Between 2008 and 2010, Flueckiger and his architecture students at Texas Tech University set out to build their own low-cost, sustainable tiny dwelling in a West Texas pasture outside of the town Crowell. Their inspiration was twofold. The first model was Henry David Thoreau's legendary cabin near Walden Pond in Massachusetts, built between 1845 and 1847. The other was Le Corbusier's Cabanon, completed in 1952 on the French Riviera.
