We Know Right-Sized Living.

Our leadership team has deep-rooted backgrounds in the industry, and have experienced right-sized living first hand. We are a group of experts ready to guide you through this process.

Read the full story.

Wind River was born when our founder, Travis Pyke, built and moved into a tiny home with his family.

Working for a general contractor, Travis was always drawn to building, designing, and creating.

His career has spanned the full set of skills needed to take construction projects form napkin sketch to final nail.

The company's fascination with tiny homes is rooted in values like simple living, minimalism, and practical functionality.

For Travis' family, and for many families, going tiny helps them grow.

The newest addition to our team, Amelia has quickly become indispensable as a driven, level-headed, and perceptive Customer Champion. On her days off, you’ll find her trail running, teaching flute lessons, or playing in the Chattanooga Symphony.

Amelia Dicks

Director of Business Development | Customer Advocate

Dustin is a jack of all trades, and master of everything he touches. Our resident jokester, he is also meticulous, relentlessly focused on quality and functionality, and big-hearted. He might not want to be in your photo shoot, but he’d give you the shirt off his back. Oh, and he also kills it on the drifting circuit.

Dustin Lehmann

VP of Manufacturing & Quality Assurance

Dea brings an eye for style and design to everything she does, whether leading our marketing or helping clients understand and articulate their vision. A multi-tasker who brings passion and out-of-the-box thinking, she’s also pretty gnarly on a snowboard.

Dea Lisica

VP of Brand & Design

Dialed into the intricacies of business management, Paul is our guru of all things financial and an advocate for tiny home legalization and acceptance. Forward thinking and service-driven, he understands all of the intricate systems that go into building a tiny home, and how to help our clients make their dream a reality. On the weekends, he’s often backpacking with friends and family.

Paul Beckmann

CFO | Customer Accounts Executive

A company owner, he’s the glue that holds the team together. We call him our “Swiss Army knife” because he can solve any problem — always with a teacher’s spirit, a master builder’s skills, a voice of reason, and a ready laugh. Fun fact: he’s also passionate about tying flies for his many fishing adventures around the world.

Caleb Knowles

COO | Chief Engineering Officer

Our founder, a visionary thinker, and gifted designer, craftsman, and artist. Travis is as kind as he is driven, as focused as he is creative. Not least: he founded Wind River after building and living in his own tiny home with his family. When he’s not here dreaming, building, and meticulously ensuring the quality of your home, you’re likely to find him mountaineering in the Wind River Range.
