How to get your Tiny House Custom Designed, Financed, and Built from the comfort of your couch
Are you ready to go tiny?
Hey There and Welcome! 

I'm Ryan Ott, 
Licensed Builder and Owner of Midwest Tiny Living. 
If it's alright with you I'm going to do my best to help you go tiny! Are you ready? 

As Steven Covey put  it in his book The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, “Begin with the end in mind.” 

Not having a strategy is like deciding to build a house with no idea how big the bathroom is or where you’ll put the kitchen. You can’t just bang some nails into  wood and hope the outcome resembles a habitable dwelling. That's why we have a complete strategy for you. 
We begin with the end... "A Beautiful Home Designed Around You" and worked out all of the details on how to make that happen. 
You have searched the websites and read the blogs. You know you are ready to go tiny. You have a pretty good idea of what your house will look like and now its time to choose a builder.
You need a builder that...
  •  Can Design Your House The Way You Want
  •  Offers Financing for Easy Payments
  •  Has a Custom App To See Your Build Progress
  •  Is Backed By Third Party Certification
  •  Offers Insurance to Protect Your Investment
  •  Has a 90 Day Buy Back Guarantee! 
  •  Has an Easy Way to Get Started
And that's what you get when you choose us! 
Design Your House The Way You Want!
In order for us to offer our lender an exact price for your build we must understand the dimensions, layout, appliances, multitude of materials and all of the details that will be in your amazing new tiny home. We know averages of $2000 to $3000 per trailer foot are pretty common. 

Every lender must have a specific price if they are going to lend the money. So the obvious first step is your investment to develop your plan. You've taken the first step, next is Kimberly. 

You're in Good Hands With Our 
Brilliant Designer Kimberly...

You are moving into a Tiny House and you want it to reflect your style. When you wake up in the morning you want to look around and say "this is the life."

Kimberly understands how to listen to you, your needs, your desires and ask you the right questions to develop your tiny house. You will get a 3D tour of your house so you can see the entire layout before it's built. During your virtual walkthrough you can ask questions, suggest changes and get a real feel for what your beautiful home will look like before the first nail goes in. 

Kimberly will work for weeks to get your tiny house design plan perfect for you!
Can you Imagine What Kimberly Can Design For you?
Financing For Easy Payments
Next on the list is funding. Some of our clients are all set with funding and if you are set, skip this step, but if not read on.
You know you have a FICO credit score over 600 which is the minimum our lender can lend to and you know you can come up with the low 5% down payment for your loan. Once your design plan and pricing contract is all set we will help you submit the necessary documents to the lender. 

Ready to go tiny but don't have all the cash?
No Problem! 

You have the opportunity to finance your build through our tiny house lender. This program is designed specifically for people like you who are ready to buy a tiny house. If you are looking for good rates, terms out to 25 years for a lower payment and fast funding times our lender has them for you!

How Do You Get Started?
So far,  we have helped multiple single mothers looking to raise their kids in a safe affordable home. Retirement Aged Baby Boomers who want a comfortable space and a main floor bedroom. Newly Weds ready to start their lives with low or no debt.  Single people who just want a nice small space to enjoy. And, couples who are simply tired of their regular house with high expense and constant maintenance.

Hi, I'm Stephanie Kubes and this is The Willow Tree.
I decided to go tiny because somebody told me I have to triple my income to get a regular mortgage. I'm a single mom by myself so that just wasn't feasible and so I was determined and this was just an alternative route that I discovered and it has been my dream.
I live here in The Willow Tree with my daughter, she's five years old. I designed the house to really take into consideration the fact that I have a young daughter and that I have two cats and a dog. I designed this house in conjunction and collaboration with Midwest Tiny Living.
"we wish you the best of luck on your tiny journey"
Here's how easy it is to get started...
Finally decide to become part of the tiny house movement by investing in your design plan. You're going to fill out the form below and get your dream started! 

Your design plan is not an extra expense, it is the first step 

It is included with your total home price. However, the only way to get all of the answers you, I and the financing company need to actually build your tiny house, is to design all aspects of it first. Otherwise we are just guessing and nailing boards together and that's a horrible plan. 
Schedule your call with me...
We have worked hard to develop the best program for new tiny house owners. Schedule a 30 minute call with me so I can understand your needs and wants and develop your plan to move forward!
 Over the next few days be ready with pictures, pinterest boards and all the rest of your needs and wants because we are going to do our best to make your dreams come true!
