Feature in Campfire Magazine

Campfire magazine article.

 

The Nesthouse and I are happy to have been featured in an article in Campfire – the online magazine for those who love the outdoors.  They have written an excellent little article about Tiny Houses which gives a good contextual overview of this US phenomenon which has been part of my inspiration to create an innovative and sustainable new housing form.

The Nesthouse meets new friends!

The Nesthouse from Tiny House Scotland.

We had a family party this weekend with friends and family travelling long distances to visit and celebrate Jo’s birthday.  As a by-product, this also amounted to the Nesthouse’s debut public event with around 40 curious party-goers taking the tour!

Mind you, it has had quite a few previous visits at various stages of construction by potential clients, but not in it’s new location and virtually finished (we won’t mention the bathroom yet!).

It was an exhausting but rewarding couple of hours showing people around and explaining the ideas behind the Nesthouse.  The feedback was tremendous and at times embarrassingly fulsome and gushing (for me)!  Those familiar with my design styling and details over the years certainly spotted them and declared it totally “Jonathan”. There were several people ready to “move in immediately” and a couple of possible sales leads too.  All in all a reassuring debut for the project…I’m a happy boy!!
