The Peterson Family
The Peterson Family

Hello! My name is Nick and in 2011 my wife and I decided to make some major life changes while awaiting the arrival of our daughter. Our goal was to have more time, energy and resources for what matters most—our growing family. We sold the majority of our possessions and move into a 1966 Airstream travel trailer. For the next four years, we lived and traveled in the Airstream.

As we evaluated our housing needs we decided on an RV. Family is scattered across the states and it's important for us to see family (more than a long weekend during the holidays). As we began looking at RVs, we fell in love with the look and quality of Airstreams. Ultimately our goal was to be entirely off-grid and self-contained. We began exploring all the various options for power, heating and cooling.

The majority of heat sources in RVs use propane. With the downsides of propane as a heat source (cost, condensation & potential leaks) we decided on wood heat. As we looked at the different options for our tiny house it was a challenge to find the best solution. We spent months researching the different options and decided to create Tiny Wood Stove as a resource for other people that are looking for affordable, sustainable wood heat for tiny spaces.

Our business has quickly grown and we now offer our own line of small wood stoves plus stock a wide variety of installation parts and accessories. Since starting this business in 2015 we sold the Airstream and built a Tiny House on five acres in North Idaho. We are passionate about small space living and excited to help you with a wood stove for your tiny space!

NICK - Visionary

The Peterson family has recently settled down in North Idaho to live simply in their tiny off-grid homestead. Nick loves entrepreneurship,
rock climbing, mountain biking, permaculture and connecting kids with nature. While the Petersons no longer dwell in an Airstream they still live Tiny and have plans for a road-school van for extended family adventures in the near future.


JULIA - Chief Storyteller

Julia has been traveling full-time with her husband, two kids and their dog for six years (and counting). They are currently living in their self-renovated Sprinter Van and travel all over the US. You’ll find her hiking (preferably mountain-) trails when she has the time, carrying around her camera (and probably a kid, too), or at home baking some chocolate muffins.


CODY - Customer Success Coach

Cody & Randi built their 20 ft. tiny house in 2015 and traveled around the United States and Canada before settling down on an off-grid property in Central Oregon. In addition to his work with Tiny Wood Stove, Cody is also a beekeeper and avid gardener. When not working, you can find them backpacking, fly fishing or bouncing down a dirt road in their Mitsubishi Delica.

HEATHER - Cust. Success Coach

Heather has been living full-time in an RV with her husband and 2 cats for over 5 years. They have decided to stop traveling for now and put some roots down by living tiny on their land in Northern VT. In her free time, you’ll find her in the kitchen cooking up vegan meals, designing tiny spaces in SketchUp, hiking or playing in her garden.

ELIZABETH - Sales & Marketing

Elizabeth lives and travels full time with her husband and two girls in their self converted school bus.  She and her family are seeking adventure all over North America through rock climbing, backpacking, and other outdoor pursuits.


DAN - Integrator & General Mgr

Living the digital nomad life with his wife, child, and two dogs in a renovated 1974 Airstream.  Dan and Leanne sold their houses and most of their stuff so they could be free to explore the country, live off-grid, and pursue their passions.  When he's not working, you’re most likely to find Dan in the woods somewhere, hiking and collecting wild edible plants (and garbage).
