Ark House Is Currently Available For Sale

The Ark was created in March 2015, by Zyl Vardos, in Olympia, WA, USA. It is known worldwide for its unusual sculpted cedar exterior, flowing architectural lines, and astounding full-length arched windows.


The Ark is designed to be a comfortable living space for one or two people. It would also shine as an attention-getting, devastatingly unique vacation rental. It is energy efficient, built of natural materials, and easily convertible to off-grid use.

The reason for the sale is this: The owner of the Ark is a small business owner who lives right in the heart of Portland, OR. A recent change of family situation made selling the Ark necessary. This house is in excellent shape, and has been well maintained.

I love your creativity and use of shelving as ladders. I am building a 12×16′ cottage on my property in Healdsburg. Should you find yourself in he area, i would feel grateful and honored for u to come stay here and give me some advice! I will be working on it this summer. Currently i just finished he foundation and put in floor joists. I am working on the plumbing now. Will be framing and roofing shortly. Will spend the summer finishing the interior.
