I am a dealer of Tiny Portable Cedar Cabins and I will be having open houses and showing a model on my  property by late December 2014.

I represent Dave Bates, the builder of Portable Cedar Cabins, built in Spirit Lake, Idaho. The cabins are inspected and certified  like an RV. The great advantage you will receive is having the quality and longevity of a log home.

Models Of Tiny Portable Cedar Cabins

We have many affordable models to choose from that range from 144 to 400 sq feet built on a superior custom steel frames. The cabins have pine interior and a rich cedar exterior.

Hearthouse Tiny House Community

I have 2 acres in rural, central Wa. The tiny town is 2 hours from Spokane and 40 minutes from Moses Lake. We are 15 minutes from Odessa, a small town of 900 people and it has a hospital. My desire for a community is for each of us to have our own sovereign unit where we can all have our privacy and cherished alone time and come together as supporting friends. I have a brand new Tiny House available now, 1 spot for someone who has their own Tiny House and needs parking, starting in May. I will also consider bartering with the person who wants the parking spot for someone who loves to make beautiful gardens. I can barter for 6 months., especially if you can grow beautiful food.

I am desiring to find others who want to make a stand with me and be the change we want the world to be.  No GMO seeds or poison are allowed and you must use biodegradable products. We have a greenhouse and are doing Aquaponics.

Dreaming Of A Caretaker For My Land

I am on the look out for a caretaker  for my land. It can be 1 person and I will consider couples. I am building a brand new cabin for you. It is called The Caretaker’s Cabin. I am especially looking for someone who wants to put down roots and wants to be a part of a community. You must have skills in landscaping, some mechanical and building skills to make tiny house furniture. Please read all my posts on The Caretakers’s Cabin to get an idea of the skills I desire and what I am hoping for as a person. We love, love dogs.

I look forward to helping you build the cabin of your greatest imagination and to meet others that love tiny houses and  want to join my community.
