No, it doesn’t have any luxurious features (well, its not done yet, so who knows!), and its a mere shelter/single sleeper and not so much a tiny house (then again “What IS a “house”? Many different cultural interpretations there…), but here’s a few shots of A WORK IN PROGRESS– its far from finished. Ultimately I’m either going to donate it for use, or sell it to then donate the proceeds- we’ll see- depending on who can realistically make use of it.
|Always with the jump shot, always with the jump shot….. The micro A-frame cabin is almost 8′ tall, and utilizes a thick recycled door as its base.|
Oh yeah, aside from the tar paper (1/2 a roll), some caulk, a portion of the screws, and the wood that frames the window (and 1/8 of a gallon of $5.00 “Oops Paint”)- its ALL free, recycled, and dumpstered/curbed materials- some donated by my neighbor Paul LaCivita (thanks Paul!).
|The tiny A-frame with SOME of the trim and battens on…..amongst many of my other recycled material cabins.|
TOTAL BUDGET: $48.00 (it could have been built for less if I had more time to search for window-frame wood (that set me back $21.00- although I didn’t use the whole 12′ pine board). Also, I bought the tar paper, but have almost half left (and the price of a FULL roll was incorporated here).
By the way, the above shot, with all the cabins, will most likely be the site, again, for our NEXT hands-on, tiny house/shelter building workshop here in Massachusetts- we’re still in the process of nailing down a date for our 2nd annual tiny-house-a-thon. For any interested, email me at kidcedar at gmail dot com. Thanks!
For all you A-frame cabin/tiny house addicts- the new version of my book (below) will have some A-frame sketches and ideas, an INVERTED A-Frame house, and then some….THANK YOU, THANK YOU, those who have supported me by picking up a copy on Amazon.com.
Here’s one of the sketches….(all in all, the new book has something like SIXTY cabin, house, shack, cottage, and fort concepts- and then a TON of other related stuff- building tips and ideas, design help from some pros…).
