TINY HOUSeS

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.

SALVAGE 17

We built this 17 x 7 ft (150sq/ft) from mostly salvaged materials. It's parked on Vancouver Island in Canada. It's for sale for $45,000 CAD. 

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!).

Rochette

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.

Peggy

The passive solar design means that this tiny house is a sun-gazer. Designed for a sunny and cold in winter/hot in summer climate, this tiny boasts an impressive insulation 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.

Poplar

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.

JAWA

Built in New Zealand, this 30 x 8ft (300sq/ft) epic tiny house was built to 80% completion over a really fun two-week workshop (six crew plus 16 participants). Jawa boasts all-natural New Zealand wood (oak floors, macrocarpa studs and structural timbers, redwood siding, poplar ceiling, redwood trim and interior slab surfaces), 100% wool insulation, salvaged double-pane and aluminum windows. Jawa is soon to be occupied by its' fantastic owners in the Bay of Plenty.

Eclipse

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 fun and relatively dry workshop two-week workshop to kick-off this build in Maple Ridge, BC in June 2017 (five crew plus ten participants). Eclipse features non-toxic building materials, LUNOS HRV, cedar exterior, pine walls and ceilings, fir structure, oak floors, 475 High-Performance Building Membranes and Roxaul insulation. Eclipse is parked and happily lived-in by its' owners in Portland.
