We’re thrilled to welcome the first tiny house to Big Calm!
Last month, a 25-foot Jaunt tiny house on wheels (THoW), a first-of-its-kind model by pro builder ZeroSquared of Calgary. And it sure does look pretty in its perch between the maple and cedars, opposite the garden!
Move-in called for some muscle and finesse. Access to this particular spot, just outside of the rental community area under construction, required traversing a soggy lawn, a hairpin sloped corner, and a nudge up next to the old homesteader cabin. A rig with highway slicks hauled it to site, a local tow truck rounded the corner, and a mini-excavator inched it the last metre or so.
This tiny house will be operated as a guest-stay bookable on Airbnb. Called The Pocket Getaway, its owner John has lovingly set it up to be an incredible remote escape with all the modern conveniences: a comfy queen bed, sofa, full fridge, gas range, microwave, desk, wifi, a surprisingly spacious bathroom, and lots of windows.
