Basecamp Tiny House

The types of hobbies you usually expect couples to share range from reading to, if they’re a little wild, doing triathlons or skydiving together. Tina and Luke Orlando, however, were more interested in designing and building their own totally of-the-grid tiny house, the Basecamp, from scratch in Northern Oregon.

Using their backgrounds in civil and mechanical engineering the two designed a home that has all of the comforts of living in a larger space condensed into a small two story 204 square foot space, and then had it built by Day Star Homes. When you walk up and enter through the door, visitors will find themselves with a living room to their right that features a couch that can also serve as a guest bed, with convenient storage loft for all of the Orlando’s climbing and hiking gear sitting above it. From that couch in the living room, you can see right into a fully stocked kitchen with a gas stove, dishwasher and fridge. Because the Orlando’s are dog lovers, the space also includes a few hideaway dens for curling up and napping in, as well as a dog bowl that harvests rainwater. The main bedroom is located in a loft above the rest of the open air apartment and is accessed by an integrated ladder for optimal use of space. On top of this great living space is a rooftop deck and a solar array that helps power all of the appliances, keeping the place purring without the need for a traditional power source. Plans for this house are available for sale and can be customized your. Prices for the plans start at $255 and go as high as $340, but you’ll have to purchase the materials the separately.
