This is the story of how a man named Ryan Frank built his own tiny home for only €1,000 using an open source design and 100 hours of his time.
Frank lives in this tiny house with his girlfriend, but they have another structure on their little homestead too. It’s a tiny travel trailer that they use as their kitchen and dining space. They lived in the camper while building the tiny arched cabin you’re about to see now.

Designer Ryan Frank wanted a semi-mobile home for a small plot in a “sensitive area” in Spain. He thought about yurts and domes, but settled for an open source design he found online. Often called a “boathouse” or “gothic arch” structure, it was originally developed by a boat builder; it’s centerpiece are the wooden support ribs.
