This Manly Space by Wind River Tiny Homes is Big on Style

The tiny house trend is officially here to stay. More and more companies are offering innovative small homes, and they aren’t the cliche, low budget, trailer-park double-wides of days past. These are luxury homes, completely customized to suit the owner. Few companies do tiny houses better than Wind River Tiny Homes, and few tiny houses make us want to sell off all of our possessions like The Rook.

The Rook was made for the modern man who wants to dwell in an urban loft but lead a nomadic life. The rugged, urban style starts with the exterior, which is covered with vertical siding and exposed stainless steel screws. Stepping inside reveals a masculine space. The Rook boasts industrial touches like an exposed brick veneer wall, floating rebar steps, and raw steel accents. The design is so well executed, you forget this is a house on wheels and not a studio in the city.

When people hear the words “tiny house” they often assume a lack of creature comforts, but Wind River Tiny Homes was able to pack everything you would need to live and work on the road into The Rook. The abode features two lofts, a convertible office and living space, a kitchen, and a bathroom. Through clever solutions, like a fold-down desk, built-in shelving, and swivel stools that can be tucked away when not in use, Wind River created a complete home in a trailer that is just 22 feet long.

Based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, the folks at Wind River Tiny Homes don’t just build tiny — they live tiny. This gives them unique insight into what should (and should not) go into a tiny house, how spaces need to function, and how to maximize on minimum square footage. The Rook is one of company’s higher end builds, both in style and price, so if this isn’t quite what you are looking for, Wind River Tiny Homes can create a custom home just for you.

The 11 best Robert De Niro movies to stream right now
From Raging Bull to The Godfather Part II, these are the roles that have defined De Niro's long career
Robert De Niro in Goodfellas

There are few actors working today who can match the career that Robert De Niro has had. Some, like Brad Pitt or even George Clooney, have been in plenty of great movies, but even they don't stack up to the kind of career that De Niro has had over the last half a century. De Niro's success can be chalked up, at least in part, to his collaboration with great directors. De Niro has been in some of Martin Scorsese's best movies, and Scorsese isn't the only director who knows how to use him.

Really, though, it's De Niro himself who deserves a lot of the credit. Although he's been in plenty of schlock, the best movies of his career are up there with the best movies ever made. When he emerged on the scene, De Niro showed off his ability to play a range of different types, and his skills have only deepened as the years have gone by. Keep reading and find out what Robert De Niro movies you cannot miss if you have already.

The 12 best Adam Sandler movies (they’re not all comedies)

What is there left to say about Adam Sandler? The Sand-Man has been a fixture of pop culture for well over 20 years, having worked first on Saturday Night Live and then broken out in a series of farcical, wonderful comedies in the years after his departure. He's one of the biggest comedy stars on the planet, and he's been part of some of the best comedy movies. He's also made plenty of movies that nobody should be forced to watch twice.
For every movie that has immediately been relegated to the trash bin of history, though, Sandler has also made an indelible comedy or a surprising turn into drama. While he could have emerged looking a little bit like a one-trick pony who relies on funny voices for cheap laughs, Sandler turned out to be far more complicated than that. He is a genuinely great actor whenever he wants to be. The rest of the time, he's content to make silly movies with his best friends. Here are the best Adam Sandler movies you need to watch now.
