About Tyler Barnes
Environmentally conscientious, owner-builder, designer with a B.A. in Architectural Studies from the University of Washington. Have lived in "The Gorge" since 1993 and married a real "local girl" from Mosier, Oregon. Together we have traveled the world and settled down in this amazing community. We enjoy sharing our home with people who want to escape the hustle and bustle of their lives and take in all that our little spot has to offer.
Tyler Barnes purchased this House in 2000
Why Tyler Barnes chose Underwood
We bought this one acre parcel back in 1999 with the intent to build a shop and garage with living quarters above – the space you are in now – that we would live in while building the main house, when time and money allowed. As a “young couple” with no money, we searched for used and reclaimed materials, enlisted the help of friends and family to help build this structure, and essentially were able to “build a house” ourselves. Providing shelter for yourself is a primal experience and is exhausting, challenging and rewarding.

Cute place, very clean and it had everything we needed.
Pretty area and close to Hood River.
Perfect for a quiet get away!
This was my second time stay, it's perfect for me. Quiet and yet easy access to town and outdoor activities. The cabin is super comfortable and has everything you would need to just hunker down. The woodstove seals the deal for a winter retreat! Tyler is fantastic if you have any questions.
Nice and cozy. Quiet location, close to Hood River and White Salmon. Definitely a relaxing weekend.
Definitely cozy in the rain!
We loved our stay in spite of three days of rain. We hope to come again. You provided everything we needed. We were so impressed with how many features of this beautiful space have been repurposed.
Romantic and cozy
Just like we hoped. Cute, cozy, clean and everything worked great. The woods are beautiful and we even had baby deer come within a few feet of us#! I highly recommend this place for a romantic getaway! #!!
We enjoyed our short time at the cabin. First morning there were 3 deer eating leaves in the yard. It was located just 3 miles from the wedding we were there for so super easy for us. They left a lot of great information about local stuff like where to go to the grocery store.
White Salmon is 4 miles away with most major services.
