You may remember that our tiny house was a contender in the 2016 Tiny House of the year contest last month. We had asked for your help turning this dream of ours into an award winning one, and we are here to report the final results after these showed up in our mailbox today!

It was a competitive field of mostly professionally built tiny homes in which we entered eight of the twelve categories, winning FOUR of them and being the ‘first runner-up’ in all of the remaining categories we entered.

So…that’s like four first places and four second places in the 2016 Tiny House of the Year contest; you guys ROCK! We really appreciate everyone who took a minute to vote for SHED and are honored to come in second for ‘Overall Tiny House of the Year’ which was awarded to the equally awesome home of Ms. Gypsy Soul, which you’ve probably seen before, including on HGTV’s tiny house big living!

  1. Congratulations guys! I have checked many THOWs and your’s is my favourite. Thanks for sharing your experience.

  2. Congratulations! Well merited especially considering the awe inspiring documentation (videos, instructional books, etc) process in tandem with the build process. Genuinely very, very inspirational.
    A testament to the possibilities resulting from hard work and ingenuity. Cheers.
