I want to share with you all an amazing resource for gaining tiny house sponsorship, written by my friend, Andrew Odom. (scroll down to the bottom of the Tiny r(E)voliution store to find it). History In 2014 Andrew Odom of Tiny r(E)volution was answering questions daily about how he approached sponsorships and how he had managed to get so many sponsors on board of both his personal build and some project builds he had been working on. While he had been answering the questions faithfully he was also working on a book, almost a manual, if you will, that […]
Gary played an important role in helping me design The Tiny Project house — he consulted on some general design ideas and helped formulate an electrical/plumbing plan including wiring diagrams needed for my electrician to make sense of it all. He’s a great guy — extremely knowledgeable and experienced — who continues to seek work helping others to design their tiny houses. If you are in need of some tiny house design consulting, look no further than Gary Bute. For those of you who don’t know, his company is called Tiny House Systems. Here’s a little more about Gary and […]
This article was originally written a few months ago for my friend Drew’s new book, GAINING CORPORATE SPONSORS for your tiny house. I reprint it here with permission. See more about the new book at the bottom of this post. During my tiny house build, while I didn’t get anyone to just “give me” things for free, I did receive some meaningful discounts and made some great connections in the process. Even now, in our search for the perfect place to park, I am realizing that the process of gaining “sponsorship” for my tiny house boils down to a few […]

Any donations will go towards gas and RV park fees during our week+ road trip. Thank you! (You can also donate at any time in the future through the donate button on top right of each page of this site.)
In the short time since the foam was done last weekend, I’ve already had more than enough foam dust fall from the ceiling into my hair and eyes, so I figured getting the ceiling covered up was a good place to start. I was also very excited to get started with the sustainable beetle-kill pine paneling that I had received a while ago and was just sitting under a tarp waiting for me. The Sustainable Lumber Company product is really beautiful. It has lots of variation in color (from clear light pine color, to gray, blue, green, and even some […]
Today was exciting because I placed an order for some very cool (and 100% sustainable) Beetle Kill Blue Stain Pine from the Sustainable Lumber Company. Thank you Ryan for the discounted price. I’m more than happy to add you to my list of sponsors! Through use of dead, standing old-growth Poderosa Pine (killed by the latest pine beetle outbreak), the lumber is super eco-friendly and has a very unique and beautiful look. I’m excited to one day look up at this on my ceiling! Unlike most beetle kill pine on the market, ours is much different. We literally hand select […]
Just started a funding campaign. Generous sponsors will receive on-site demos or even a 3-night stay in the completed house! Check it out!
