Oregon Public Broadcasting’s radio series “Think Out Loud” began a new show about how and where people choose to live across the Northwest, and the unique places that people call home. They began with tiny houses, and specifically with the home and lives of PAD’s pals Tammy and Logan, who had Dee design their tiny home.
“Among people in this world, tiny homes are normally less than 200 square feet and are on wheels. They generally cost less than $30,000 and you can’t get a traditional mortgage to buy one. Tammy Strobel and her partner Logan Smith live in a tiny home.
Their house is 128 square feet and was built on an sixteen by eight foot trailer. It has a stove that uses alcohol as fuel, a free-standing electric-oil heater, and a simple plumbing set-up. They share wireless internet with the land owners. They don’t have a refrigerator or a shower.
Strobel says there are ten main benefits to living tiny (number one: “exiting the consumer lifestyle”; number seven: “less cleaning”).”
