Handmade Idaho Sheep Wagons

“Kim Vader’s family began herding sheep in Idaho in the early 1900s. Eight years ago, his sister wanted a wagon to use as a guesthouse that would pay homage to their sheep ranching grandfather. Vader, having spent 3 decades as a craftsman, agreed to build her one with his wife Kathy.

Word of their build got around and today, they’ve built, or rebuilt, 50 wagons for modern shepherds and those looking for a more original second home. Each wagon is custom and takes them 3 months (with 3 people working) to complete. They often build for the descendants of sheep ranchers who are looking to recreate some of their family history. ” – Fair Companies

Tiny r(E)volution – Interview with Stacey Whitcomb

I remember running away from home when I was three in the middle of dinner, in the middle of winter in Montana. Dad was teasing me and I gave him a warning but he didn’t believe me. Down the stairs and out the front door I flew. I could hear my mom chewing his ear off as I slammed the door.” – Tiny r(E)volution

A Tiny House Story

A tiny house construction story captured in this video slideshow. The home is located in Idaho.

“We started our Tiny House project in the spring of 2010 in our shop building using a car trailer that we already had.  Mike welded a couple extra support beams on it then began building the deck and flooring.  Once that was completed, we moved the trailer with the side walls up to Council where it’s home is.”
