{TH2 – a new tiny house project!}

13 May

so – as it turns out, the owner/builder of my awesome tiny home has recently begun a new project for another soon-to-be tiny house dweller seeking a life less ordinary. of course, i asked if i could fotograph the process {and thank goodness my new “neighbour” is totally cool with that}.

i’ll do my best to update as time goes on… thankfully when i saw the big trailer pull up with this old unit on it, i was home and had free time, and i immediately ran to grab a camera.

this platform will be cut in half… and although the new tiny house {which we are referring to as “TH2”} will be half the size of this, it will still be twice the size of my home… so approximately 300-400 square feet.

i had never really fotographed the decay of a building before… and i gotta say, i kinda loved it. i can’t really explain why – but some of these images are so interesting to me… maybe the contrast of colour and exposed walls or floors… i don’t know. but there is something about “urban decay” i’ve always been somehow attracted to as an artist.

here are some recent fotos of the project from the beginning…


DAY ONE – deconstruction










oh, hi.


plenty of material was recycled – yay!



DAY TWO – deconstruction



stay tuned next week for pictures of the beginning of the actual construction!

    I love his idea to transform an existing, trashy trailer into a treasured tiny home! You know I’ll want to watch the process, and it’ll be easier via your blog. Although, if I can watch too, please let me know.

    Wanna meet up Thursday at our new favorite place?

    It will be interesting to follow the process! And I too find urban decay interesting…found plenty of it in Detroit on a recent trip and really enjoyed photographing their changing urban landscape.

    Obviously I love these posts and am loving our architectural connection 🙂 check out Gordon Mata-Clark if you’re not already familiar with his artistic deconstruction of buildings. I designed a house around his art once. Cool stuff indeed. Xxoo
