When Fritz Mead moved to NYC, there wasn’t any space left in his friends’ house for him, so he came up with an idea – he’d just build his own room. Moving into their backyard, Fritz built a tiny 1 person house entirely from scratch, where he lives and sleeps in all year round. The project went so well that he started expanding, using the micro house as the foundation for the construction of a full sized bowl. These days you can stop by the backyard anytime and find a healthy crew of people hanging out, skating and enjoying the fruits of Fritz and his friends’ labor. Continuing our locals series, we skated over to Bedstuy in Brooklyn and documented Fritz’s story with support of Levi’s Skateboarding.
