This week’s tiny house in a landscape at Tiny House Blog is a Lodgepole Guard Station near Crater Lake, Oregon.
“This is a picture of the Lodgepole Guard Station located just south of Crater Lake, Oregon. The guard station is a historical cabin that was constructed to help aid in watching for Japanese bombers during WWII. It is a wonderful, secluded place tostay if you are in the Crater Lake area. There is much more information included on the Forest Service website.“

This isn’t tiny but nice and small, but seems like a very livable size for this small family.
“Portland, Oregon-based interior designer Jessica Helgerson has been living, for the past year, “rather experimentally in a 540-square-foot cottage on five acres of farmland.” She and her family raise chickens, turkeys, bees, and grow their own food.”

Brian at I Stock House Plans sent a link to this free floating tiny tender house in Portland, Oregon. The ad appears on craigslist. Just in case the ad gets removed I took a screenshot and added it below. It’s amazing what people give away on craigslist. Thanks for the tip Brian!
Free Floating Tiny House
Last night while exploring YouTube I ran across this incredible simple living resource that focuses on how settlers in Oregon once lived. They’ve even built a few replica structures like this log cabin. The focus of the project is on survival, primitive skills, nature awareness, pioneer and urban homesteading.

One of my readers, Rich, pointed this Oregon based tiny house builder out to me. From the look of things they offer a wide range of small cottages at reasonable prices. Many of the designs look like traditional cottages, not all look like this hobbit house inspired house. Thanks again Rich!
Katy Anderson and Dee Williams are launching a new tiny house business, The Portland Little House Construction Co. Both Katy and Dee have a lot of tiny house living and building experience and I suspect the homes they build will rival Tumbleweed Tiny Houses in quality but will have a style all of their own.
Based in Berlin ZENDOME manufactures the cool geodesic dome pictured here. They are priced a bit on the premium side and not exactly meant to be a year round home but seeing their great photos reminded me of the wonderful advantages of a dome home.
So then I did a quick search for a Ashland, Oregon based dome manufacturer I’d run across in the past called Pacific Domes. These folks make some very nice livable dome kits in addition to the kinds of domes ZENDOME makes. The skins are also textile based but some insulation and weather-proofing options are available. If you’ve often wondered what a small cabin dome home would be like be sure to check out Pacific Domes.
Zoey and friends are also making great progress. She bought some Tumbleweed tiny house plans and did a lot of scavenging herself. The trailer she’s building her house on is from an old travel trailer and many of the building materials were sourced off craigslist for cheap and free. Continue Reading…
Tammy over at RowdyKittens took a trip to Oregon last week and came back with some amazing photos and details about some cottages in Portland’s Missippippi district. She also posted a bunch of her photos on Flickr.
