Tiny Houses...Big Living

by Jennie McGhan PATERSON – Earlier this month HGTV showcased two tiny houses at Destiny Ridge Vineyard on its nationally televised program, “Tiny House, Big Living.” Destiny Ridge Vineyard is owned by Alexandria Nicole Cellars and is located along the Columbia River near Paterson. During the filming, construction crews from Elite Construction of Kennewick and Finishing Touches of Renton competed for 10 days to complete the two houses, which are now used as accommodations for winery guests. The results, said Alexandria Nicole Cellars owner Ali Boyle, are “…rather unique.” Her husband, Jarrod, said the tiny houses that were created exceeded their expectations. “The motivation behind this project was to give our wine club members a world class experience,” he said. One of the two houses, constructed by Elite Construction, is sleek and modern. Cork flooring, wine barrel finishes on the walls and a feature providing guests wine on tap are part of the amenities. The other home, the “Finishing Touches home,” said Mrs. Boyle, has a twisted roofline and every room faces the Columbia River. The construction firm incorporated many repurposed materials to “…reduce, reuse and recycle,” keeping in mind the HGTV program’s focus. The winner has not yet been chosen and will be announced at the winery’s harvest party on Saturday, Aug. 29. Alexandria Nicole Cellars has left the voting to its wine club members, who can cast their ballot at the tasting rooms in Prosser and Paterson or on the winery’s Facebook page. The tiny houses are available for wine club members to rent online at ancwines.com.
