Former boat builder constructs stunning, self-sufficient tiny home

Homeowner Briar Hale enlisted Jeff Hobbs of Room to Move to build a home that’s as eco-friendly as it is stylish. Along with plenty of off-the-grid technologies, the space features hardwood floors and sophisticated trim work. To maximize the minimal space, ex-boat builder Hobbs filled the home with smart storage solutions and convertible funriture. Since moving into her new home, Hale has turned the pint-sized space into her own magical spot—perfect for private getaways and intimate gatherings.
