Interested in staying somewhere a little unique the next time you travel to Portland, Oregon? Caravan, the Tiny House Hotel, might be just what you need. Opened just last month, the hotel consists of a series of tiny houses pulled up around a central socializing and eating area, accommodating guests in spaces that are, well, smaller than some hotel rooms! But don't let their size fool you, because they pack quite a punch.
Tiny houses have caught on in recent years as people think more about the environmental impact of their homes. When you build small, your home is naturally more efficient; it has a literally smaller footprint but you also save money on the costs of running your home. In regions with sometimes hostile climates, temperature control becomes less expensive; Portland heating and cooling contractors, for example, can keep Caravan's units comfortable for a fraction of the cost of a more traditional hotel.
Everything you'd want in your home is there in a tiny home, just in miniature. That includes cooking facilities, a regular-sized bed, storage, seating areas, and more, depending on the configuration of the home. Some tiny homes are small enough to be hauled around on a trailer bed, as is the case with Caravan, where the units were brought onto an empty lot by truck. Others are larger and have actual foundations.
