Straight out of ‘Portlandia’: Someone stole a small home off its foundation in Oregon
Investigators in Oregon are looking for a stolen home.
Authorities found the 1,200-square-foot, log-cabin-style home missing from its foundation Tuesday in Klamath Falls, and notified the homeowner, reported KOBI-TV.
“We had a complete home stolen,” said Klamath County Sheriff Frank Skrah. “This isn’t a motor home, this isn’t a mobile home, and this is a ‘home.'”
The homeowner does not live in the dwelling full-time, and no one was at the home when it was stolen, investigators said.
Klamath Falls is about 280 miles south of Portland, which is gently mocked in the IFC sketch comedy, “Portlandia.”
Thursday’s episode features a skit about a much tinier home in the hipster paradise in a video that has been widely shared on social media.
Comedians Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein demonstrate the pleasures of living in a “1/4 Bedroom + 1/4 Bathroom* + 1/4 Living Room + 1/4 Kitchen,” filmed in a real 89-square-foot dwelling for rent at Portland’s tiny house compound, the Caravan-The Tiny House Hotel.
