Jay Shafer has been designing and building tiny houses since the late 90s. Through his company, Four Lights Houses, he sells tiny-house plans, from a 98-square-foot miniature Craftsman called the Zinn to the 288-square-foot Marie Colvin, whose pint-sized columns are embellished with stonework… For the past two years, he’s been working on a village of his designs. Currently hes considering four potential sites, all within a five-minute walk of downtown Sebastopol, and is in talks with local officials about his plans. Shafer says he hopes to break ground on the village this year.” – Curbed SF
