One of a Kind Tiny House Retreat in the Woods!

“It was a dream conceived in two separate minds years before Chris (a New Yorker with over 20 years of fine carpentry experience) and Melanie (a rustic reclaimed woodworker for the past decade) would even meet or collaborate on their first project: What would it look like to squeeze all of the comfort and amenities of a full-sized luxury home into a tiny, fully-mobile footprint? When they met and first began discussing their common love for tiny living, it was clear that their collective building experience and aesthetic sense was a recipe for something truly special.

In the wake of our first collaboration, a successful rustic-industrial AirBnB in Arlington called Escape, an investor made us an offer we couldn’t refuse: carte blanche to design and build the luxury tiny home of our dreams, so long as it abided by the same aesthetics we had executed in Escape. With so many tiny homes being built with amazing bells and whistles, our plan was get back to tiny house basics and build a tiny rustic/industrial home with a focus on craftsmanship, just like we would if we were building a full-sized luxury home — a quick (perhaps 4-6 month) and ostensibly lucrative endeavor that would see a common dream realized, a healthy payday for all involved, and our largest collaborative project to date.

Beautifully crafted tiny house kitchen

With a limited budget and the limited resources of the shires of Vermont, we sourced whatever materials we could from local businesses, going so far as to travel on a whim to the southern Adirondacks to personally reclaim the priceless barnwood from a mid-19thcentury barn that had been destroyed by one of the recent Nor’Easters. That wood would become one of the most notable aesthetic highlights of The Hemingway’s interior design.

Look at that shine on these beautiful wood countertops!

The trailer arrived from Tiny House Basics in January of 2018. We got started right away building in the space allotted to us – an uncovered driveway in southern Vermont – and battled Mother Nature all the way. We got hit with four Nor Easter’s in the first month, and countless storms after that. The weather delayed the job significantly…

but ten months later, The Hemingway luxury tiny home sits on a subdivided plot with full utilities, just a stone’s throw from Escape. While we had expected to subcontract some of the build to other contractors, we completed the entire build from the trailer up as a duo, save for Vermont Foam Insulation to spray foam the place as well as a few custom welding jobs.

A View of the Cozy Living Room!

Most homes hold in their bones a measure of the blood, sweat, and tears shed by those who designed and built them. The Hemingway is a veritable vault of perseverance, DIY resourcefulness, and resiliency that finds its root in the ethos of tiny home living: to do the best and the most with the resources available in that place and time.”

So much love for this porthole mirror!
