Marc Shares His Tiny Story
My journey into the tiny house movement came from my desire to go tiny and searching to find a legal place to park my tiny house. When I was unable to find a location I decided to build a tiny house community and solve that problem for others. I sold my home and purchased property to build the Manor Tiny Wildlife Resort, in Manor Texas. In my effort to secure permitting I had to go beyond the local permitting office to accomplish the task, and met with our Travis County Commissioner, and the On Site Septic Facility (OSSF) coordinator at the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). As a result Travis County has since written rules for tiny house dwellers within the County. It took 18 months to go through this process before we got our permits to build our community. I have dedicated my time, and resources to advancing this movement.
My work in the tiny house industry began with building the community above, and building sustainable tiny houses for our customers. Recently, I have recognized the need to educate and equip the public interested in the tiny house movement. My goal is to teach them the proper construction techniques and plow the road ahead of them so they can live their tiny dreams.
