This 200 sq. ft. modern and rustic tiny house on wheels by Tiny House Northwest is for sale in Portland, Oregon.
It was built using as many reclaimed materials as possible along with low VOC finishes inside to keep it safe to be in.
The flooring is securely bolted to the trailer which you can learn how to do yourself with these videos.
The slanted roof keeps is spacious and simple in the upstairs sleeping loft so there’s no need for dormers which increase the chances for leaks later on because of the extra cuts and corners.
The exterior sheathing is secured by being screwed and glued to the framing.

The total length of the trailer that it sits on is 30′ and is made of reinforced steel so you know its strong and durable.
New axles were installed with 12,000 lb. of total weight capacity.
Exterior Dimensions, Info, Etc.
The structure’s dimensions are 8′ wide by 24′ long and 13.5′ tall which means that you can tow this tiny house on most public roads legally and you won’t need an oversized load permit to do so.
The siding you see above is cedar. Some parts of it are new and others are reclaimed. The porch and awning are detachable and add 40 sq. ft. of exterior space you can use. Of course you must remove these before towing.
Built in Storage Cabinets
What you see above the french doors there are actually overhead cabinets with about 40 cubic feet of storage inside.
Living Area, Kitchen and Loft
The french doors really help to bring in light and open up the tiny house to the outdoors wherever you might park it and live in it. The ceiling is made of cedar plank is about 9’6″ high. The flooring is reclaimed fir.
I love the oversized windows in the living area below, check it out…
The kitchen has a four-burner gas range and oven, an electric mini refrigerator with freezer and butcher block countertops.
There’s plenty of storage in the cabinets, drawers and shelves for your cooking needs. There’s also an instant propane water heater installed.
Oversized windows Let Lots of Light In
Bathroom with Shower
It’s always challenging to get good pictures of the bathrooms of these tiny homes so I hope you can bare with us there. You can see there’s corrugated steel paneling in there with cedar trim, a little window, electric fan for ventilation and the builder actually left the toilet out so you can make that decision yourself. There’s also built in shelving in there that we can’t see.
Well, let’s head up to the sleeping loft…
It’s an 8′ by 8′ platform so you can actually fit a king bed if you wanted to although I’d probably go with a queen. What I like most is that there are built in drawers up there you can see them to the right in the photo above. On the highest side of the slanted ceiling there’s 4′ of headroom. And there’s also a big window up there that opens which is nice.

Asking $49,000 and they will install any type of toilet system you prefer if you’re interested. They only build in summer months so this is all they have to offer before next September.
