I started Tiny House Scotland in February 2014 as an overall banner for my experimental small scale eco building projects.
After many months of research and development I built the first prototype – the NestHouse which is now complete and undergoing testing. I am currently working on the next project – a road towable design called the NestPod which will start building very soon.
Tiny House Scotland represents my personal crusade to bring together the physics of building science with aesthetic design and individual craftsmanship to create a new alternative for small scale sustainable living. The aim is to create a holistic result which is beautiful and functional both inside and outside.
It is a clear matter of principle for me that Tiny House Scotland is a micro business – I work on my own and sustainably – my craft is my work and I am not trying to make a huge profit or vast sales, just be paid for my time, skills and creativity. There’s a large dollop of Karma involved – I LOVE what I do! My hope is to build two or three NestHouses or NestPods a year at the most depending on size and specification.
I just love working and experimenting with wood and wooden buildings. That’s the Tiny House Concept in a nutshell – Less is MORE and brings greater happiness!!
