This is my 450 square foot micro house. It is completely hand built by me. Every piece of wood was custom made and placed exactly as I wanted it. There is no drywall. All the interior walls are hand shaped walnut, cherry, and ash. Most of the house is built with recycled products or auction finds that were a fraction of the cost of new. My wife, 2 slinky cats and I have lived here happily since 2007. You learn quickly what you really need to live well!
I would be happy to help you design and show you how to build your own micro- house. I may even consider doing a kit to ship to you as well as workshops. Give me a call - Will travel for money, food, or both!
