Zyl Vardos are Olympia, Washington’s tiny house wizards. Founded by Abel Zimmerman Zyl in 2007, Zyl Vardos is a building company that deserves all the recognition that they get for their stunning tiny house designs. There is just something magical about their wheeled home creations, which look like something that came out of a wondrous fairy tale.
Zimmerman, who has been in the building business since 1994, should be commended for his creative endeavors. He found his passion for carpentry at a very young age, building his own self-designed boat by the time he was in college. That boat project propelled him to look into building tiny homes, as he pursued a way to re-purpose the vessel’s old materials. The rest, as you will soon find out, is history.
We are celebrating Zimmerman’s and Zyl Vardos’ craftsmanship by throwing back to one of their classical concoctions. The Fortune Cookie wheeled home is among their best known designs, gaining some much deserved attention when it was first built in 2011. Since then, Zyl Vardos has built other custom-made Fortune Cookies, but we want to take you back to where it all began.
So, without further ado, let’s step inside the magical wonder that is the Fortune Cookie wheeled home.
One look at the outside, and you will quickly understand why this quaint little abode has been dubbed with its quirky name. The very first Fortune Cookie has an 18-foot (5.4-meter) dewdrop deckover design, which includes a cupola roof that has been especially created to endure all types of weather conditions.
This marvelous abode is an artisan masterpiece. The unique, playful combination of geometric shapes is a motif throughout the Fortune Cookie, and everything just seems to fall into place with flawless precision.
Zyl Vardos’ Fortune Cookie brings an artistic and magical flair to tiny living. The care and precision in the handcrafted details, as well as the charming combination of the best geometric designs, make this wheeled home a true piece of marvel.
