I’ve attached some photos of the tiny house I’ve built. Hope you like it. Best wishes, Thomas Alabaster.

    Brilliant. So’s the little rusty one on your website.

    Wowza – that skylight along the length of the TH is incredible! I have a question, though – how do you keep that skylight clean on the outside?? Seriously. I live on a big parcel of (deciduous) wooded acres, and all year there is something falling off the trees: pollen waves and helicopters in spring, leaves and acorns in the fall, sticks and branches after each storm, and not to mention moss growing on any semi-horizontal surface and algae growing on the vertical ones. I cannot imagine a scenario where nothing settles up there, even if it is just bird poop and dust, and the that wonderful light is dimmed. The slatted frame above the skylight that beautifully scatters the sun’s rays probably isn’t somehow hinged, so it would obstruct anyone trying to get at the light. There is probably some easy answer that I am not thinking of. THANKS for posting your pics – you have me jonesing hard for a long-as-my-house light – now I wonder if it is possible to have one in a full-time, 4-season (wet spring, hot summer, great fall, icy/snowy winter) TH without having something leak or lose all your heat as the temps fall to zero degrees F.

    This is beautiful and imaginative. It’s a perfect vacation spot, no small thing. It would be great to see something like this coupled with features needed for day to day living, like storage.

    What I like best is the natural light coming from that amazing roofline. Gorgeous!

    Distilled essence of what a tiny house should be. A place to sleep, a place to eat and a place to reflect on the world.

    It’s really nice but how much did it cost to build, would be nice to know.

      Click on Thomas Alabaster –shown at the bottom of the last picture—site says 10,000 pounds or about 20,000 US—see list of what that entails….

    I love this. My very first thought was when were you going to add the others two doors so the whole front opens up. I can see them folding back to the walls. Fantastic skills and idea.

    Stunning portrayal of heart-soothing simplicity.

    I love how the bathroom is bigger than the kitchen. I prefer a good shower over cooking any day!
