November 15, 2012 podcast – interview with Sicily Kolbeck

Today we are joined in the studio by Sicily Kolbeck; a 12-year-old tiny house aficionado and all around dynamic young lady. A student at the Honey Fern school in Marietta, GA, Kolbeck is poised to be the world’s youngest known tiny house builder.

Sicily runs the blog La Petite Maison and has been featured on Tiny House Talk. She is a vocal advocate for conscientious living and small living as a way to cut pollution, control spending, and become more independent.

On her blog she has allowed us to tag along as she came to the conclusion a tiny house would be a good fit for her, began her layout with a bubble plan, taped out her interior, and began to gather materials. All in all it is a huge undertaking but one we are so thrilled to have her talk about.

    Amazing! If she can build it and be satisfied then adults who spend more time at work than at home can enjoy tiny home living as well!

      Awesome! Another Georgia company. I love that the Southeast is stepping on to the tiny house map. We have the possibility of giving the Northwest a run for its money! Glad to have had you Sicily.
