The Rogue Tiny House Emerges

The Rogue Tiny House, the project I’ve been building for about a year, is finally on its way to its new home outside Dolores, Colorado. Erica and I bought a 4.5-acre parcel near the confluence of the Dolores River and the West Fork of the Dolores River, with plenty of room for the Rogue and Atelier E, her tiny house. It’s a stunningly beautiful area with endless options for muckin’ around outside. Durango, Colorado, is about 70 minutes to the southeast, and Telluride, Colorado, is about 70 minutes to the northeast.

We need to finish the interiors of the two homes, as well as set up plumbing, electricity, and so on. When the building part is done, we will make one or both houses available on AirBnb. We’re looking forward to visitors!

It’s a snug fit back at the build site in the Oregon forest, but that tiny house will emerge unscathed.

The Tiny House Is Under Construction

The tiny house is under construction!

Here’s the nearly completed design for my first tiny house build. I came up with most of it, with help from my partner, Erica, who is also building a tiny house. My friend, architect John Fitzpatrick, set it all up in CAD, including the framing plan. Great to have real plans to work from. I bought the 26′ trailer from Iron Eagle Trailers in Gresham, Oregon.

This is getting close to finished; just details left.
