Ron and Sue Corl have been living the tiny house lifestyle for 28 years. Ron shared their storybook cottage, designed and built by himself, with Small House Bliss.
As he says, “It took over 2 years to gather all the materials including cutting some trees on the land and having them dried and cut into posts. By collecting materials first, you can design around window & door sizes instead of buying costly new materials to fit your predetermined plan. Be flexible! Our windows were brand new overstock, and I paid $5 each at auction! I designed around them for the overall look. If you can search Craig’s List and go to auctions and yard sales, you can source almost everything for pennies on the dollar, but it takes time.”
