Rich’s Portable Cabins has been making tiny homes for nearly 20 years. It all started when timber specialist Rich Daniels saw that the industry was in trouble. He snapped up some woodland in northeastern Oregon as well as a sawmill and set up shop, figuring he could live off the land by selling the sheds he made.
After five years, a chance conversation gave him an idea: expand the business and make tiny homes and portable cabins. Building sheds had done wonders for his design and construction skills. As he started building more complex structures, he became a true expert.
The company describes itself as “part of a movement that promotes small home living concepts, and movement towards low impact installations of small portable cabins. The many uses include 8′ wide Texas hunting lease cabins, boom shelters, RV park living, tiny home living, hardship quarters, to name a few.
Through innovation and creativity, RPC strives to provide mobile homes and cabins that merge proven concepts with new paradigms. We are currently developing partnerships with communities and individuals in select locations throughout the nation.”
As you’ll see in the video posted below, a portable home can actually be surprisingly nice. The Loft Park model has about 600 square feet of floor space, 350 on the main floor and 250 up in the loft. In addition, the house has a covered porch. There’s much that can be customized, but this home has a living room with a wood-burning fireplace, a fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom on the main level, and an open loft upstairs.
There’s storage space hidden all over. It’s nicely designed and made from quality materials. Does this make you want to retreat to a cozy little cabin in the woods? Or do you have a piece of land that needs a building?
