Check out the Shonsie at Pittsburgh Pride!

84 Lumber, in partnership with Nemacolin, is so proud and excited to be sponsors of Pittsburgh Pride 2017. We have so many exciting things planned for the festival, including our Shonsie, which will be parked downtown for you to tour!

Our booth and Tiny Home will be parked at the corners of 9th Street and Liberty Avenue! Please stop by and say “Hi!” We will have a raffle to give away two BIG prizes (you won’t want to miss out on these!), and plenty of rainbow goodies to hand out.

Meet the cottage-style Shonsie! Built on a custom steel trailer with radial tires, safety brakes and stabilizing jacks, this home will transport you in elegant style to the nearest beach or seaside retreat. Onlookers will notice the striking blue or red metal roof and admire the polymer composite siding. You’ll love the views through the sliding glass patio doors that lead out to the picturesque front porch.

Couple curbs winter boredom building Tiny Home

Christine and Jimmy Joyce wanted a project to work on during the winter when business is slower due to bad weather, so they reached out to 84 Lumber to build a Tiny Home.

This Roving model features a modified front porch.

The Roving by Christine and Jimmy Joyce.

They said they may use this to rent as a hunting camp or they plan to sell it out right.

From the barn door to the counter tops, this Tiny Home has a rustic and cozy feel.

Their staff at Certified Safety Products in New York built everything seen here.. They expect to build more Tiny Homes in the future.
