This Oregon-based company is capitalizing on the “tiny homes” movement in a big way—and their mobile rustic creations are not only adorable, they’re also pretty affordable too.

Tiny Mountain Houses has been making chic tiny homes (most are under $60,000) in the Pacific Northwest for nearly four years now. Not only are their home designs completely functional, the best part is, they’re built to trailer code—which means you can take along your tiny home as you live out your dream of a cross-country road trip.

These tiny home designs range from rustic cabin style to contemporary craftsman models, 95% of which are custom built, can be shipped anywhere in the U.S.A or Canada via partner uShip, and all are constructed using green building practices. So if you’ve been fantasizing about a personal, private retreat space somewhere in the fifty states, these perfect tiny homes may be the answer.

Here are five uniquely crafted Tiny Mountain Houses that we love:

Sierra Nevada
This 278 square foot (25.8m²) “long” tiny home includes a full-sized galley kitchen, a walled off media/flex room space that can function as a small living area or office, and two loft areas. The Sierra Nevada model sleeps between four to six people and goes for under $54k.

Lincoln Peak
The Lincoln Peak is Tiny Mountain Houses’ latest model, and features a barrel roof design, custom pendant style porch lighting, and a board and batten exterior with cedar accents. In just under 210 ft.² (19.5m), the designers managed to fit in a 7 ft. 8 in. sleeping loft, a full bathroom, a kitchen with a two burner black glass cook top, and butcher block floating table. It’s a little bit of luxury for under $50k.

Mt. Everest
Mt. Everest is a 255 ft.² (23.6m²) rustic cabin style home that goes for just under $53k. The amazing part is that it can actually accommodate four people. Highlights include a miniature porch, two lofts, a shower and toilet, and a modern kitchen area.

Grand Teton
The Grand Teton is bit a pricer than the other designs, but it’s one of Tiny Mountain Houses’ largest models. The 355 ft.² (32.9m²) tiny home features an open living area, a functional galley kitchen, two spacious sleeping lofts, cabinets, storage space, and more. The Grand Teton is more “residential sized,” and is perfect for longer getaways out in the Great American countryside.

Castle Peak
Castle Peak is a beautifully modern 314 ft.² (29.1m²) tiny home that sleeps between four to eight people. According to the owners, it’s one of their bestsellers because of its flexibility and ample storage space, and the model includes two loft areas, a den/media area, and a signature full-sized bathroom.
