Loved the look of this house when I visited in May 2013!
It’s awesome — so nice to see this happening in DC. But one question: where do you go to the bathroom?

I love shou-sugi-ban! I just did it to my pergola.
I was wondering how you financed everything? That is, if you don’t mind me asking?
Unfortunately, financing for tiny homes is still tough—one’s options are generally a high-interest personal loan, credit card, or pulling from personal savings. I went with the third option, having put enough aside before construction to pay for it out of pocket.
I was wondering what type of paint/finish was used on the interior?
No paint, just some natural earthen plaster clay. More on the process here: http://www.jayaustin.info/2013/01/getting-plastered-earthen-clay-for.html
Sorry for the double comment. Thanks for the link!

I just sent you a friend request on FB! This is so awesome!!! I stumbled across your article searching for information on how to build tiny homes. I live in DC and didn’t think I would ever be able to do it here. Who taught you how to do this? I’m interested in learning myself? Some people say they learned from books, others went to school. Thanks for your time.
cool crib,love the floorplan ..been thinking of the flat roof for some time…lots of advantages.
Check out ( google “garbage truck house” ), love this U shaped living, dining, california king
arrangement. If it was framed right a water tank could be underneath table ,storage galore all around and with a loft on the other end .. 2 bedrooms. The Minim is a gem also. Questions..do you know how far you can span SIPs with a flat roof ? Are you guys familiar with radiant barrier
foil house wrap ? I was doing some research a few days ago and it’s suppose to perform on par
with traditional wrap ( the T word), priced similar with all the advantages of a radiant barrier.
Just saw Deeks tour on YouTube, had to comment directly to you. Good work, taking some pointers. Love the idea of the steel for the loft floor joists. Good work
