This June 18 2014 was the first ever tiny house at the White House (and first Maker Faire there too). Sicily Kolbeck of La Petite Maison brought her tiny house to the President with the help of Teal Brown of Wishbone Tiny Homes who hauled the home for her.

La Petite Maison (tiny house) was parked under the east portico of the White House. If you were to sit down in the east reception room of the White House on this day, you would see Sicily’s tiny house out the window (see photos below).

Meet Sicily Kolbeck of Tiny Maison and her newly built tiny home on wheels.

She’s a young lady who finished building her own DIY micro home for $9,838.69.

I believe you’ll find her story inspiring and her tiny house, well, amazing.

And she still did it even with the most insurmountable of challenges.

The biggest…littlest…um, the latest news in Tiny: La Petite Maison. I’m sure you’ve heard of it; it isn’t all that new, but this 12 year old girl has been taking the tinyverse by storm.

She has been featured in a guest post on the Tumbleweed Tiny House blog. She appeared on Andrew Odom’s r(E)vo Convo Podcast.

She and her Mom even got a chance to visit the Tiny r(e)volution while it was still in Georgia. She also recently visited the Tiny House Showcase, Boneyard Studios, in Washington DC.

There is almost nothing that Sicily Kolbeck hasn’t done and she isn’t even thirteen. As far as anyone knows, Sicily is the youngest tiny house builder on record.

I really wish I had her level of confidence when I was her age.
