Silver Bullet Tiny House Receives Award

So honored that my Silver Bullet Tiny House won the best ‘Tiny Home’ award out of 90 tiny structures on wheels at the Florida Tiny House Festival this month. I was also honored to be chosen as Renogy’s Solar Ambassador to the festival and am so pleased to be powered by Renogy.

I purchased my 2nd generation solar solution for the 5 year old tiny home early this year and love being powered solely by renewable energy. You can learn more about my choice here.

The eBook is Here: Living the Sustainable Tiny Life


LTSTLNewBookCoverFlat
Achieving a sustainable tiny lifestyle can be hard work, involving physical and emotional challenges. It requires character building and shedding layers of consumptive baggage.

Some call the journey daunting, overwhelming, and difficult, at best. And you know what, it does not have to be.

It was the best experience of my life!  It was transformative socially, physically, spiritually, morally and intellectually.  You will hear my story and learn about my path to leaving the debt culture behind, how to live a more compassionate, healthy and authentic sustainable lifestyle.

Part 1 of Living the Sustainable Tiny Life* is all about my tiny sustainable soul’s journey to an amazingly rewarding authentic sustainable lifestyle, from its fledgling beginnings to present day.

Part 2 takes you through the build process of the Silver Bullet Tiny House. This book is not a construction guide although it gives you plenty of pictures and details of the resource and design choices I made to actualize the challenge I set for myself in 2012.

Part 3  the Silver Bullet Tiny House and I are going on tour. I hope this e-book can inspire others with the lessons I’ve learned so far living tiny.


Comments about the book:

“It isn’t often you read a book that is grounded in the tiny house movement that touches on such a rich autobiographical history. Chronicling her career(s) in finance, redevelopment, visual art, and education, author Vera Struck builds her reasons for tackling the Silver Bullet Tiny House challenge she set for herself.
If you want to read an incredible book about someone who picked herself up by her bootstraps, found something she is passionate about, went for it, and is living large to tell the tale — then read this book. It’s a story of survival, personal growth and enlightenment towards a more sustainable American Dream.”
 
Andrew Odom, co-founder of Tiny r(E)volution and author of YOUR MESSAGE HERE: Gaining Corporate Sponsors for Your Tiny House Project

“Vera Struck certainly rocks with the power of several Vikings. Well into her sixties, she decides, “I want to design, and build, an off-grid, sustainable, tiny house that will serve as a traveling class room”, and does. She’s equal parts piss, vinegar, and infused-caffeine, not to mention damn driven.”

-Derek “Deek” Diedricksen (Author of “Microshelters”, Relaxshacks.com, and host/designer of HGTV’s “Tiny House Builders”)
“In Living the Sustainable Tiny Life, Vera Struck tells us a tiny house story that is uniquely her own. It is an inspiring journey that will help you make important realizations about what you want in your tiny house journey. While many of us are driven to the tiny house lifestyle seeking freedom from the debt culture, Vera’s story is full of hardship, challenges overcome, and proof that anyone can achieve a tiny house if they know their “why” and “how”. Once I started reading Living the Sustainable Tiny Life, I couldn’t put it down. In addition to Vera’s inspiring personal journey, she gives the reader a detailed look at how and why she designed each element of her house the way that she did. I was surprised to learn that she managed to get her floor to have an R value of 33 with an ingenious design and construction method. I definitely recommend this book for anyone considering but isn’t sure if they can gain the skills required to do it themselves. Living the Sustainable Tiny Life will give you the kick you need to get moving!”

Living the Sustainable Tiny Life

Vera conceived a sustainability bucket list five years ago. She says the projects to design a zero waste lifestyle, create only reclamation art, design a net-zero tiny house and build it by herself were quite the challenge. The Silver Bullet Tiny House is now complete and will become a traveling education exhibit.

We are delighted to announce that she will be speaking at the 1st Tiny House Jamboree, August 7-9, about her tiny house journey.

Vera will be releasing her book, Living the Sustainable Tiny Life, in July.

Meet the reclamation artist and tiny house builder
