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.
