"Oliver the Tiny House" is big on amenities and ideas ... The tiny house pictured above was created by local newlyweds Logan and Mariah Fogt of Waukon, with Logan Fogt constructing the residence during a four-month period this past late summer and early fall for the purpose of the couple taking the home on the road. As evident in the photos below, the home has a number of amenities any homeowner would need, including lofted sleeping quarters (evident in the photo below), a living room area with a couch/storage area built into the home (evident in the lower photo below), and a full kitchen that includes some drop-down storage area for cooking and other kitchen necessities that the couple is demonstrating in the bottom photo at immediate right. Also evident in the photo below are barn boards used in the home's ceiling and window and other trim that were donated to the project by Gordon and Louise Ellingson of Waukon. Photos by Joe Moses.
