Lawrence Thomas  LAS VEGAS, NV
My custom built tiny house and all of my belongings was stolen on 12/31/2016 from a truck stop in Hermiston Oregon.  I was in the process of moving to Nevada when I got stuck in a horrible snow storm and could not drive further until the storm passed.  I was forced to leave my house under watch at a truck stop.  I was in the process of going back when the weather cleared to recover my home.  Unfortantely someone broke the hitch lock and stole the house that I built with ALL of my possessions.  Many which cannot be replaced because of sentimental value.  Any and all help would be appreciated.    The photos shown was the last place it was seen.  At one Stop truck stop in Hemiston Oregon.  If you have seen this house please call 911 and contact the Umitilla Oregon sherrifs office.

The door has been repaired and had two new locks. I have ordered the wheel boot lock, still looking for a GPS unit. Today I plan on replacing the wiring to the electric box as well as repairing damage to the counters. But I'm happy the tiny house is home!!

The Tiny House was recovered and returned to Las Vegas in the early hours this morning. Unfortunately and as expected the thieves destroyed the inside of the tiny house. Items of theft include. I 40" smart tv, propane weber grill, Sirius radio, microwave, tools, fridge, cooper wiring, two tires, and more. The thieves destroyed the door, back wall, interior walls. I am now in the process of going through the remaining items and I will start rebuilding as money and time permit. Thank you for your help in sharing, donating, and ultimately finding my tiny house. I am now raising only what I need to repair and replace. After I reach my goal of 2000.00 I will be closing down this go fund me page. You can continue to follow me via facebook microtinyhouse page or my personal page to watch videos of the damages and repairs to come. Again THANK YOU!
