wet bath with fold down bench when used as sauna/steam room. 9′ live edge walnut counter top with ample storage below. I kept an open floor plan to allow for antiques and a pull out couch. The stairs double as a door for privacy between levels. There will be a deck at both ends that fold down.
Wow I love those windows!
