Get a Copy of SketchUp

The Escher by New Frontier Tiny Homes

When New Frontier Tiny Homes came out with the Alpha Tiny House a couple years ago everyone was blown away. It’s an amazing design with a hideaway dining table, stunning kitchen, roll-up side door, and fold-down deck. The Alpha really set the bar higher for all tiny house designs. The Escher takes it to the […]
