In case you didn’t notice, tiny houses are cool. They make terrific starter homes, or an instant backcountry cabin “camping shelter.” Case in point: the tiny we helped with last week, bought in western Colorado and installed high in the mountains as a backcountry basecamp. The day was epic. I got to use every heavy rigging item in my arsenal. The Warn 12,000 lb winch completed the install by dragging the house sideways into perfect position. Silverado HD Duramax towed it on the highway and up 8 miles of rough backcountry dirt. The story in photos.
Twelve hours of driving, winching, wrenching and jacking got it done. Fun day for WildSnow and friends. Congratulations to them for their new camping shelter.
