Tiny Home Inspired by Tiny Homes Book

Hi Lloyd,

I saw your email address in today’s Instagram pics of the Muir Beach tractor, and thought I’d send you some photos of a little shed I made in our backyard, when we lived in Chico [California], eight years ago. I got the idea from the cover of your Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter. I love that book!

For some reason, I can’t find a picture of my completed shed, with the door installed. I used to love to sit on that little porch, in the early evening, with a beer and a great view of my garden.

We’ve moved to Sandpoint, in North Idaho, and love it. Life is good Lloyd! Keep those pictures coming.

Cheers ~ Rich
