Tiny homes in Portland

Tiny homes in Portland are attracting everyone from millennials to retirees. While at the Build Small, Live Large Summit, I toured a few tiny homes set up on the Portland State University campus. The two best designs were the Escape Traveler and the container from Modern Dwellings.

A container project from Modern Dwellings, with excellent design and execution. The charred cedar siding is a traditional Japanese technique called “Shou Sugi Ban.”
