Tongue & Groove Tiny Homes

Jesse Russell, Kit Blackwelder

Jesse Russell returned to his hometown of Bend, Oregon where he started Tongue and Groove Tiny Homes with his childhood friend, Kit Blackwelder. The Tiny House movement represents a lifestyle paradigm shift. Eliminating most of your possessions and living in a 200 square foot house won’t appeal to everyone. However, a growing number of people have concluded that a big house and a focus on the material won’t make you happier; in fact, it just complicates things. A tiny house is a way to free yourself and open to more opportunities.
