Byron and Dot Fears, owners of SimBLISSity Tiny Homes, recently hosted our tiny house on their property just outside of Lyons, Colorado. What’s so cool about these tiny home builders (aside from the fact they are tiny home builders)? The construction site for SimBLISSity is completely off-grid! Read on as we spotlight this tiny home builder.
Get a behind the scenes look at SimBLISSity’s off-grid operation:
SimBLISSity Tiny Homes opened for business in the winter of 2014. Two and a half years later Byron and Dot have built twelve custom tiny homes! That’s quite impressive and proves that tiny homes are continuing to grow in popularity.
“We believe that a home should be full of life.” – Byron, SimBLISSity Tiny Homes
Byron and Dot strive to build their tiny homes with sustainable products, so they use a lot of beetle kill or blue stained pine, a product made from dead trees that have been affected by the mountain pine beetle. You can see their use of this product in their tiny home called “Blue Sapphire.”
“We’re trying to morph the Great American Dream, to the Great American Tiny Home Dream.” – Byron
Perhaps the most interesting element to SimBLISSity tiny home operation is that they build completely off-grid. The state of Colorado gets more than 300 days of sunshine, so there is plenty of energy to be harnessed by the sun! With the help of a large solar system, SimBLISSity is able to power all of their tools and construct these tiny homes in a sustainable way.
“We sustainably build, sustainable homes for sustainable lifestyles, to help promote a sustainable future.” – Byron
The Blue Sapphire is currently for sale! Contact SimBLISSity Tiny Homes directly for any inquires about the house.
