Imagine a tiny house tucked back in an acre of redwoods 400 feet down a winding trail. Dappled sunlight illuminates your private escape as the cares of this world fade. Built from a combination of salvaged old-growth redwood and upcycled materials, this is an unforgettable, unique hideaway. A surrounding deck, bank of windows, outdoor kitchen/bath, sleeping loft and propane stove for heat complete the package. Parking next door on our work-in-progress 1-acre permaculture farm! #redwoodtinyhouse

Le logement
One-hundred foot tall coastal redwood trees frame your walk through ferns, over bog bridges, alongside holly, redwood sorrel and evergreen huckleberry. As you arrive you'll see a structure built of the same wood gently take form amidst the greenery, emerging quietly in stately repose at the foot of a cathedral tree--a ring of redwoods. Through an opening in the forest the afternoon sun illuminates a deck and a bank of windows. Thoughtfully designed to make full use of 120 square feet, the comforts of home are here: a well-equipped kitchen, bathroom, couch, propane stove for heat and a super comfortable bed in the loft.

Built over five months in 2017-18, the tiny house design evolved over time, emanating from the unique space in which it is situated, a vision for the larger property, the recycled materials available, the abundance of salvaged old-growth redwood available from a local mill, and the talents of a sculpture graduate from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Some info about the tiny house:

Deck boards are salvaged old-growth redwood (trees down due to a natural death) from Pacific Redwoods mill 3 miles away. Windows are reclaimed from a remodel of Redwoods Nat'l Park Visitor Center in downtown Crescent City. Bottle window created by your host Hope. Exterior siding is reclaimed redwood fence boards from two local fences. Window table and pass-through window table are salvaged old-growth redwood slabs acquired locally.

The interior painted with environmentally responsible, sustainable and non-polluting Safecoat paint. The tiny house has a 12-volt solar power system, LED lights, RV-size water pump, and composting toilet. There is an on-demand, propane-fired water heater which pumps from 150 gallons of rainwater collected from the roof (and well water in the dry season).

The Property

One hope we have for the grove is to show our community, with its long history of forestry, that trees can be commercially valuable preserved in their natural state. You are helping us do that by staying in our woods!

Clearing blackberries, rehabilitating outbuildings, remodeling one of the two houses and developing the gardens, greenhouses and orchards occupied a majority of 2015-17.

As of 2019 more than 40 work-exchange helpers through WWOOF (World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) and HelpX have labored to help develop the property in exchange for room, board and a hands-on education.

We are working towards establishing an organic, bio-dynamic, self-sustaining permaculture farm that will supply up to 80% of our diet and result in excess food to sell or share. One goal is for the farm to be part of a more formal education program for serious interns looking to establish their own permaculture properties.

The property is also an overnight stopover for bicycle tourists traveling down highway 101, typically from Seattle or Vancouver to the Mexican border who find us through the website Warmshowers.


The Redwoods

This grove on our property was probably logged in the 1960s when much of northwest California was in a logging heyday. The big trees around you were passed over as too small then and are now about 105 years old. See if you can spot the notches on the old-growth stumps where loggers inserted buckboards to stand on while cutting.

Redwoods typically live 800 to 1000 years, but can be over 1500 years old.

98% of redwoods sprout not from seed, but from a stump, burl or branch on a downed tree. The new tree has the same DNA as the original... so perhaps 10,000 or 100,000 years is a more accurate number for redwood lifespan? See how many circles of stump-sprouted trees you can locate in the grove.

Redwoods have shallow roots, but they intertwine to hold each other up.

Redwoods make their own rain in summer because their upper needles are shaped to condense water from fog. Summer fog, moderate temperatures and abundant rainfall (75-100”/year) are necessary for their survival.

The largest coastal redwoods in the world are within ten miles of here. Check out Stout Grove and Grove of the Titans in Jedidiah Smith State Park.

Accès des voyageurs
The tiny house is yours. You will park on our property and walk a short ways through our farmstead before accessing the trail.

Autres remarques
Please keep in mind:

Check-in time is 10:00 PM. If you arrive after that, follow the Christmas lights to where the path through the redwoods begins.

If you are coming from San Francisco or Portland, we recommend leaving by noon. We are halfway between the two cities. It is about 350 miles, but there are very slow and winding sections of highways 101 & 199, so allow eight hours; more if you're sightseeing.

Cell phone coverage is spotty in our area, depending on your carrier. We recommend you write down our address (4711 Siskiyou Street, Crescent City CA) before your journey.

Farm fresh breakfast available for an additional charge upon your arrival.

A walk down the trail is easier with a backpack than with a suitcase. The only heat source is a tiny wood stove. (We're happy to build the first fire for you upon request.) The kitchen and bathroom are outdoors. There is a composting toilet. A camp stove, some cookware, dishes and silverware are provided.

There are farm animals (and hence farm noises) on the adjacent property.

The price includes a 10% transient occupancy tax by the county.

The cleaning fee covers only the cost of cleaning supplies.
