The Amazing Mysterium 




Kangablue is a traditionally designed tiny house. At 170 sq ft., it is currently the biggest tiny house at Caravan. Elegant and roomy, Kangablue sleeps up to 3 people.

The lofted sleeping area features a memory foam queen bed that is accessible by ladder. Featuring a sofa bed on the ground level that transforms into an additional full-sized bed, a comfy reading chair and a bamboo kitchen table and chairs, Kangablue is Caravan’s most spacious tiny house and offers guests a variety of places to relax and hang out.

Like all of Caravan’s tiny houses, Kangablue has running water, electric heat, a kitchen, flush toilet and a hot shower.

Kangablue was designed and built by Australian born Benn Kovco in 2014, in the Cully neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. Benn built the tiny house on weekends and at night over the course of 10 months while working at his full time job. The house features a variety of Pacific Northwest woods, including blue pine, also known as beetle kill pine.

Blue pine can be any species of pine tree that acquires a natural blue stain after being infected by the Mountain Pine Beetle. With a nod to the builder’s heritage, his building materials and the fact that this house is as adorable as a baby kangaroo, the name “Kangablue” seems fitting.
