Wind River Bungalow

My first tiny house building project took me about 14 months, doing 99% of the work myself when I had time on weekends and evenings. Over 800 hours went into planning and building this tiny house. I was able to use a good bit of reclaimed lumber and material for my project and I used mostly rough cut sawmill lumber for my exterior, interior, and trim.

A 204 square feet tiny house on wheels. Shared and built by Travis Pyke. More info. here.

      This is my Tiny House Crush! If I were to visualize what my perfect Tiny Home would be – THIS would be it. Except I live in MN and I never hear of tiny homes in cold climates which really sucks cause I’d plunk that beautiful work of art on a piece of land near Grand Marais and live happily ever after – until the winter when I’d probably freeze to death 🙂

        I live in MN also and I think heat could be easy and inexpensive. My concern is my 80# yellow lab she don’t ask for much but is very much an indoors girl.

          I live in MN, too. Check out the tiny home built by North Park Homes & Cabins in WI…they also build 24′ and under cabins on wheels, and will deliver. Have no connection with them other than love their cabins!

    One of the best kitchens I’ve seen.

      Dear Diane, My name is Beth, I am 50 years old and have some physical disabilities. I have been living in Morocco and have just recently came back to the states to get medical care and to start my life over again. I have been looking into the tiny house movement for a while now as it would suit my needs and appreciate any help I can get. You said you know this man. Is there any way to contact him? I looked at the bottom of the page and cannot find a link. Please contact me if there is anyone who is able to help me. Thanks, Beth

    It’s simply amazing! I love this Tiny House – it is so beautiful . We’re watching you from Denmark 🙂

    I would only have to modify the bed area, can’t climb to get to the bed. need one under it. That way I have one for visitor if needed. And sorry to say I am a little more prissy when it comes to the bathroom. Love the kitchen and the framing of the house. It is so far the closest I have liked yet.

    I could only hope my own Tiny Home ends half this nicely done. Impeccable job. Really lovely, with beautiful details and finish choices.

    Nicely detailed. The dormers improve the functionality of the loft without greatly complicating construction.

    Absolutely gorgeous!! Such fab inspiration, I love the cobbled floor in the bathroom. Is there any sort of seating area other than the table?

    Love it….
    I plan on building something similar here in Australia this year for me and the family to use as a holiday house come getaway. Maybe a bit bigger as I have 2 kids.

    Really beautiful. I just love the look of your tiny house and from the outside with what you’ve done to the grounds around the house makes it look so warm and inviting. The inside is absolutely gorgeous and if I had the money to build one I would hire you to do it! One day. ~~dream a little dream~~

    Out of all the tiny houses I have seen, this one speaks to my heart. It is magnificently built and the decor is perfect. Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful! So warm and cozy.

    Love it all but really love the flooring an extra bunch.

    The outside is charming, too!

    Congratulations!

    I think the workmanship is beautiful but the three different air fresheners in the bathroom concern me lol

    Beautiful! Would you accept green stamps and $250 a month? Er sorry no green stamps! Does it come with land?

    Love this house, especially the deck and siding! The kitchen is very usable as well, but where is the fridge? I’m assuming it’s under the counter, behind one of the sets of doors. One thing that bugs me in your design (any many other tiny houses) is the tiny front stoop. It’s basically just a spot to get out from the rain when opening the door, then the space directly inside is basically room to open the door. If you had eliminated the stoop and just had the deck, you would have almost doubled the living room space, and had room for more seating and/or storage. Just a thought for future builds. Overall though, I think this is a pretty sweet house!

    Love it. Love it, love it, love it, love it, love it. Did I say I love it? The exterior is a fantastic style/shape and the interior has been designed and decorated to my perfection. It’s wonderful. It’s on the ‘Home’ list.
