After working with a couple to design their custom trailer, New Frontier Tiny Homes decide to officially name the new model after the owners’ daughter.

When their baby daughter Escher arrived last year, Bela Fishbeyn and her husband Spencer Wright decided it was time to buy their first home. They opted for a 300-square-foot dwelling by New Frontier Tiny Homes, which they have set up in the glorious hills of Boulder Creek, California.

"The home is just so easy to live in and we do it with a toddler," says Fishbeyn.

Fishbeyn, who is the editor for The American Journal of Bioethics at Stanford University, spent months searching for the right tiny home designer and builder, but was having a hard time finding one that stood out from the pack.

“We didn’t want to build another studio on wheels. We wanted a house that featured everything—and more—than you’d find in a regular sized home. We thought that since we’d only be paying for 300 square feet, we should make the best of that minimal floor space,” explains Fishbeyn.

“As soon as we saw New Frontier’s Alpha model by David Latimer, we knew he was the perfect builder for us. We immediately sent him an email, and pestered him constantly until we were finally able to enter into contract in December of 2016.”
