I am excited to announce the development of 5 new Tiny House Models over the coming months. The first of which will be the Boulder. This Tiny House will be a study for a more modern, streamlined, lightweight structure that is super affordable yet chock full of good design. Drawings are being completed as we speak and construction will begin next week. This house will feature a single slope lean-to roof from front to back, rainscreen siding comprised of wood plank and galvanized metal, and a contemporary use of windows. I don’t have any images or drawings ready to show yet, but here are some Boulder houses that will serve as inspiration.
My great journey across the Rockies in Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming has provided exceptional inspiration for the other four models. It is with great pride that I present to you the makings of Stanley, Whitefish, Bitterroot Valley, and Teton.
Stanley- This model will draw from the small structure heritage surrounding the wonderful town of Stanley, ID in the foothills of the spectacular Sawtooth Mountains. I really like the feel of Stanley, both from a natural and human built sense. It is a small, authentic, rugged little mountain town, yet a great place to get away from it all, and a great home base for mountain adventure.
Whitefish– Whitefish, Montana serves as the primary gateway to Glacier National Park. There is no shortage of mountain fun in this town including biking, hiking, skiing, camping, and of course, exploring the Crown of the Coninent. The town itself has a little bit of a resort feel to it, but the vibe is nice, even for blue collar folk like me. The architecture here, although varied in materials and size, has a consistent language that I think will translate very nicely to a Tiny House
The Bitterroot Valley is a scenic stretch of land extending from Missoula, MT south all the way down Sula near the Idaho border. The valley is flanked by the Bitterroot Mountains to the west and the Sapphire mountains to the east. I was originally going to name this model the Hay Loft. It is a tribute to the many spectacular old barn structures still in existence that dot all of the valleys of the Rocky Mountains. Of all these valleys that I’ve had the pleasure of visiting, none had more structures still surviving and with such great mountain feels as the Bitteroot Valley.
Teton- Before I even left for my trip, I wanted to develop a Tiny House design inspired by the Tetons of western Wyoming. After seeing seeing and exploring Grand Teton National Park, there was no doubt in my mind that it would happen. I’m not quite sure yet how this almighty mountain range and landscape will translate into a house design, but somehow it will.
With all this said, I’ve got my work cut out for me! Stay tuned for updates.
PS The NEW website is almost fully armed and operational! I hope you like it!
