This Tiny Home and Writing Studio Was Invented for a Children’s Author


12. The newest model from New Frontier Tiny Homes was designed for bestselling author Cornelia Funke, and is now available for $125,000.

When acclaimed German children’s author Cornelia Funke, best known for the Inkheart trilogy, first contacted David Latimer of Nashville–based New Frontier Tiny Homes, she was living in Los Angeles and looking to buy beachside property. Additionally, she wanted to build an off-grid, tiny home on the property which could serve as both a writing studio and guest quarters for visiting friends. When she finally found the right piece of land, an old avocado farm near Zuma Beach in Malibu, she commissioned Latimar to craft a customized tiny home at his facility in Nashville, Tennessee.

The corrugated exterior echoes an old, corrugated shed on author Cornelia Funke’s Malibu property.
