Wee Irish Cottage

Mike and Christy Irish sent me these pictures of their recent project the “Wee Irish Cottage.” Here is what Mike has to say about the cottage.

The cottage is 18’x8′, built on a tandem axel trailer.  It has a sleeping loft, undercounter fridge, small bathroom with shower and composting toilet.  Shower is rudimentary; toilet is brand new.


The interior is finished in pine with bamboo flooring, therompane windows. The floor, walls and ceiling are well insulated.  4’x4′ opening Velux skylight makes for light filled interior. High ceiling (with ceiling fan) gives the cozy cottage a spacious feeling.

Included is a stainless marine wood stove that burns solid fuel (from pellets to pine cones). This little place epitomizes living large in a small space.

The Irish’s are selling their cottage for $14,000 and you can contact them via e-mail:  irish@gorge.net, or phone: 541-296-5225. The Wee Irish Cottage is located in The Dalles, Oregon. Be sure and tell them you heard about it through the Tiny House Blog.

  1. Nice looking trailer house. It looks like the spent a lot of time making it cozy and fitting their needs. At that price, I bet it goes fast.

    • Hi Frank, if you look behind the saw horse you will see two wheels. Click on the picture to see it larger, it makes them easier to see…Kent

      • Frank might mean to ask the same question I wanted to ask–where is it? How far will I have to transport it? By the area code I’d guess in Eugene, OR– which puts it a lot closer to me than many of the others I’ve seen posted for sale. Hmm…

        • Thank Kerrick, I misunderstood him I think. The trailer is in the The Dalles, Oregon. I’ll get that info above and thanks for pointing it out…Kent
