“Mark Wipfli’s “Midnight Sun Tiny House” might be the most northern tiny house! It’s still a work in progress, but Mark’s tiny house is unique in design and can withstand an impressive 150 degrees of temperature change from Alaska’s summer to winter season.
Mark used to live in a large log cabin style home in Fairbanks, but then decided he didn’t need so much space.
