Rook Tiny House

The tiny house trend is officially here to stay. Tiny houses are relatively easy to build and move from place to place, and many people are rejecting more spacious dwellings in favor of pared-down, efficient homes. "Wind River Tiny Homes” are unlike any tiny houses you´ve ever seen before, they´re luxury homes, completely customized to suit the owner. The perfect example of their work is "The Rook", a very high end custom home that is 22 ft long with a 2 ft bump out, and packed with industrial details like an exposed brick veneer wall, floating rebar steps, and raw steel accents. The compact house on wheels is covered with vertical siding and exposed stainless steel screws and features two lofts, a convertible office and living space, a kitchen, and a bathroom. It is also packed with clever solutions, like a fold-down desk, built-in shelving, and swivel stools that can be tucked away when not in use.
