While this almost-600sf HH may not qualify for a “tiny house”, it will still require careful consideration in terms of space-saving techniques! The unique construction may prove challenging when it comes to working with curved spaces where square things generally go: cabinetry, shelving, etc.
We look forward to suggestions, questions, and even constructive criticism, if absolutely necessary and given in a helpful spirit!
Couple Building 600 Sq. Ft. Hobbit House in Texas!
Gary Zuker is the owner of this little hobbit house in Texas. In 1989 he built it by hand for about $25,000 and lots of labor. The home took three years to complete. He is a University of Texas computer engineer with no carpentry experience before this project.
In total, the space is about 830-square-feet with lots of open areas. Gary had the help of Pliny Fisk, a local sustainable building expert in Austin. Here are some details on the materials used:
Loblolly pine for scissor-truss system
Limestone boulders for doorway, fireplace, and foundation
