Tiny houses have found homes as hotel rooms at Caravan Tiny House Hotel, which celebrated its grand opening in the Alberta Arts District, a neighborhood in northeast Portland, Oregon, on July 27, 2013.
Owners Deb Delman and Kol Peterson say that one of the goals of Caravan is to showcase the tiny home lifestyle. Three unique units (Rosebud, Pearl, and Tandem) share the common area outdoors that includes covered seating, a hammock, a barbecue, and a fire pit. In a hostel-like environment, visitors are encouraged to socialize.
Winning the 2013 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Housing Award in the One and Two Family Custom Housing category, Eagle Ridge is located on Orcas Island off the coast of Washington state. It was designed by Gary Gladwish Architecture to satisfy the client’s desire for high levels of energy efficiencies while accommodating accessibility concerns.
