The Shackteau is a tiny rustic house that is 8 feet by 8 feet and 19 feet high. The lumber used for this tiny house is left over slabs from the milling done on a family piece of land in Southern, Indiana. The interior walls of the space are a combination of earth plaster and stucco. The front deck of the Shackteau is four feet wide roughly sawn slabs of Red Oak.
The insulation for this tiny house is basic loose straw infill, that is supported on the bottom by burlap. This tiny house fits in perfect with its forest location, and is a nice space to getaway, play some music or read a book. The Shackteau is a good example of a tiny house design that uses recycled and reclaimed building materials and makes a fun space without having to spend a whole lot of money. The Dr. Suess chimney was added and then removed by one of the residents of the tiny house space.
The Shackteau tiny house design is from Carpenter Owl builders. The Carpenter Owl Studio is located in Bloomington, Indiana. The tiny house builders believe in building homes that are free of chemicals and allergens, and try to use reclaimed and locally sourced building materials whenever possible.
