Tiny Kreations • Model Home:
The Upper MacKenzie

East Central Fla on the Space Coast of Brevard
Palm Bay, Melbourne, Rockledge, Cocoa, and the Beaches

The Upper MacKenzie is the first Tiny Home model that Zeke and Pam Twardzik built. This model was inspired by their first home, a cabin near the MacKenzie River in Eugene, Oregon.

After they moved to Florida, they wanted to preserve the memories of this river cabin below the Cascade Range. Rather than just name it the MacKenzie (after the river), they included the descriptor "Upper" as a nod to the two loft bedrooms upstairs.

The Upper MacKenzie will soon be joined by the Lower MacKenzie, a model that will feature a master bedroom on the ground floor.

First Step

Get An Inexpensive VR Goggle Set


For less than $10 Google Cardboard will work. Optics are fair (although if you need vision correction it may not work so well). Cardboard also requires you to hold it against your head and it is not comfortable for prolonged use.

Comfortable Quality Experience

For longer term use choose the plastic molded goggles. They look much more professional and they have better optical adjustments. Choose one with a top and side strap like these which cost less than $30: VR Goggles.
