Tiny Cabin Engagement Proposal

Adam & Steph – An Engagement Film from Wilhelm on Vimeo.

I would love to share my tiny house story with the tiny house community!

I built and proposed to my wife in a tiny cabin I built from scratch in Ontario, Canada.

I have since started a small business and hope to pursue the build of a tiny home for my architecture thesis at the University of Waterloo.

A small self-built cabin in Ontario, Canada. Shared and built by Adam Schwartzentruber. More info. here.

    OMG I got tears in my eyes. Cute cabin and even cuter couple. Good luck with life and tiny house!

  15. […] I started with Kijiji, and ended up finding a few options. There was a Tiny Home Shell built right out of the St. Jacobs area that was being advertised as a “Tiny Tim home”. It was going for 18-20K and would still require quite a bit of work. There are also builders in Toronto and the Muskokas making homes for approximately 30K. But then, the stars aligned when I found the following video: http://tinyhouseswoon.com/tiny-cabin-engagement-proposal/ […]
