Just to answer to that claim, Luke and Tina — both of whom work as engineers — designed a 204 sq. ft. solar-powered tiny home on wheels themselves and hired a contractor (from Daystar Tiny Homes) to build it. The home, which resides on a 40 acre farm on the foothills of Mt. Hood, features a living area, two lofts, a bathroom, kitchen, and plenty of storage throughout, while the rooftop balcony accessible via a small hobbit door from the sleeping loft.
The house features live edge redwood slabs and 12″ redwood panels all around, giving it a mountaineering look and feel (and it doesn’t hurt that there’s a large gear cabinet in the rear that houses all of their outdoor gear. That rooftop deck/balcony is actually FULLY walkable and waterproof. Going back to storage, the house features hide-away space savers like a dining room table, coffee table, chairs, doors, drying rack, and storage that can’t be seen. The home can function completely off-grid, as it features solar power, a rainwater harvesting system, on-board propane and a composting toilet.
