I know we’ve been posting a lot about the Tiny House Hotel lately.

But Faircompanies has released interviews and video tours of the tiny houses on the property.

I’m so inspired how someone found a way to turn what used to be a repossessed car lot into a Tiny House Hotel called The Caravan.

From Repossessed Car Lot to a Tiny House Hotel


I encourage you to watch the video below to hear how it was done! Including how zoning was passed and how the tiny homes on wheels got there.

You might have already learned about the Tiny House Hotel in Laura’s recent post.

I’ve even featured a few of their tiny houses recently including the Miter Box.

The best part is that you (and anyone else) can stay in these awesome little homes.

Almost two years ago I blogged about giant sewage tubes being turned into a tiny house hotel in Mexico.

Today, so far, we’ve got three stick built tiny houses on trailers in Portland, Oregon as the country’s first official “Tiny House Hotel.”

And I’ll bet there’s more in the works. But anyways, let me introduce you to the owners and creators of this magnificent place.

This is the Miter Box Tiny House on Wheels. It’s designed by Shelter Wise LLC in Portland. And for a while, back in 2013, it was part of the Tiny House Hotel in Portland, Oregon.

You can still buy the tiny house plans from PAD Tiny Houses (they’re currently selling for $79.00) and you can use those plans to build your own version of the Miter Box or you can hire a contractor to do it for you (using the plans).

This tiny house was completed in June 2013. Its nickname 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.

Update: Elaine’s Tumbleweed tiny house is no longer available for rent at the moment but you can still enjoy this original article I published on August 22, 2011 below:

A few years ago Elaine Walker discovered and fell in love with the Lusby design by Jay Shafer of Tumbleweed Tiny Houses.

So she put her big house on the market and began building the Lusby.

After jumping through a few hoops she ended up figuring out a way to make it work since her big home wasn’t selling.

She sold her lake front land, rented out her big house and moved to California with her Lusby house.

Today, she has already sold her big house and moved closer to San Francisco.

Elaine now has a 96-year-old two bedroom house with the tiny house on a trailer in the backyard.

So now you can book some time in one of the world’s tiniest hotels, her little Lusby. 🙂
