Ever wish you could rent out a tiny home so you could see how living in one actually feels like? Well now you can. The Tumbleweed Tiny House Company are currently building a new tiny house vacation village near Portland, Oregon, and the houses there will soon be available to rent.The village will consist of five homes and it will be located inside the Mt. Hood RV Park. This means that guests will also be able to use the park’s amenities, namely the swimming pool and spa, game room, as well as the hiking and biking trails.
The tiny homes that make up the village were built based on plans for Tumbleweed’s own offerings. They are all of different sizes, which range from 175 – 260 sq ft (16.2 – 24.15 sq m). The 175 sq ft Atticus can sleep three people, and features a bathroom with a shower, a kitchen, a bedroom on the ground floor and another in the loft. The Scarlett model is the largest at 260 sq ft and can sleep five people. It also has a bedroom on the ground floor, as well as two lofts that can both be used as sleeping areas. This home also has a fully equipped bathroom and kitchen. All the homes were built on trailers and the exterior siding is made of cedar.
They are currently still finishing up the interiors of the houses. Once done, they will be fully equipped with comforts such as a TV, heating, and Wi-Fi. The homes will be plugged into the grid, which will provide the necessary power.
The tiny house village is set to open on May 28, 2016. The rent for the smaller units will be $129 per night, and $139 for the larger ones. That’s pretty steep, but it still offers a great way to test out tiny house living before taking the plunge. It would be great if some of the homes were off-grid so people could also get a taste of sustainable living.
