His Rustic Silo Cabin in the Woods of Oregon


Joe lives full-time in his box truck conversion, but he and a business partner recently acquired this gorgeous tiny house property in central Oregon. Built by the original owners, this little piece of paradise features a converted grain silo with a bedroom/bathroom addition and even a front porch.

Inside the silo itself are two turquoise chairs, a coffee table, and a curved kitchenette for preparing basic meals. The beams inside the silo are reclaimed electric poles! There’s a lovely queen bed and a bathroom with a flushing toilet and spacious shower stall. What do you think?

    I love these re-purposed silo cabins and homes. I see old ones on farms around here and expect they are mostly empty. The inside looks great and having a bathroom and bedroom off to the side makes sense. The deck is also nice.

    They aren’t called silos, they are called grain bins. Silos store silage. Just a clarification.

      True, but it’s just something most people don’t make a distinction on. Mind, neither would be used for their original purpose when converted into a home and most people don’t know what they were used for originally. So it becomes a slang generic term for being basically any round/cylindrical structure, regardless of the specific type it actually is…

        Well heaven forbid that they would learn the correct terminology. Most country people know the difference between a silo and a grain bin and I suspect that if a person bought one they would know what the original purpose was for too.

          That isn’t always the case and you can watch the video to see the context here, as he clearly states it was newly acquired property and calls it a silo repeatedly… If you look on AirBNB, etc. you’d find many of these are being called silos.

          While it may seem unlikely, in actuality, there are many words that people don’t often use correctly or can have different meanings in different context, which is often how slang or new meaning of words are created.

          Mind, “Silo” in its present meaning is only recorded in English from the 19th Century but prior to that it has been used to mean an underground food store in Spanish since the 11th Century. Though, a “silo” was not always used for food – some medieval Spanish writers used it to mean “a dungeon”. While from the mid-20th century cold war era it also referred to an underground missile silo. Among other examples of different meanings or usage, like silo syndrome means “people across the organization do not share common goals…” for example, which uses the vertical aspect of a silo as an analogy for a completely different meaning.
