Making a Rolling Bear Tiny Home, OUR Home.

This is our story, and how we managed to build and create a home in the mountains and our building process from start to end.

We are a married couple who shared a dream, the dream to live semi remotely in the beautiful mountains of BC. This was not an easy task but our ideals where bigger than us and after 5 years we have created a home in what once was an empty lot in a small town outside of Pemberton.

Meeting John (Owner at Rolling Bears Tiny Homes) was great help and motivation, initially we bought what he called his display home, the first home he built to do a showroom, this came in a 3 axle 30-foot-long trailer, and it was the beginning of creating our home. John was present in every step of the way, and has visited us multiple times along the years, he has become a true friend.

Putting a tiny home in our land required a lot of preparation, we had to get all the basic services to do a daily life. We started with a long call with BC hydro, figuring everything we had to do to get power on the land, luckily our neighbours had already gone through this process and being their last pole the closest point of contact, we just had to extend what they had already done. Two Poles later with a small electric shed, and we were ready to start our lives with electricity.

For the septic tank we decided to hire an expert, we wanted to make sure that all the basic services were done properly since the beginning to avoid problems in the future. So after Power and septic were done, we threw a pump in the existing well and brought the services underground to the location we wanted to have the tiny home. Then we poured a concreate slab and with that we were finally ready to receive Black Bear.

After living in the tiny home for a few months, things were starting to come together. We worked very hard on it, we started to build the deck, then we added a small addition on the side that became the mud room, and finally we winterized the skirt and got ready for an expansion. We wanted to have a larger bedroom, so we worked with John to customize the space we wanted. He listened to our needs, and we decided to give him freedom to do what worked best. After purchasing the first tiny home, we knew his building skills were great, so we decided not to interfere much.

We received the expansion on September 1st 2021, and the interior was going to be a surprise for us. What an exciting experience it is, to receive your house on wheels and move it in the air with a crane. 

Once it was in its place, me and my wife went inside to see it. We fell in love with it, we were very happy to see how John had utilised the space in a way that was very smart. A good size bedroom, a fire place, a closet space and a nice bathroom. The finishings and the colors where very good too.

Nowadays, we only have one more addition to build, a connection from the expansion into the mud room. After that the place will be done.

After living in these high-quality tiny homes for almost 4 years we want to thank John and his team for being the bridge to make our dreams come true. We now live in one of the most beautiful places on earth in a very comfortable setting without having to go through a traditional house build that would have cost us twice as much.

And for anyone looking into following these steps, my piece of advice is to do things right the first time, and that dreaming is the first thing we need to do, the challenges in between will become great learning experiences for life.

Again thank you John and team, we love our home in the mountains

"My wife and I have been studying and researching the quality and styles of Tiny Homes for the last 3 years. We came across two of the Rolling Bear Tiny Homes and were immediately impressed. The quality of their exterior appeal and the smooth flow of their interior design is by far one of the best we have seen and enjoyed. It is clear to us everything was well thought out and put together nicely. We look forward to designing our Tiny Home with Dawn and John in the near future."Anthony P, Golden BC 

"John of Rolling Bear Tiny Homes was hired to build and design a tiny home as a trial run for our Fishing Lodge on Vancouver Island. We are very pleased with the Salmon Bear and the phenomenal layout in the space we had to work with. The feedback from our guests has been very positive." Dr.Aaron L. - Nanaimo BC 

"We are overall pleased with our newly built Panda Bear. It looks amazing on our property over looking the lake. We know it's going to be a popular B N B rental. John & Dawn are amazing people who love what they do and it shows in their work. Thank you for everything!" <3 - Daniel & Michelle, Salmon Arm BC 

"Since we live on Vancouver island we purchased one of Rolling Bear Tiny Homes Backyard Studios sight unseen. Although we felt the price was reasonable for the quality described and the pictures shown, one can be a bit nervous about paying a deposit before inspecting the product. Upon arrival of the product, my husband and I were more than delighted with the quality of materials, the detailed work, and the overall function of these smaller buildings. For anyone looking for an extra room, Office or Studio we highly recommend this company." - Leslie M, Nanaimo BC 

"We are very happy with the Rolling Bear Tiny Homes Studio purchased from John. Since this purchase we have sold our home with the Office and are now in the market to have Rolling Bears build us another." - Ashley M, Gibsons BC
