Inspired by the Barbara Cooney illustrations in "Miss Rumphius," a children's book he read to his daughters, Bruno Schickel designed and built Boiceville Cottages beginning in 1996. 

140 tiny houses and two dog parks later, Boiceville Cottages is complete. If the mood strikes, follow @boiceville_ on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for tiny house shots, community photos, and local events. 

A second tiny house community is on its way. In 2016 Bruno began building La Bourgade on Seneca, a second tiny house community—this time on the hillside overlooking Seneca Lake. Located in Burdett, New York and surrounded by award-winning wineries and distilleries, La Bourgade on Seneca is currently offering 12-month leases for the first nine tiny houses, which will be ready in Spring 2017.
