Last year we had a great time meeting folks at the Puyallup RV show, so we’re going again this year. We’ll be there May 2 – 5, 2013 at the Puyallup Fairgrounds.
We hope you stop by, chat for a while, and take the opportunity to tour our Ballard model. You’ll see firsthand how a tiny home is a great option for an aging family member, a vacation home, or even a full-time dwelling. It’s amazing what you can fit into 174 square feet of space!
This year, we’re pleased to offer financing for our homes through Washington State Employees Credit Union – making a tiny home more accessible than ever.
Here are the details about the show:
May 2 – 5, 2013
Thursday & Friday: 11am – 8pm
Saturday: 10am – 8pm
Sunday: 10am – 5pm
Puyallup Fair & Events Center
110 9th Ave SW
Puyallup, WA 98371

Seattle Tiny Homes is excited to announce our newest model: the Wallingford.
With a design patterned after some of the gracious dwellings in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle, this home features beautiful dormer windows that extend nearly the entire length of the roof on both sides.
The net result is a large loft area filled with natural light, creating an amazingly open and attractive space for sleeping, reading, or simply for storage.
Like every Seattle Tiny Home, the Wallingford is fully customizable to meet your specific needs. For example, you could have two separate lofts, giving you a vaulted ceiling above the great room. Or, you could have one large loft running the entire length of the home, giving you even more space upstairs.
Options also include a washer/dryer, shower or bathtub, full or partial kitchen, and your choice of colors, finishes, and amenities.
For customers needing even more space, we can craft the Wallingford as a 10-foot wide model. 10-foot wide models need a temporary $30 “wide load” permit to travel down the highways in Washington state.
Of course, the Wallingford features all the traits that have made Seattle Tiny Homes so popular: efficient use of space, beautiful craftsmanship, and quality contruction. For more information about the Wallingford, contact Sharon Read at (425) 445-3675.
If you’re curious about tiny home living, there’s no better way to learn more than to tour one in person!
You can do that starting this week (February 7-10) when Seattle Tiny Homes’ Ballard model will be parked outside the Occidental Street entrance of Century Link Field. Because we’re outside the main show area, you don’t even have to pay to visit us!
Here are the details:
February 7-10, 2013
11 am – 8 pm Thursday & Friday
10 am – 8 pm Saturday
10 am – 5 pm Sunday

Come learn why more and more people are turning to tiny homes for vacation homes, extra space for in-laws or guests, or even as a fulltime residence. We hope to see you there!
Fanny always thought she wanted to live in a fancy tree house in her daughter’s backyard after she retired. That was until she toured a Seattle Tiny Home.
Being a professional artist, Fanny knows beauty when she sees it. After experiencing a Seattle Tiny Home and talking with founder Sharon Read, Fanny realized she would rather live out her dream in a different way. She would live in her daughter’s backyard up on a little hill in a tiny, comfortable home that was more versatile and useful in many ways than her own current home. And she could move her home around the country and live in other children’s backyards if she wanted to take turns.
Fanny took delivery of her dream home on Christmas Eve 2012. “I love to sit here and admire all the details in this house,” says Fanny. “I feel like I’m living in a piece of art. And I like knowing I will be able to live in this beautiful home the rest of my life – yet I’m not restricted to this one place.”
Thank you, Fanny, for giving Seattle Tiny Homes the opportunity to help you fulfill your dream!
Seattle Tiny Homes’ lead contractor, Ben Klassen, is known for being cutting edge. While attending a recent national building convention (where he took first place among all the contractors in a final test for certification), Ben learned about HydroGap, a state-of-the-art house wrap. Because mold and moisture can cause significant problems in tiny spaces that are not built properly, Seattle Tiny Homes is vigilant to intelligently construct a problem-free product that will last a lifetime.
The benefit of HydroGap is that it has built in spacers, with a gap of 1 millimeter, for water to flow freely away from the house. The house wrap provides superior protection against mold and moisture damage. And it’s an ideal combination of strength, water-holdout, and vapor permeability.
Innnovative products like HydroGap, combined with old-fashioned, high-quality construction, ensure that every Seattle Tiny Home will provide a lifetime of comfortable use.

This weekend, listen in as Pete and Rob of Kiro 97.3’s Home Matters talk with Sharon Read about the tiny home movement and the benefits of tiny living. Sharon talks about how you design a tiny home in square inches (not square feet) . . . how a tiny home can help you achieve a simple, debt-free lifestyle . . . how you can use a tiny home for an aging relative, an office or studio, or even a man-cave . . . and how you can bypass expensive building permits to live in the home of your dreams.
To learn more, tune in Saturday, October 6 at 8:00 am and Sunday, October 7 at 6:00am on KIRO 97.3. You can also listen to a live stream at http://mynorthwest.com under radio.
Tiny homes made headlines in this week’s Sunday edition of the Kitsap Sun, a newspaper serving the Kitsap Peninsula in western Washington. Reporter Amy Phan did a great job interviewing Seattle Tiny Homes founder Sharon Read and telling more about the tiny home movement.
Thank you, Amy and the Kitsap Sun, for a great article and for spreading the word about the tiny house movement!
On June 23, a local Seattle man will be locked inside a Seattle Tiny Home parked at Westlake Center Plaza in downtown Seattle. He’ll be released when a lucky person figures out all the clues and is able to unlock him – winning the $5,000 locked inside the house with him! It’s all part of a fun promotion for Schlage Door Locks, and we’re excited to play a supporting role.
For more information about the event and how to find the clues, visit http://keytostrong.com/. You can also follow Joshua – the man locked inside our house – on Twitter, @LockedinaHouse. Who knows – you might get lucky and win the prize!
