Pittsburgh 1

Pittsburgh 1 (Photo credit: ctj71081)

I’m a thirty-something girl who lives and works in Pittsburgh, PA.  Inspired by the tiny house movement, I decided to embark on building my own small but not tiny home.  I started a company called urbanHAUS properties which has one mission:  beautify Pittsburgh’s vacant, urban infill lots one small house at a time.  My eco-conscience guides every decision in this process.  urbanHAUSes are energy star rated, solar-powered, and non-toxic to the environment.  Each one is thoughtfully designed to fit its site, sustainable, and comfortable.

This blog is a chronicle of the making of each urbanHAUS from start to finish.  Get a behind the scenes look at the design decisions, pitfalls and successes and general musings about this process.  Ultimately, watch a piece of land go from an empty vacant lot to a place called home.
