The name for this 105 square foot house fits perfectly. The tiny structure would be at home in any rustic, mountain landscape and its distinctive mansard roof is different from many tiny homes. This little, mobile house is the newest edition to the Spice Box Homes repertoire and will be available for sale June 2015.
Spice Box Homes started building tiny homes in 2010 and specialize in reclaimed materials and energy efficient buildings. The Mountain Mansard on display in Dolores, Colo. was set up as finished project in about an hour. About 75 percent of the home was built from reclaimed materials from local sources including old barns. It has a unique, removable 40 square foot panelized addition that can be used for sleeping and storage.
The Mountain Mansard was built by Spice Box Homes owner Chris Curry. He included timbers from local sawmills, metal siding, wood flooring, a kitchen made of reclaimed materials and a rocket mass heater. The Tiny House Blog featured Spice Box Homes and their building vision in 2013.
