Tiny House Inspiration: Pocket Shelter

I don’t know how this guy stayed hidden so long!  the house was finished over a year ago and it just now appeared on Tiny House Swoon.  It’s beautiful; the extruded front porch, the reclaimed materials, the interior with live-edge wood plank countertops and sheepskin couch covers…

I love the millwork and the finishes – wood slabs with plywood, sheepskin and vintage plaids… very nice.

this triangle glazing over the front entry door is perfect.  kind of risky for driving down the road… but really creates the architectural form; both inside and out.

all photos are from Aaron Maret’s website: Aaron Maret Design Build Studio.  check it out.  great photography, design, architecture.  inspirational guy.

also, the house is for sale: $64k.  I liked his response to complaints about the price…

“As with any art, there is much debate about how to value the efforts of the artist…To me, for this Pocket Shelter, the price fits the project. It represents a fair return, an energetic match to my careful and dedicated craft.”

  1. I saw a houseboat just like this on the weekend! A great solution to inflated house prices…

  2. i love his response to complaints in the price too- yeah!!!

    • I know! I liked how he explained the value of his hard work and artistic achievement. a great example to all artists.

    Considering most new cars are $35-40k, that sounds pretty fair to me!

    • This is a really good point! People seem reluctant to pay $40k-$60k for a new Tiny House, but a new car is about the same cost, and while you could live in a car, a Tiny House is much better suited for living!
