This blog documents the progress of our super-cool, pre-fab home "somewhere" in the wilds of Northwest Arkansas. Rocio Romero designed the home, model LVL, and incorporated our custom modifications. GC Don Lourie is doing the build and architect Brad Satterwhite is providing additional ingenuity.

Rais You to SFH

We had a free weekend so we made a quick trip to SFH. While there, we helped Don and Jeremy install the Rais Pina wood stove. We placed it on an aluminum-clad pad in the corner of the living room. I have to say the build quality of this product is impressive. To reduce weight while positioning it, we were able to easily disassemble the side panels and door. Can't wait to try it in colder weather. Actually, after this brutal winter, maybe I can.

SFH also received a small mention in Vox Magazine's print edition and a special online feature today. Vox is a weekly paper published by the Missourian in Columbia. I guess the secret is getting out about Secret Fortress Hideout.

Hi Ethan,
I am an Architect in Wilmette, IL interested in building a Rocio Romero house. My wife & I visited a Perryville open house and liked the design. However, we might like to "try one on for size". Is you home available to rent for say, a week, or per day? If so, please let me know how to go about this and what you charge. Thanks,
Marshall Moretta
