Our first model is a 280sq ft house, built on a 20ft trailer. It is a proudly Canadian version of a tiny house, featuring carvings and Aboriginal art. Our roof rafters are curved in the shape of sklelten (Shuswap word for salmon), and the roofline intersects and barrels. We’ve designed it to be used longer-term as a guest house, with an open and spacious feel. You walk in and say “aaaaaahhh I could stay here for a while..!” Both ladders were lots of fun to design, and the spiralling ladder is surprisingly comfortable to use! We have a Youtube channel detailing “how-to’s” for many of the custom features – and how do-able they really are. We’re working on our next design – a more simplified version that will be easier to build, but equally beautiful!
