This is a home that was playfully titled the “Autistic Tiny-Home” by its owner, a 19 yr old Autistic girl by the name of Sarah! We worked very closely with Sarah, her family and her teachers during the design and build of her tiny home. Special attention was given to things like, visual and tactile stimuli, safety, simplicity of design and operation on a day to day basis. Sarah wanted the bulk of the home to be in various shades of pink, while mom was a little more conservative re the exterior of the home, since it is parked right next door to Sarah’s parents home. Sarah’s needs, wants and concerns, quite frankly, were just about the same as most teenage girls. She wanted ample storage for clothing and stuffed animals, a place for friends to come and hang-out and a place that she could call her own. Young adults with autism are faced with some unique challenges and tiny homes can offer them and their families some options that haven’t necessarily been available to them in the past. Owning a tiny home can provide them with a sense of autonomy and a safe living environment that is uniquely their own!
