Outdoor Enthusiast’s Salvage-Built DIY Tiny House

Meet Adam, an outdoor adventure enthusiast and DIY tiny house builder in the Wyoming mountains.

He crafted his home and parking set-up to act as a functional adventure basecamp to suit his active lifestyle.

I used board and batten as my exterior siding because it reflects a lot of the architecture from buildings around this area. It has a beautiful rustic look to it, and it’s a simple, no-fail design.

It’s easy to put up, easy to maintain, but aesthetically pleasing.

-Adam Gloss on his DIY tiny home

Adam built a 20′ x 8.5′ x 13.5′ tiny house on wheels, built from a wide variety of salvaged and reclaimed materials, like locally-harvested wood and pallets.

He created generous gear storage, to meet all his needs as an avid backcountry skier, camper, and rock climber. Adam’s passions inspired creative features, like his climbing wall as loft access.

Though some adventure tools and toys are too bulky for a tiny house. To accommodate things, like his motorcycle and mountain bike, Adam uses a simple, open shed near his tiny house. Also, he has a second shelter to provide ample dry storage for extra firewood.

This all with the permission of the primary landowner. Adam rents unpermitted space, tucked away on the back of the property. In Teton County, home to touristy Jacksonville, property prices and rentals are exorbitantly expensive.

Ultimately, through resourcefulness and networking, Adam achieved his goal of a low-cost tiny home, perfectly suited for his active lifestyle. 

He created an ideal, modest adventure base for mountain living, in his current parking spot or elsewhere. That it is to say, it’s travel-ready, if the need or desire arises.

So for Adam, home is where you park it, as long as it comes with easy access to the great outdoors.
