TINY HOUSeS we have built
We custom design and build tiny houses. With a commitment to using non-toxic, low EMF (electromagnetic frequency), repurposed and salvaged materials, we work with you to design the tiny house that suits your needs, aesthetic, values, health and sensitivities. Running workshops to help people achieve their tiny house dream is also something that gives us great joy.
We ALSO build CUSTOM Tiny house shells. EMAIL us for a quote on YOUR design.

This 30 x 10 ft (400sq/ft) was a pleasure to build. We used all natural and non-toxic materials throughout with high-end appliances and finishes. There are two bedrooms upstairs, with kitchen, living, bathroom and office-nook downstairs. A beautiful family of four now enjoys the freedom of tiny living in this lovely custom home on Vancouver Island, Canada.
The passive solar design means that this tiny house is a sun-gazer. Designed for a sunny, cold winter and humid, hot summer, this tiny boasts an impressive insulation (R value) and more cool features than most. Peggy is a bachelor(ette) with a pull-out bed stowed away under the low mezzanine-level kitchen and bathroom. Peggy is 18 x 10 ft (200sq/ft) and is parked in Edmonton, Canada.
This 17 x 7 ft (150sq/ft) is built from mostly salvaged materials. The bump outs at both ends make it feel like a 20ft THOW.
It's ICBC registered as a U-built travel trailer. This designation is no longer available for tiny houses in BC, Canada. We got in before the feds cracked the whip on registering tiny houses (lucky us!).
We designed Eclipse for a lovely family of three and had an ambitious goal to deliver this 8 x 26 ft (270sq/ft) beauty to Oregon just in time for the total solar eclipse in August 2017. We ran a two-week workshop to kick-off this build in Maple Ridge, BC in June 2017 (five crew plus ten participants).
Poplar is 20 x 8ft (200sq/ft) and is the first non-toxic tiny house we built. It's so named because we used polar wood everywhere, as well as MgO wall-board with clay plaster, cotton batt insulation, mini-split A/C for heating and cooling and all electrical systems and appliances.
A sweet 26ft x 8.6ft (270 sq/ft) tiny house on wheels (THOW). We used plenty of salvaged materials on Joy, which brings us so much joy! The green corrugated siding gives an almost maintenance-free exterior and the plywood interior walls are ready for a natural clay plaster finish. Natural interior finishes are great because they increase negative ions in the space, which rejuvenate the body while creating a unique feeling that you just don't get using conventional materials. It's hard to describe but as soon as you walk into a building made with natural materials, you feel the difference.
Built in Australia from 90% recycled or salvaged materials this beauty features a low loft-space with a seating area under exposed rafters, off grid, and unique tub location. This tiny was built to 70% completion during a one week workshop in 2015, in partnership with Agari Farm. 12.5m/sq (130sq/ft).
