Snowboarder’s Unbelievable Tiny House And Property

It took him 5 years to build. It’s a complete labor of love. His name is Mike Basich and this is his DIY 225 sq. ft. tiny home on his 40-acre property in California. I’ve told you about him before here. But in this new video, you’ll get to go even deeper into his life and learn some new things about him and his incredible lifestyle. The best part about it all is that Mike Basich made his dreams a reality.

He even has his own chairlift which took him about 8 months to build with his friends so he can go snowboarding on his own property. His house may be tiny, but he literally has his own resort. And his tiny cabin’s design is just absolutely awesome. See for yourself below. 🙂

    This is one of my favorite tiny houses! It’s featured in Tiny Homes/Simple Shelters. However, there is nothing simple about this place at all. It’s amazing…from where it’s located to how it was built.

    It’s stunning! And thanks for featuring it here…

    I love that the shadows of the two stars in the windows intersect with the pentagon inlaid in the floor at 3:02 pm on his birthday each year. a lovely little bit of modern archeoastronomy. 🙂

    I love this guy! What an inspiration, to give up the corporate sponsorship and understand what really makes him happy.

    Although I strive to avoid any activity in which I end up at a lower attitude than the one at which I started, I think this house is awesome . . .open showers can be really cold, however.

    We are a new micro house builder and are planning an event to reveal our newest creation. This will be happening early October in Scottsdale, Az. Where are good places to post this event?

    This is architecture! This is the result of a space rationally and creatively elaborated, where the rough nature is in harmony with the sleek design of the wooden floor. It is a feast for the eyes!

    Outstanding design. I would have done a few things differently for me, but for him it is great.
