From the outside, this 204-square feet tiny house (383 including the lofts and the roof), produced by a pair of Massachusetts ex-patriots (who moved to Oregon), may not look like your typical tiny home. Describing themselves as both engineers and mountaineers, Luke and Tina’s creation is eclectic, purposeful and stylish.
Engineers — in this case, the proprietors of Backcountry Tiny Homes — are very practical folks. As such, the primary tiny house rule that this couple ignored is the one that says a tiny house is not a miniature mansion. You can’t stuff it to the gills with every item you used to own when you lived in a 1,600 square feet home. You have to make sacrifices.
