Big dreams surround Esk’et Tiny House
When a home is 280 square feet every inch counts, says Robert Johnson as he stands inside the tiny house he is building for his parents at Esk’etemc (Alkali Lake) First Nation, 45 minutes west of Williams Lake.
“Outside it looks tiny, but the idea is to make it feel spacious inside,” he smiles as he nods toward the curved rafters, two lofts and round windows.
Inside the bathroom, he pulls out a hidden shelf behind the shower for storing supplies and in the kitchen area shows where he’s extended the counter slightly to allow for an eating area.
Robert is a journeyman carpenter.
This is the first tiny house he has built.
