*There is no listed price for this custom built tiny house. You must contact the builder.
The Esk’et tiny house has a total square footage of 280 sqft, including 2 lofts. The plans, available here, suggest building on a 24ft trailer. (Our first build is 20ft). The height and width are within legal road restrictions (8’6″wide, 13’6″high), so it can be hooked up to a truck and moved, without the need for wide load permits. The weight is under 10’000 lbs.
The tiny house has a wood exterior that fits perfectly into its natural surroundings. The siding is beautiful local pine, treated using a Shou Sugi Ban method. (a Japanese technique of preserving wood) The carvings in the custom door and the salmon along the roofline stand out as beautiful, artistic features.
