The tiny home building site is getting exposed to all kinds of weather. From snow to sun to ice to rain, the boards are experiencing January at its finest. If weather cooperates, it will not be long before we can have the exterior weather-proofed.
Welcome home 😊 More pics of this bright, airy tiny UP NOW on our site (link in bio)! Tag someone who would love an entrance like this!
The 24’ “Peponi” tiny house by @perchandnest! What I love about this home is the tons of windows on every corner of this home—natural light everywhere! 🤓
Although the van is an art piece in itself, we’ve always wanted something special for the walls. For the last 7 months of living in the van, we’ve been searching for the right piece to put up. Well, finally with the Christmas money we had, we were able to buy some art that really means something to us. On the right, a 2018 Moon Phase calendar by @moonbodysoul so we can continue to plan adventures by the sky. On the left, two beautiful pictures of the Leo & Cancer Star Constellations (our signs) by @blackandthemoon. It’s a small add, but it sure does feel a little more like home.
(Also, I obviously wasn’t paying attention and put the Leo one upside down... When I tried to fix it I scratched the picture so I decided to just accept my mistake as the clumsy Leo I am).
Thanks to the more than 100 Sitkans who came out to our Tongass Tiny Home Open House, and thanks to our partners who made the Tongass Tiny Home Project happen! It was awesome to share the hard work of the students in Sitka High School’s advanced construction class and to learn together about the sustainable young growth lumber they used to build the tiny home.
Contact us for more information on the Tongass Tiny Home, local young growth timber, regional youth workforce development programs, and sustainable housing!

We are making a lot of progress. The pine from the ceiling continues down the walls. The currently exposed plywood will be hidden under the bed. Our plan for the bed has changed from a queen to a full sized mattress in order to give us some storage space on one of the sides.
The floor is waterproof. That was very important to us for the build. We went with a reclaimed wood kinda look but in a rubber flooring material. Super easy to work with and shouldn’t really expand or contract with temperature changes.
