Driving northeast along Ohio Avenue it’s easy to miss the outlier. Sitting behind a madrona tree in an almost vacant lot, one of these homes is not like the others. It’s smaller. Much smaller.
It’s called a “tiny house,” and with good reason. At about 130 square feet, it’s no bigger than a Chevrolet Suburban.
It belongs to a woman named Melodie, who bought it about a year ago from Tumbleweed Tiny House Company.
In keeping with the “off the grid” spirit of her home, Melodie asked to keep her last name off the record.
