John Griffin of Treehouse Colorado was looking for a winter project and had been intrigued by the Tiny Home movement for several years. (Update: Treehouse Colorado is no longer in business)
He has designed and built over 75 tree houses in the Boulder/Denver area so he decided to build a Tiny House on wheels in his back yard to offer for sale to a serious downsizer.
His goal was to use the highest quality materials, components and construction techniques and try to keep the cost below those of the larger companies selling Tiny Homes.
The result is a cozy 17 foot long and 16 foot high home that is now ready to roll out of John’s backyard.
