The Tiny Drop sports a combination teardrop trailer and tiny house.
Shelly Pottorf and Shannon Bryant are the main designers of the Tiny Drop. This efficient little house on a trailer is currently on tour and features Architend and Tend Building’s skills in creating artistic yet functional structures.
