Seasons are changing in Nelson, which serves not only as a reminder to get more firewood in the shed, but also that a significant amount of time has passed since our last blog post. As autumn approaches, we're happy to be finishing up three new tiny houses for three separate clients in BC and in Alberta. Our BC house, which we shipped to a beautiful piece of land on the side of a mountain, overlooking a lake, is our biggest tiny house yet, a 300 plus sq. ft. V House. This house is a thing of beauty. As you can see, we shipped this house without the roof, in order to meet width requirements for the highway. We installed the roof on site, and finished it with a copper coloured standing seam metal roof. So classy. We are still working on a tiny video tour, but we do have a few photos of the move and some glamour shots of the house itself. Check these out.
Our second project is almost ready to ship. It's a slight departure from our previous builds because it is in fact a tiny office, and not a tiny house. The regional government in the Nelson area put out a tender for an office for the local transfer station (what many of us continue to call “the dump”). Our bid was accepted and we're now wrapping up the interior of a 12 foot by 8 foot V House that will serve as the pay station for the transfer station. It's exciting for us to get our work recognized by folks beyond the tiny house movement. Pictures of this are forthcoming.
Our third project is an Acorn House that will soon call Alberta home. At 20 feet by 9 feet, it's a more spacious version of our current off the grid Acorn that is still for sale. We are starting on the interior finishing on this house and will also post photos and shoot a video tour before it makes its way across the Rockies to the flatlands.
