This tiny cottage began as a project because Jeff and Arlene thought it would be fun to build together. Being towed at the back of their car, its was an ultimate way to fulfill the dream of designing and owning a home of their own. When they started building this house, they had planned to build it with VOC free and high quality materials. It was meant to be energy efficient with minimal material usage or solid waste going into the landfill. And, when you see the result, I think they have fulfilled their dream of tiny living.
The way these two had planned to live when they started out this project must have been totally unachievable for me. Take for example, they planned to live with propane tank, which was to be used for cooking and heating, have a composting toilet, so that there was no need for a sewer hookup and have a garden hose hookup for dishes and shower when they were not at YMCA. The way these two have given shape to their dream has also given a good foundation for the study that says how tiny homes address the issue of sustainability and energy use, which can be found on the their blog. You can find so much more on their project on their blog. Just track back .
