Tiny House Built of Recycled Materials in England

Hi there,

My Dad was featured in one of Lloyds books, Tiny Homes, for building the wooden yurt Big Sky Retreat.

Recently he has been building another cabin called Big Sky Lookout, which is smaller than the yurt, but still made up of reused and recycled stuff. I made a short film following his progress along the way.

Many thanks,

Red Evans
