    I absolutely adore this tiny caboose ♥ My main change would be a raspberry red instead of the black simply because I love that combination of striking yellow and subtle cheery red. I think it would feel more intimate/homey and less industrial with that colour scheme. I do get why they chose black and it looks great. This would just be my own personal change ^_-

    I really enjoy seeing these projects. If you don't know me, I have to have a critical opinion so trigger warning. These places are not tiny houses, they are adult designed play houses for children. I'm 6'4". No way I'm staying for more than a single evening in one of these "houses" but don't get me wrong, I LOVE the creative designs. Very fun... as a play house... for children. This movement is really just a Peter Pan fantasy to escape cleaning larger spaces and not having to build the tree house in a tree. Again, love watching the design and creative problem solving. Too bad they are too small for the adult me to be comfortable.

    trailer parks regs. Oregon has to regulate folks to death, inappropriately.

    Love the sinks but I think I would reverse their location, the bigger one in the kitchen and the smaller one in the bath.

    Great, love it. I understand the cost is high due to labor and materials. Puts it into perspective. I remember about 15 years ago a friend of us bought a whole rail carriage in New Zealand and had it placed onto a 2 acre property near Orewa for under $6000 , I thought that was a lot at the time, ha,ha.. There is a great (original) train carriage motel in Ohakune NZ, stayed there, the kids loved it! Good luck to the Digs motel, wonderful idea!

    Love the caboose house. I would have love to see the caboose sitting on a section of track with ties rather than jacks.

    So beautifully done. Love it❤

  • Matthew Hurlbut - 1 month ago

    Adorable house! My only issue comes from being slightly claustrophobic and the narrow space you crawl through to get to the second floor would definitely be an issue.

    I think one of railroad nails is supposed to 68 not 86

    If you own your own land can't you have a tiny house? With a river type stream access? I prefers a colder climate like VERMONT?

  • Zane Neff - 2 months ago

    60+ Thousand for that? Seems extreme to me.. A DIYer could do that kind of build for a fraction of that.. Although I agree with the mindset of the tiny house movement, the more popular it gets, the higher the cost of it...Eventually they are gonna drive themselves out of business charging that much..

    Why does she keep saying "ray-roe"?.. She talks about it like someone who had no idea what it was her entire life and found out about the "ray-roe" and did her research to learn about it in the same way an old woman would learn about her grandchild's slang or something... "The ray-roe"
