Christian Hoffman, a 2011 graduate of Maharishi University of Management, recently completed the construction of a tiny mobile cabin he designed according to the principles of Maharishi Vedic architecture.

Christian has always been interested in building. His father has worked in construction for 40 years. The Hoffman family moved to Fairfield from Washington State in 2000, so that the children could attend Maharishi School. They built their own home, and later Christian designed his first home, a 500-square-foot (46.5-square-meter) cottage, which he and his father, Eric, built together.

While studying at MUM, Christian became interested in Maharishi Vastu buildings. ''A lot of my friends lived in Vastu homes and when I spent time there I felt a very supportive and clean atmosphere,'' Christian said. ''That's why I decided my next tiny house would be built according to Vastu.''

Christian took a directed studies course where he learned about architecture and Vastu design. During that course, he drew the plans for the 200-square-foot (18.6-square-meter) Vastu cabin. He and his father built it in three months this spring.

''I was really excited to watch this project blossom,'' said Jon Lipman, AIA, director of Fortune-Creating Buildings. ''There is a huge desire in Fairfield for tiny, affordable Vastu homes. Christian and Eric have shown us what the solution can look like, and more than that, they are offering turnkey solutions to our community.''
