We're tiny home owners ourselves. Let our wealth of experience be your guide for your next tiny adventure. See more about our team below..

Tina

Owner & Principal

Tina, an Oregon transplant from Massachusetts, started Backcountry Tiny Homes with her husband and partner, Luke, after falling in love with the tiny house movement and the freedoms available to those who choose to go tiny. Not just a tiny home designer and builder, Tina used to live in the Basecamp + Green tiny home model with Luke and her four dogs. With a background in construction, civil, and environmental engineering, her experience with green technology inspires many of the off-grid designs you see at Backcountry Tiny Homes. Tina is your client contact person for everything you need at Backcountry Tiny Homes and she cannot wait to help you find the adventure that is just right for you! On any given weekend you will find Tina with Luke and her four dogs scaling high alpine ascents or volunteering as part of a therapy dog handler team with her Siberian Husky, Minnie. She dedicates her pet-friendly designs and furnishings in memory of her most cherished pet companion and adventure partner, Maya.

Luke

Owner & Principal

Luke was born in Switzerland and raised in Massachusetts and made the trek out to the beautiful Pacific Northwest four years ago with his wife and partner, Tina. Luke was drawn to the tiny house movement immediately because of his love for problem solving and project design. His experience with small spaces during his extended mountaineering treks helps him bring creative ideas to new tiny home designs and space saving storage solutions. Luke has an extensive background in mechanical and manufacturing engineering which has brought a new perspective to tiny home utility functionality and the construction process. From new material choices and better production quality, Luke is quick to find the best solution for your build. When he's not living it up building and designing new tiny homes, Luke is an avid hiker, rock climber, ice climber, and skier. Between his love for the outdoors and his family, Luke is never far away from the vast beauty of the backcountry without his partner, beloved dogs, and sense of adventure.

OUR PUP-PACK

Every team needs a little help. In our case, we have (4)! Cedar, Minnie, Whisper, and Sequoia are four very happy rescue pups that live with their best pals, Luke and Tina. Together, the "pup-pack" test-drive all of the pet-friendly storage and space solutions for tiny home designs. From rainwater harvesting water bowls to privacy dens, these pups love inspecting new project ideas and approving them before they make their official debut in any new design. It's hard work testing out new hide-away pet beds and treat dispensers but someone has to do it. Stop by our stop on any given day and you'll see Sequoia and Whisper retrieving tools to help our builders stay on task! Going tiny is an adventure that your pets should always have a say in.
