This is a video tour of Zyl Vardos‘ first tiny house.

Abel Zimmerman created this gem from recycled and repurposed materials some eight years ago, and it’s one cozy build. Be sure to watch the video below to hear the story behind it.

Did you know Abel Zyl of Zyl Vardos hosts an “Ask Zyl Live” series on YouTube every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. PST?

It’s true! If you’ve seen his homes, you’ll know Zyl is a master craftsman, so getting to pick his brain every week is a real treat. Last week he spent an hour answering questions like how to make your exterior siding last and how many tiny homes he’s built. He also discussed how to seal the bottom of your tiny house, why nails can be better than screws, and why he doesn’t use much steel in his builds. Bonus: See his farm! You get all that (and way more!) for completely free.

If you have a question for him for next week, head over here to post your questions in the comments. Be sure to subscribe to his channel so you don’t miss anything.

This is a No-loft Zyl Vardos build: The Dewdrop Tiny House!

As with all Abel Zimmerman’s work, it’s beautifully handcrafted. This particular vardo has an amazing couch that pulls out into a full-sized bed, a fully functional kitchen, and a spacious bathroom.

This is the 18′ version of the Dewdrop Tiny House by Zyl Vardos which offers about 144 sq. ft. of space inside. It’s another incredible design/build by the amazing carpenter/artist and founder of Zyl Vardos, Abel Zimmerman Zyl.

Zyl specializes in artistically designed and built tiny homes with handmade windows, doors, and curved rooflines. And with the Dewdrop, it’s no different. So I’m pleased, honored, and excited to show it to you here. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

Last October I showed you the Pinafore Tiny House by Zyl Vardos that Abel built for the woman you’re about to meet.

Thanks to the people over at Tiny House Giant Journey for taking us on a tour inside the life of Bernadette’s simple living lifestyle after Abel, the man behind Zyl Vardos, custom designed and built this masterful tiny house on wheels that also easily qualifies as a piece of art.

Please enjoy the video tour, interview, and story behind the Pinafore tiny house below. And if you’d like to please feel free to re-share it with your friends and family using the social media and e-mail share buttons below. Thanks!
