Tongue & Groove Tiny Homes is a Bend, Oregon, company whose first tiny house, the Hiatus, is a 170-square-foot loft house built on a 20-foot trailer designed so that a porch can easily be added if it’s parked semi-permanently. The rough-sawn knotty blue pine siding under a sheet metal gable roof gives a nicely rustic look to the exterior. Inside, things are brighter and a bit more contemporary with bleached birch walls and windows everywhere (although the beautiful hardwood floor could have come straight out of a 19th century farmhouse).
When you enter through glass doors on the port side of the house the kitchen, bathroom and sleeping loft are to your left. To your right there’s a nice sitting area where you can look out through a large window in the stern. Cooking enthusiasts will love the kitchen, which features a generous amount of space on the eastern maple counters and an ergonomic layout with the sink on one side of the aisle and the stove on the other. Accessories include a Separett Villa 9200 waterless toilet, a Dickinson Marine Newport P9000 propane fireplace, a 40-gallon freshwater tank, and LED lighting. Tongue & Groove is pricing the Hiatus at $65,000 and up.
2017 update: Tongue & Groove is now planning a 22-unit village of foundation style tiny cottages near Bend.
