  1. This was the first tiny house I ever saw online a few years ago when I found Kiera (spelled?) on Etsy. . Fell in love with it, though my son and I need something a bit bigger. Planning and dreaming. ?

  2. I’m still in awe of your skills Abel! The Fortune Cookie is a great! I’m always going to treasure the time shared with you at the Tiny House Living Festival! I’m looking forward to sharing with you my Pirate Ship Tiny House when it’s built! Ciao!

  3. So very charming ! Too small for my comfort, but I like how real furniture was used in here, rather than same old box couch. All your designs are wonderful !

  4. Zyl, your builds are amazing. I am currently working on ideas to build out my 2017 Nissan NV2500 van. You are providing inspiration.

  5. I miss the original Fortune Cookie and dear Kera. This tiny home was the reason I fell in love with tiny homes. I’m happy to say I’ve been able to visit Kera in the Fortune Cookie!
