Award-winning Tiny Home Builder Selected For Commitment to Sustainable, Innovative and Affordable Designs

Rice Lake, WI — October 27, 2020  – – ESCAPE Homes has partnered with retail giant,  IKEA®, to design and build a sustainable 187 square-foot tiny home on wheels as part of The  IKEA® Tiny Home Project.

ESCAPE was selected to design a custom ESCAPE Vista Boho XL, reflecting both company’s commitments to sustainability, affordability and innovation.

“It was a natural pairing,” says ESCAPE Homes founder, Dan Dobrowolski. “We feature many IKEA® products in our various tiny home designs around the country, as they mirror the renewable, reusable and recycled materials we incorporate into the actual structures.”

The IKEA® Tiny Home Project exterior features Shou Sugi Ban (the Japanese technique of charred siding) and is built on ESCAPE’s custom trailer that easily hooks up to a vehicle and can be transported anywhere.

Inside, the home is wrapped in ESCAPE’s signature sustainably grown pine and features Low-E, thermopane windows and energy-efficient lighting.

IKEA®’s design team selected a metal roof, solar paneling and an on demand RV water heater to provide the home with off-grid capabilities.

“Our entire mission with ESCAPE Homes is to provide consumers with ways to simplify their lives, reduce their carbon footprint and live in a beautiful home,” says Dobrowolski. “The IKEA® Tiny Home Project illustrates that is is possible to live sustainably and affordably with style.”
