Custom non-toxic tiny house built by Ben Garratt and the Tiny Healthy Homes team, completed in April 2021. Situated on a beautiful plot of land, part of a kibbutz-inspired cohousing community in the desirable Mad River Valley. The cohousing community sits on 93 acres of mostly forested land with cross-country skiing and hiking trails, an organic farm with chickens and sheep, and a sugaring operation. There is also a lovely brand new community common house. The 10ft x 30ft tiny house sits on the edge of the woods, close to the center of the community but with plenty of privacy, with a large cedar deck facing into the forest. All of the components in this home were chosen for their non-toxic and sustainability characteristics.

From the Mad River Byway website:

come for the mountains, stay for the valley

The Mad River Byway may be short in length - at a mere 36 miles - but foot by foot, it offers up an enthralling density of experiences. Following two of Vermont's most scenic roads, Routes 100 and 100B, this valley is a landscape of forested mountains, hillside farms, a flowing river, and church-steepled villages. Destination ski resorts are located uphill, and downhill the destination is the villages - all rich in history, culture, historic buildings, town greens, community activities and special events. Throw in a hyper-local food scene and entertainment and festivals year round, and you have a region worthy of exploring for a day, a week, or a lifetime.
