Have you heard of the Hobbitat eco friendly tiny home line? The Maryland company created by husband and wife team – Sue and Bill Thomas – to encourage sustainable living on a smaller scale.
At Hobbitat they specialize in homes that are made of reusable and reclaimed materials; are approximately 250 square feet, can sleep up to 4 people and are usually built in less than 6 weeks.
The tiny eco home line is meant to introduce a new way of living to those who are environmentally conscious as much as they are for the frugal minded – since smaller homes have much lower operating costs as well.
Below founder Bill Thomas, explains the a bit about the reusable and reclaimed concept behind his Hobbitat company:
“The Hobbitat team travels from Buffalo, N.Y., to Charlottesville, N.C., to find materials for their micro-cabins, buying wood from old railways and salvaging doors from old Baltimore neighborhoods. Anything can be repurposed in a hob. Old air horns and buckets are turned into light fixtures, stained glass from old buildings is rescued and installed in windows.”
