The Vintage Retreat Tiny House combines whimsical with minimalism to create a romantic design. The farmhouse inspiration was handcrafted by Hill Country Tiny Houses and voted “Best in show” at the National Tiny House Jamboree 2017. It was also in the top 10 most popular tiny houses on Instagram in 2017.

Todd and Shari Snyder built it for their own family of three. It’s proven to be a well-loved favorite for clients everywhere.  They love the abundance of natural light combined with the color palette that contrasts white ship lap with barn wood throughout.  The well thought out floor plan provides efficiency and everything you need at your fingertips without any wasted space.  The design details of unique shelving, stained glass windows, and barn doors, adds to its charm and warm feeling.  People often comment about the peace they feel immediately upon stepping inside and how they never want to leave. It’s a perfect blend of functionality and beauty families will thrive in for years to come.

What was our Design Inspiration for the Vintage Retreat?

My inspiration for the Vintage Retreat came from the farm house my grandfather remodeled for his family from an 1885 stagecoach stop. The old white shiplap and rustic wood floors take me back to my childhood days. My husband and I put a lot of thought into this design as we were moving out of our 2200 square foot forever home into 384 square feet with our 11 year old son. Father and son worked all summer building our own tiny house. We have now been living in it for a year and a half. Our adventure has led us to 4 different campgrounds in 4 different cities, each with a different culture, new friendships, and learning experience to make our lives richer. We highly recommend tiny-living for anyone who wants to experience more freedom, more family time, and more adventure. 
The decision to downsize was twofold:  
    1. Authenticity:  to live what we teach about simple living and have experiences to share with our clients and improve our product.
    2. Burn our mortgage: financial freedom enabled us to invest more time and money to grow our new company
