Terraform One began as an attempt to live a sustainable life both financially, emotionally, and environmentally. I wanted a home I could afford and a life I could enjoy without waiting 30 years to retire. I spent close to two years planning Terraform One. Finally in September of 2015 the build of my first home began, and thanks to the SIPs style build and help provided by Artisan Tiny House, I was able to move in just 4 1/2 months later.
Terraform One was easily the biggest project I had ever taken on in my life. I had never designed a home before and only had basic tool knowledge going in. I was not special, I had no background in architecture or construction, but with some help from a few people who had built homes before, I was able to create my beautiful home.
I learned through building Terraform One, that outside of a few things that should be hired out (structural engineering, electrical, and gas) there’s no reason anyone can’t build their own home! No part of the home building process was that cognitively difficult and the lessons I learned through this DIY endeavor will stick with me for the rest of my life.
Since building Terraform One – I have had over 8,000 people through my home, I have been featured on HGTV, and have made so many life-long friends throughout the building process. Going tiny has little to do with the house, it’s about the lifestyle it brings.
Terraform One features:
- Full sized Kitchen & Shower
- 110" Projector theater
- 8 speaker surround sound
- 2 beer draft lines
- Large fridge and freezer
- Space for 3 bikes
- Large loft with No ladders to climb
- Guest Bed
- Storage loft

Walk with me through my first time home. Terraform One is 250 sq ft built on a gooseneck trailer. I lived in the home for over a year before deciding to downsize.
With the wonderful construction style known as Structural Insulated Panels and the help of Patrick at Artisan Tiny House, we were able to get the shell of the Terraform Tiny House up in a weekend with a handful of volunteers who had never built a house before.
In a 3 days exhibit Terraform Tiny House saw over 5,000 visitors. During the event we had a total of 9 tiny houses on display, bringing in crowds that topped 130,000 people.
