-100% d.i.y. build by my wife and I with some helping hands here and there

-204 square feet, 24’ long tiny house on wheels

-$30,000.00 material cost.

-24 square foot externally accessible gear room for all of our outdoor gear effectively reducing the living space to 180 sf.

-Constructed with 2×3 advanced framing + 1” of Continuous exterior rigid insulation resulting in a wall that is the same thickness of traditional 2×4 framing yet it is lighter with much better thermal performance.

-The siding is 100% reclaimed from a local barn roof and has been installed as an integrated rain screen system.

Lastly, while our tiny house is unique in its own right, we are learning that people are drawn to our lifestyle as much or more than the physical tiny house. That is to say they find great appreciation for and inspiration by the simplicity and intentional way we live our lives, prioritizing our time to live life doing what we love (getting outside and into the mountains!) and how that is certainly enabled and encouraged by our tiny house. At least this is what we are picking up through the e-mails and comments on our Instagrams (@shed_tinyhouse, @expedition_pnw) and our SHEDsistence facebook page. We say this because now that our tiny house build is finished we think that our content will shift to sharing the simple, intentional, more meaningful and adventurous life we are able to live because of our tiny house.
