| Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses

Greg Parham is the founder and owner of Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses based in Durango, CO. Greg was raised in a small Texas town where he learned the values of hard work, honesty, integrity, and also of individualism/autonomy, but also of helping a neighbor in need. He has an extensive background in several facets including starting work as a carpenter at age 14, to receiving a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Texas in 2005, to practicing architecture for five years in the booming region of central Texas, to dabbling in a bit of real estate investing before moving to Durango in 2011. Here, he found odd jobs as a handyman before landing a position as a Contractor/lead designer with a local alternative home builder. Here, Greg not only learned the art of estimating, permitting, managing sub contractors, staying on top of material orders, and working within budget constraints,  but he also absorbed much knowledge of alternative building methods such as strawbale, papercrete, hempcrete, locally milled framing lumber, adobe, and envelope wall to name a few. By the end of 2012, Greg had caught wind of the tiny house movement. Searching for his own affordable housing option in the incredibly high priced Durango real estate market, he made the decision to design and build his own tiny house. In the Spring of 2013, while constructing his new house,  Greg saw an opportunity in the emerging tiny house market and decided to combine all of his talents and passions into the formation of Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses. To date, his team has designed and built over 45 completely custom tiny houses, never building the same house twice. Rocky Mountain Tiny Houses is known for quality, customization, and pushing the boundaries of tiny house design.

In his free time, Greg enjoys playing outside as much as possible. A former bronze medalist at the USA cycling 24 hour mountain bike nationals, cycling remains Greg’s top past time, but you can also find him paddleboarding, skiing, snow shoeing , hiking, mountaineering, backpacking, and hunting the several rivers, valleys, mountains, and forests that abound in Colorado and across the southwest.
