Sauvie Island Tiny House

Standard

Love.

The Reclamation Administration

Jessica Helgerson and Yianni Doulis purchased this gem of a tiny house back in 2008 with the intent of living in it full-time with their two small children. The tiny house sits on a five-acres of land on Sauvie Island which is about 15 minutes north of Portland.

The house was remodeled with reclaimed materials and now serves it’s fourth role since it was built in the early 1940′s. The homes original use was to house shipyard workers that worked in the local area. When the area flooded in 1948 the house was floated down river to Sauvie Island where it became a goose-neck station. After that it became a rental house and now a tiny house for four.

Jessica and Yianni’s small home only has a footprint of 540 square feet and has a green roof for added insulation.
