About this listing
Welcome to the Tiny House Cabin on Holland St. This charming, custom-built tiny house is located in a private backyard of a shared house. It is completely self-contained with a full kitchen, toilet, and access to an outdoor shower.
Although its dimensions are tiny you'll be surprised by its spacious feel!
This custom-crafted tiny home has 10-foot ceilings and is complete with a dining space comfortable for 4, full kitchen, sitting area, closet with a toilet, and a loft bed with a huge skylight above.
(Access to the loft requires taking a 2-foot high step and may be difficult for individuals with physical limitations).
If you are considering building or purchasing a tiny house this is a great opportunity to experience one firsthand.
If you are not already familiar with the tiny house phenomenon the New Yorker and CNN both have excellent articles; there are a few tiny home documentaries as well.
The tiny house has a toilet tucked in the closet space and guests will have access to an enclosed outdoor shower (it is also shared by other tenants).
The tiny house has its own deck, but you're welcome to enjoy any corner of the yard, including the fire pit or front yard hammocks.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction with other tenants is up to you. Access to the tiny house takes you through the yard so you may interact with other tenants who are coming or going. Also, we have a huge, beautiful walnut tree full of hammocks-- a common summer hangout for everyone on the property. It is a great place to put out a blanket and interact with others, if you wish to do so.
The tiny house is located on a low-traffic street with friendly neighbors.
Some of Portland's best breweries, restaurants, parks, markets, and coffee shops are just a few blocks away in Dekum's Triangle or N. Williams. The Alberta Arts district and Mississippi St. are within a short bike ride too.
The house is an easy (25 minute) bike ride from downtown or 4 blocks from catching the #6 bus (which will take you directly downtown) or 8 blocks from the MAX yellow line. We also have two bikes you can use, if you'd like.
Freeway access is also convenient.
Other Things to Note
Please note there are a few unique factors to this property that might not work for everyone:
Access to the loft requires taking three large steps.
The shower is outdoors.
The toilet is in a 5 ft tall closet, underneath the loft.
The bed is a futon mattress. We like it, but some might find it too firm.
The yard is also shared with chickens.
The washer and dryer are in the main house.
This is our personal space that we hope you'll also respect and make yourself at home in.
Sorry, we cannot accommodate your pets.
