Villa BiG is a guest post by Gary Huffman, a retired army general who built his own 438 sq. ft. tiny cabin as an office and get-away

One theme that is common among military people of all services is that one collects a great deal of memorabilia along the way, either intentionally or unintentionally. These memorabilia may be on display in your workspace, or your den, or packed away in the attic or garage. After thirty-one years I had items scatted among all those places!

I was serving in Iraq in 2005 when I began to consider retirement, however upon my return to the United States circumstances changed. I was selected for a new position in a different city; I was accepted to attend the United States Army War College; and I was promoted to Colonel. All of these were good things and I continued to collect “stuff” along the way.

I love this type of tiny house because it has a bit of that modern touch that I enjoy so I just had to share it with you.

Well, it isn’t exactly a tiny house, it’s actually a backyard study and office.

The owners, Celestino Piralla and Cornelia Stumpf, wanted more space in their home where they can work, do art and study.

So instead of adding another room and risk changing the footprint of their house, they decided to utilize the extra space in their backyard to create a 320 square feet studying/working headquarters.

This free standing tree house is still way up in the air, like any other tree fort.

This design reminds me of Deek’s Hickshaw (only bigger and up on stilts).

Great for if you’ve got kids who’d love to play in it but also useful if you:

  • Need a separate office
  • Need a place to work on your art or craft
  • Need a quiet spot for your writing

Would you, or could you, live in it though? All I can say there is if people figure out ways to live, travel, and take a shower in a car this tiny, then they can live like a king in here.
