History of Salsa Box

It was completed in April 2014. Originally, it was built as an instructional model to give workshop students a clear look at each of the steps involved in building a Tiny Home.  It also includes a cute little Living Roof over the porch.  Built by Shelter Wise, a small Portland based Dwelling Services company that specializes in Tiny Homes, ADU’s and energy efficient structures.​
