Introducing the Pearl tiny house. It’s one of three that are located at the Caravan as part of the Tiny House Hotel in Portland, Oregon.

This little home on wheels was designed and built by Shelter Wise LLC in Portland. It was completed in June 2013.

It’s other name is “The Miter Box” because of the precision of the project. This 90 square foot house features a dining table that converts into a queen bed, much like in many RVs.

In addition it offers two other lofts. And the bathroom is a wet bath.

    Little House on the Prairie Meets Scandinavian Design! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!!! Crisp, clean, 2013 vs. 1813…I could eat it up with a spoon. I’ve visited their site and gave them 5 stars for concept and what their goal is in creating their compound.

    “Pearls” can ALSO be a Girl’s Best Friend, along with diamonds.

    Magnifique dessin, belle réalisation dans tous les détails. Bon choix de photos aussi. Je remplacerais la dînette par un ensemble de sofa sectionnel: moins d’obstacles, plus d’espace, mieux adapté à la vie en roulotte aujourd’hui.

    FYI the Miter Box is actually 120 sqft, not sure why the Caravan has it at 90 sqft. This does not include the loft space, which is 24sqft (larger loft) and 16sqft (smaller storage loft).

    Oh my…I so love it! It is SOOO zen! I could live there too. I live in Portland, I really need to get over there and see this place.
    Thanks for sharing. Namaste

    I looked into the Caravan tiny house hotel, but $125/night is DEFINITELY not in my price range. Very disappointing.

    What kind of wood is appropriate for the wet bath?

    • jerryd September 29, 2013, 1:49 pm

      Most used are Redwood, Teak, cypress and some cedars.

      Not that thrilled with the layout as not good seating and climbing over the other getting into and out of bed.

      First item any TH is having good, comfortable seats, not flat benches, but well done soft comfortable one for each person living there.

      Only then design the rest. You’ll spend a lot of time there, so take the little time, money needed to do it right. An inch here and there plus some angles and curves so small yet make al the difference.

      And again the ‘door/porch’ takes space that could be better used for other things.

    I have to say the Pearl is the cleanest design I have ever seen and I have been following these posts daily for the better part of a year. It is beautifull. I wouldnt be able to live in it and do it justice because I am naturally just messy but props to th designer!Also I just adore the name choice!

    Its a modern interpretation of the traditional tiny house. However, as usual I dislike the loft and the wet bath both isn’t very practical for daily use. The sitting benches are providing storage but aren’t much comfy to sit on for long.

    I love the design and choice of materials and colors. I’m not sure you’re still keeping up with this page but I have a question on the bathroom. I love the wood tiles and the walls but is it sealed? As in, the moisture from a shower can’t find it’s way between the panels on the wall, underneath the tiles, etc??? I am about to embark on building my own tiny house and the bathroom is one of my biggest concerns as far as sealing for longevity. I don’t want to worry about mold in the walls etc.
    Overall, GREAT GREAT job on this house.

      Venting is a MUST! Install a 12v fan to exhaust the water vapors. Install hardee backer with kerdi you’re good for years’ of worry-free service.

    Cooking stove? Little refrigerator? Or is that a small refrig. under the counter? Heating for a Polar Vortex Maine winter? Needs comfy couch or relaxing chair – benches not comfortable. I do see most of (if not all) these Tiny Homes are on the West Coast. I’m certain there are many thousands of us on East Coast who would love to live in something like this, at a reasonable cost and built for the climate (no easy challenge!). Why not do an issue of your email on East Coast tiny homes and suppliers? Appreciate it. Thanks for your work.

      I agree. I live on Long Island New York and have been trying to find Tiny House builders closer to home. Also, property here is very expensive, and any and all advise will be appreciated. Thanks

    No longer at the Tiny House Hotel, currently For Sale in Portland Oregon. Go to Shelterwise.com to get all the details about the Miter Box. It was a hotel room (hence the lack of storage) and now can be easily made into full time living, we have many unique options for storage for the Miter Box. As you can see by the comments people have different ideas of what they want to store (we might talk you out of a vacuum storage though:)

      Our large extended family doesn’t lend itself to having something this wee but THIS Tiny House has always been beloved by me. Pity that it isn’t available for rental any longer but I’m sure that the people who DID manage to rent it really enjoyed it.

      I love the other name this house went by: The Pearl, as it truly is a ‘gem’.

    I could totally live there! But someone else would have to climb the ladder. The only drawback I see to tiny houses, is that I’ve yet to see one equipped for the handicapped. But I appreciate the ones with bedroom AND bath on the same, lower floor.
