Tiny Green Cabins delivers a Tiny House to Western North Dakota
White Bear Lake, MN-November 1, 2011 - Tiny Green Cabins provides a solution to the western North Dakota housing crisis – one tiny house at a time.
Living in a smaller, sustainable, healthy home is becoming the choice of many: young singles find an easily affordable home, young professionals on the move or retirees wanting to downsize have less up-keep, and the appeal of creating a custom portable space is also attractive to those who travel frequently, as well as to the avid sportsman or outdoorsman.
Tiny Green Cabins is excited about shipping its latest healthy tiny house creation – The Wildflower II – to a western North Dakota school teacher. She has fulfilled one of her age old dreams: to have a tiny house built to her exact specifications, one that she can take with her wherever life takes her.
The Wildflower II is a tiny house with a main floor that measures 176 square feet, and a loft of an additional 120 square feet. This is a house built to be transportable with added features to make it a year round residence, such as custom trailer foundation by Fellings, welded steel framed structure, insulated floor, walls, and ceiling, metal roofing and siding, in-floor electric heat with back-up propane fireplace, incinerator toilet, custom stairs to loft with built in storage, reserve water storage, grey water storage, ash paneling throughout the home sealed with hand rubbed Tung oil, just-in-time hot water system, LG washer and dryer, kitchenette, small front porch, Marvin Integrity Ultrex windows, smoke and CO/Propane alarms, and a barrel vault roof /ceiling at lofted area.
Western North Dakota is in an interesting predicament with the oil boom of 35,000 workers in less than a year, and an unemployment rate of just 2%. These workers have moved into “man camps,” motels with campers in parking lots, college dorms, and anyplace else that will have them. Housing is at a premium, and with predictions of another 200,000 workers moving in, finding housing is a practical impossibility – where do you put all these people in the Badlands with winter fast approaching?
After careful deliberation, the new owner turned to Tiny Green Cabins for a solution to her very own housing crisis. The delivery of her tiny house this week will assure her of a healthy place to live and call home in western North Dakota, or wherever life takes her.
