These are badass young inexperienced engineers.

These engineers never really had an experience in constructing their own house but they took the risk and built one from scratch. The tiny house is filled with interesting features such as pet-friendly designs, a cool storage space and technology which allows the house to be sustainable on its own wherever it goes. It even has a rooftop deck. Did we also mention this house is on wheels?

It’s located at Beaverton, Oregon and it took Luke and Tina Orlando a total of 18 months to design the tiny house with a floorspace of 19 square meters. Their design was based on their experiences in the fields of civil and mechanical engineering. While the Orlandos designed the house, tiny house firm Daystar Tiny Homes was hired to build it.

Complete with a living area that has an L-shaped couch (which can be converted into a guest bed), a kitchen and a bathroom, you’ll easily feel at home in this house. One important factor in designing this tiny house is its pet-friendly feature. It has a kennel space, water bowls, rainwater-harvesting dog waterer, hideaway dens and moving privacy gates. These features would make the all the dogs the Orlandos take care of feel comfortable in this tiny house. Once you reach the upstairs sleeping loft using its storage-integrated staircase, you can reach the rooftop deck using an outdoor staircase.

The design the Orlandos created is available in the website they created just in case people are interested to buy their plans. Aside from the one featured, there are other options available for anyone to choose from which includes more pet-friendly designs and off-grid packages.
