I wanted to show you this tiny house that I built over the course of 8 months with my dad on Vashon Island. Somewhat based off an old Tumbleweed model (The Tarleton), it currently resides in Seattle where I live in it full-time. Going into this project I had no construction experience besides building a toolbox (which remains unfinished, actually). It features a marine cooking stove, composting toilet and gravity-fed water system. So far its insulation keeps things cozy with a space heater during below freezing weather. My futures plans include adding gutters and rain barrels to harvest water for general use, a solid fuel heater and installing a solar system.

  1. Hey I would love to have more information on the gravity fed water system, I have been trying to research it and just not having any luck finding specifics. Let me know if you have any helpful resources or suggestions!

    1. Lovely house:) Saw the comment above and was hoping to get more information on the meet up? I’m a Seattle local and am in the beginning/planning stages of building a tiny house. If the meet up is open to the public and you wouldn’t mind posting details (time/place), I’d sure appreciate it:)


  2. Vashon and Seattle. Nice places if you can afford them. Nice house, too. Seattle doesn’t mind you living in a small house? Tacoma whines at me for living in a small house.

  3. Fantastic job on your tiny home! I love all the personal touches you’ve included to make it your own. The mason jars are a great idea to save space, too. Love your idea for gathering the rain water, too. Good luck with that.

  4. This is really well done. Nicely crafted, well organized, homey, comfortable, pleasant to be in. Love the triangle windows in the loft; lets in plenty of light in a small and very close space. Great job. Thanks for sharing this with us. Enjoyed it very much.
