Tiny home is modern housing alternative
Kristopher Angstadt grew up hunting and fishing in bucolic backwoods sprinkled with tiny, tucked-away cabins.
These little living quarters, set in the woods or upon a lakeshore, intrigued him from childhood, said Angstadt, who has spent the last 13 years building and renovating area homes.
Among his projects are city houses on narrow infill lots that measure no more than 15 feet across. So, tiny houses—a burgeoning market focused on smaller, simplified living—seemed like a natural fit for the Fredericksburg-based contractor.
A year ago, Angstadt founded Tiny House Building Company, headquartered on Lafayette Boulevard, where an 8- by 24-foot model home secured upon a steel trailer regularly catches the eye of passersby.
