Fortune Cookie Tiny House on Wheels by Zyl Vardos


Don’t miss the interior shot below. I was fortunate enough to meet Abel while at the 2013 Tiny House Fair in Yestermorrow.


What would you use this tiny house for? Would you live in it? Travel with it? Or just use it as an extension of your current home?


Abel is an incredibly talented craftsman. I hope you’ll “Like” his Facebook Page and if you want you can also visit his website here. Currently he’s booked for nearly one year. But he’s worth the wait if you’re interested in having him design & build a tiny house for you. Also if you want to visit the Fortune Cookie Tiny House’s owner’s blog click here.

  1. That’s stunning, but the shape is quite limiting to how you would kit out/use the interior. It would be great for an office or even for a guest room in the garden, but I don’t know if you could live in it without some extremely creative designing. I guess it depends on the dimensions. I’m not sure you’d be able to put a sleeping loft in due to the shape of the roof. For me it seems quite church-like in style inside, while outside more like an upside down boat or a hobbit-like house lol.

    For living in, maybe I could go for this as the roof of a tiny house but have it on top of some higher, straight/vertical walls to allow for a kitchen, bathroom & sleeping loft?! (I dunno if that makes sense, I’m sleep deprived and over-caffeinated lol).

    1. There IS a loft, queen size bed! There is a bathroom, shower, and kitchenette… (FYI: I build this house)

      I build the cabinetry to fit the curved walls, and there are more photos of it on my website: and at (the owner’s blog.)

    2. ElTee wrote, “For me it seems quite church-like in style inside…”. THAT is the very 1st thing I thought, too, which is part of the attraction for me. My childhood Lutheran Church was built identical to this: they were going after an “ark” theme, but as a kid, I was always puzzled HOW an “upside down ark” could hold all the animals inside! (hey…I was a kid…don’t be hatin’!) LOL

      If I had this on the property, I’d have it tucked on the other side of the koi pond and make it a reading room/quiet room. Stunning design; very peaceful and organic.

    3. I wanted to add, for any future viewers, do yourself a favour and click on SOURCE to not only see many interior photos of this charmer but also several other tiny homes this master carpenter has created. I know that there has been loads of discussion about the rising costs of tiny homes for sale but in this man’s case, every dollar you spend on his homes is WORTH IT. You’re not only buying a gorgeous tiny home but you’re living INSIDE OF ART!!!

  2. I’ve been happily living in The Fortune Cookie for about 2 years now. 🙂 I have a bathroom, kitchen, and loft. I also entertain guests fairly regular with ease. Not to mention I work out of my home. It fits my needs perfectly. Abel did an excellent job.
