Tiny House Needs a Home

We are currently building a tiny house on a 20 foot trailer and are looking for a place to call home in Portland.



We are a couple in our late twenties (blackjack dealer/baker and a school teacher) with a friendly 34 pound dog. The house is an attempt to simplify our lives and will allow us to focus on important things besides our finances.



The house is 139.5 square feet and comes complete with a kitchen, living area, sleeping loft, 32 inch…

Wanting to move to portland

Hello! My friend, daughter and I are looking to moving to portland next June. I know it's far away but we are starting to save up now. We live in Southern California. We don't really know what area to move to. Hawthorne seems like a place we would both like. But we are looking for an area safe, affordable and somewhere with good schools. Any suggestions?

Moving On Up To Alberta!

When Portland Story Theater launches its 10 th Anniversary 2014/2015 Season this September, it will be in their new home, the Alberta Abbey. Built in 1924, this mixed-use building offers the growth opportunity that Portland Story Theater has been looking for over the last couple of years. It's a fantastic opportunity and bittersweet at the same time. Portland Story Theater's current home, the intimate black box space of Hipbone Studio, has been perfect in almost every way for the past…

Moving to Portland area in July-August

Hello Portland,

My daughter and I are moving to the Portland area at the end of July beginning of August.  I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and I have grown tired of Phoenix.  The heat and dust grate my spirit.  I know it's rainy and cloudy in Oregon but I have had enough of sunshine to last a lifetime.  I'm hoping to find an affordable 2 bedroom apartment somewhere between 600 to 750 a month.  Downtown I'm sure is not going to fit in that range.  I have looked in Beaverton…
