In a release distributed by Escape Homes, company founder Dan Dobrowolski said that this “was a natural pairing." 

"We feature many Ikea products in our various tiny home designs around the country," Dobrowolski said, "as they mirror the renewable, reusable and recycled materials we incorporate into the actual structures."

The Tiny Home Project has a unique exterior reflecting Shou Sugi Ban, a Japanese charred siding technique. It sits on Escape’s custom trailer and can easily be transported wherever you want to go.

The structure itself is encased in Escape’s sustainably grown pine. It also features energy-efficient light and thermopane windows.

"The Ikea Tiny Home Project illustrates that it is possible to live sustainably and affordably with style," according to Dobrolowski.
