Tim and Celeste McGowan about Iron Roots Design

OUR Story

It started with a Tiny House on wheels.

To simplify their lives Tim and Celeste embarked on building their own tiny house right after they got married. With Tim having some construction experience and Celeste with none (she wasn’t an Interior Designer yet!) they built their own home from the ground up. Starting with a custom-designed and welded trailer.

With a mutual love of cooking, they devoted almost half of their home to the kitchen. It was an opportunity to learn about kitchen design, small spaces, and incorporating their values and lifestyle into their home. The tiny home kitchen had a dishwasher, large sink, a range, and a pantry.

That year was challenging but they had a lot of fun working together. In the end, the tiny home revealed their mutual passion for construction and design. When the tiny house was completed Tim started Iron Roots Design and Celeste went back to school to study interior design.

They lived in the tiny house for almost five years until moving to Bend, Oregon in 2019. It now sits next to their 1910 ranch home.
