A Tiny House in Hopland

Camping in Southern Oregon


On our standard tri-yearly drive between Oregon and LA we finally stopped in the deliciously named Hopland to check out the Real Goods Solar Living Institute.
The Tiny House was obviously appealing – a micro home on a trailer built with recycled materials including a recycled solar panel desk. We liked the size, the feel of the wood, and the fact that it even had an indoor shower and composting toilet.


The shower and toilet were in a little cubby closet with a shower curtain separating them and just enough space for one person to stand. I want to incorporate something similar in our next house but with a bit more space in between.

    Love the tiny house! Duck eggs, yum. I had them in Ireland this spring. They don’t really taste any different from chicken eggs, but the yolks are HUGE! The yolks dwarf the white, which I love.

    I once saw an exhibit of a redwood that had been cut and converted into a tiny house (this was around 1968). I’d love to see the redwood forest and drive thru that tree, but really like the idea of the grow-thru car. Unique!
