The 2018 American Institute of Architects’ annual convention, known as AIA, was a whirlwind of activity and inspiration. From day one, attendees visiting the Javits Center for the AIA expo explored the theme “Blueprint for Better Cities, ” which included interactive exhibits, tours, seminars, and workshops all about making a difference in major cities throughout the world.
The House Tipster Media Team was excited to be immersed in the world of design and architecture at AIA. Besides attending various keynote speaker and educational sessions, we found ourselves exploring the installations on the main showroom floor. Naturally, there were a handful of exhibitions and companies that stood out from the crowd, including Tiny House Northeast.
This regional values-driven company, located in Wakefield, New Hampshire, presented a modern and highly versatile tiny house at the event that truly fascinated us. To learn more about the company and their product offerings, we spoke with Isa Bauer, project manager and lead designer at Tiny House Northeast.
According to Isa, the company builds custom-designed tiny houses, workspaces, and other transportable buildings for homeowners and business owners throughout New England. Their focus is on providing high-quality living and working environments catered to those who value conservation. The buildings, which Tiny House Northeast calls “Weelhouses,” are handcrafted with eco-friendly materials and custom built to order.
Concerning pricing, Isa admits that the range is considerable and is determined by many factors, including “architectural detail, material choices, and size.” She noted that the trailers alone are thousands of dollars because they’re built specifically to bear the weight of stick-built construction. But if you strive to live, work, and play with conservation and the environment, in mind, there’s no better option.
If you’re in the market for a tiny house or eco-friendly, transportable office space, and you live in the northeast, Tiny House Northeast is definitely worth a look.
