While on vacation Royal saw this little house in St Anthony, Idaho and shared it with me.
Wendell Greenalgh is the builder and owner. He said that a number of years back he had been part of a crew constructing a new home on a site in Colorado. There was already an existing home on the site that needed to be removed. Wendell stated that he was able to recover enough lumber from the older home to construct this small house.
The house is 16′ x 16′. The top floor is a bedroom and bathroom. The ground floor is is the kitchen and living room. He was trained in stone masonry and concrete work so he also built a basement under the house. There is a balcony and deck off the 2nd floor level. He said that grandkids like to sleep on the deck or on the grassy lawn. The house is sited adjacent to a canal, so they can stand in the yard and go fishing.
Wendell stated that the bicycle is his exercise program. On the day of the photos, Wendell was replacing some cedar shakes on the home. He and his wife absolutely enjoy living in their tiny home.
