The Tiny House Builder’s Own Dream Home Boasts Elevator Bed and Penny Floor

Greg Parham, who owns Rocky Mountain Tiny Homes, has lived in several tiny homes with his wife Stephanie, and their two dogs. However, after several years, they decided it was time to create a custom house just for them – and the results will astound you.

This house features an eight-foot, four-inch vee-nose frame that ends up looking like a ship’s bow. The unique shape meant they had more space on their limited footprint – even if it did make putting on the metal roof and Aspen shiplap ceiling a little challenging.

The structure consists of corrugated iron and barn wood, with leftover cedar shakes also making an appearance throughout the exterior. Greg and Stephanie even painted the shakes in blue shades to represent a Colorado ever-changing horizon. It’s the small details that make this tiny house stand out.

It features a wood stove with a decorative metal grate that pumps out the heat. Adjacent is a fridge and freezer with a pull-out pantry for dry food.

In this area is a freestanding tub with floor-mounted faucet, a live-edge counter, and a brass-enameled vessel sink. There is even enough room for a linen closet, freshwater tank in the wall, and cubbies. The icing on the cake, however, is the floor laid in $80-worth of pennies coupled with a Chevron pattern glass tile backsplash.

The San Juan Tiny House is a prime example of what is possible with a bit of planning and passion.
