Charlie’s DIY Wicked Tiny House

This is the Wicked Tiny House, designed, built and owned by Charlie Smith. He estimates the materials cost him $14,000.

For those of you unfamiliar with New England slang, “wicked” is often used as a synonym for “awesome” (or other similar words). Smith grew up in New Hampshire, but now lives in Montana with his self-built tiny home! Learn more about Charlie here. Plus, you can follow his travels and the entire tiny house construction process on his blog here, which is pretty wicked!

Get the house specs on the last page, and ask Charlie further questions about the build here on his website.

      I know! It’s fantastic!

    Wicked Cool Tiny house! You did an awesome job building & designing it! I really love all the windows, especially since they have window panes in them! Also just love the sea glass counter tops! Your home is adorable!🌷🌹🌷

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 24, 2017, 4:46 am

      Those counter tops were amazing!

  • Gabriella April 21, 2017, 2:44 pm

    It is amazing how the personality of each of us can change a housing module that has the same formal features. This shows that the human soul is a force in this case, positive.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 24, 2017, 4:41 am

      That’s so true, Gabriella!

  • Danielle DiLisio April 21, 2017, 9:24 pm

    Very nice job, I really like the lodge feel this house has

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 24, 2017, 4:36 am

      Yes! Lodges are the best.

  • Theresa Perdue April 21, 2017, 11:56 pm

    Throw in a microwave and I am ready to move in. Great house.

    • Charlie Smith April 23, 2017, 11:22 am

      It already has one! It’s tucked in the cabinets below the counter. 🙂

  • Denise April 22, 2017, 1:39 am

    Warm, cozy, and beautifully done; each piece of wood polished to perfection with the richest warm colour allowed to show through. This pulls someone in for a curl up on the couch with a good book and hot cup of coffee. This house is so inviting – inside and out. I wish him many happy years there.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 24, 2017, 4:32 am

      I’m so glad you liked it 🙂 I thought it was awesome.

  • Nanny M April 22, 2017, 12:35 pm

    Wow! I need those countertops! Magical.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 24, 2017, 4:25 am

      Aren’t they cool?

  • Evening Iris April 22, 2017, 2:06 pm

    Great job. Looks wickedly awesome! 😀

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 24, 2017, 4:24 am

      Wicked awesome indeed 🙂

  • Joanna Chanin April 24, 2017, 6:19 am

    Warm, cozy and lots of beautiful details

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 25, 2017, 5:49 am

      Precisely 🙂

  • iris April 24, 2017, 8:58 pm

    I love the wood…there is something a little bit warmer about it..a soft gleam. I love the curvature of the ceiling. Quite inviting. Don’t like curtains that close to an oven but, over all…well done.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee April 25, 2017, 5:33 am

      Wood has such a warm feeling! I agree, Iris.

  • Grace April 30, 2017, 4:10 pm

    I love it!!!!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee May 1, 2017, 2:53 am

      Me too 🙂

  • Liz May 19, 2018, 8:39 pm

    So inviting – – – warm, and cozy. Would love to curl up there with
    a good book, and a cup of tea on a snowy or rainy day. Great job,
    and great price. Love it!

  • Marsha Cowan May 19, 2018, 10:18 pm

    Charlie, it’s great! Absolutely beautiful and what a view! The details are really done well, and the wood is gorgeous. Great job!
