Kansas City Designer Selected Wins The Jellystone Park™ Tiny Home RV Designer Challenge
Kristin Rieke of Rak’Designs will design three tiny house RVs, which will be available for rent this summer at Jellystone Parks in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia
KANSAS CITY, Feb. 14, 2017 — Kristin Rieke normally works as a residential interior designer for custom homes in the greater Kansas City area.
But this spring, Rieke has an exciting new project selecting interior and exterior color palettes and interior furnishings for three tiny house RV rentals, which will be available for rent this summer at select Jellystone Parks in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.
“This is an incredible opportunity,” said Rieke, an award winning designer who founded Rak’Designs 12 years ago.
Rieke was selected to design the tiny homes after winning the first Jellystone Park Tiny Home RV Designer Challenge, which is co-sponsored by Sonoma, Calif.-based Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, the nation’s largest tiny home builder, and Northgate Resorts, which owns the Jellystone Parks where the tiny house RVs will be on display.
Rieke will be completing her designs for the tiny house RVs in the coming weeks, and the units will be available for rent this summer at Jellystone Parks in Gardiner, N. Y.; Quarryville, Penn.; Hagerstown, Md.; and Luray, Va.
The tiny houses, which sleep four to six, will include kitchens and bathrooms. They will be available for rent by consumers at each park using the following links: Gardiner, NY, Quarryville, PA, Hagerstown, MD, and Luray, VA.
