This architect got in touch with us about the tiny home he built for himself, but can’t live in due to personal reasons. I’ll let him tell you about the house:
After watching a lot of tiny house blogs and videos I finally decided to build my own. One of the main reasons to start building my own was because I feel that living in a tiny house forces you to reevaluate what is really important in life. I wanted to stop focusing so much in stuff.
UPDATE: There’s also a video tour at the end, which our reader James D. found!

From The Builder
So I started with the design. I wanted to build a cozy but modern tiny house for myself. For inspiration for this project I took as reference some yachts layouts and finishes as they pack a lot of storage in a small space too and I love the high quality look.
So construction phase started. Although I am an architect and design came easy, I had a lot of things to learn about building it myself. So I hired a couple of contractors who did all the heavy work and in the process I learnt some building skills. We took around 7 months to get it done. However due to several personal issues I couldn’t continue to live in it and decided to sell it. I ask for it $49,900 which I consider reasonable compared to some other similar tiny houses. This one at the moment is located in Laredo, Texas. So I created a nice website in order to sell it and offer others to build or design their own. In the future I plan to create a blog on building and designs tips I learnt on the way and hope in the future to be able to be part of the tiny house movement.
