We built this tiny house in West Asheville. It sits right behind Hole Doughnuts, just off Haywood road. It was completed right before we left town in October for our van life adventure. Those last couple of weeks leading up to our departure were nothing short of intense. But we’re really, really happy with it and are proud to share it with you! It’s also currently up for rent (6 months – a year lease)! If you are interested, please let us know!

Behind the Tiny House Idea

Tiny House Living in Asheville, North Carolina!
This book, Cabin Porn, was one of Caroline’s inspirations for our tiny house.

The tiny home concept for Caroline actually started years ago. She rebuilt an old cabin in Weaverville and realized that small spaces really suited her. So, too, did designing homes. That feeling was then reinforced when she purchased a Spartan Mansion travel trailer and realized she could live in an even smaller space than her cabin.

Anyway, when the opportunity arose for us to build something in West Asheville, well, we leapt at it!

Part of the inspiration from the house came the book, Cabin Porn. Part of it was from images and ideas she had been collecting in her head and online for the last several years.

I am so in awe of Caroline’s vision. She has a knack for putting different elements together and for creating a space that feels really good. Our home is unique and is at the same time comfortable. Kind of like her. I am so proud of her for bringing this project together. I keep encouraging her to let me make a sign and hang it on our house so that other people can hire her for her talents. Maybe one day she’ll let me!

It was really cool to see my wife really in her element doing and making something that really fulfilled her. I hope I get to see it again soon.

This is Caroline!

We’re in the process of adding a back patio and a fence. One step at a time! At some point maybe we’ll add a deck off the second floor. For now, we love it just the way it is.
