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.
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.

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.
No-loft Zyl Vardos Build: The Dewdrop Tiny House
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!
