Ryan Ott, Owner

For over 18 years I have been involved in the building trades. I've cultivated my knowledge and approach to insure high quality results. Those results are what I bring to the Tiny House Movement.

Over the course of my life I have wandered into many interests. I've studied stained glass, boat restoration, mechanics, photography, woodwork... The constant however, is home construction. 

What is Craftsmanship?

I spent a few years restoring classic and antique wooden boats. These boats had a final restoration cost well into the six figures. During my time in the boat shop I learned a lot of things. One of those things is that no matter what, if your goal is to deliver the best product, you don't stop until your work is perfect. Good is the enemy of great. If you want things to be perfect, you will need to fight through the layers of good, to get to great.
Craftsmanship comes when you are willing to go those extra steps, forgoing production time, letting go of comfortable and pushing yourself to be the greatest each day.

Our Goals

The goal of each tiny house we build is to create a beautiful place for people to live their life to it's fullest potential. We believe that quality trumps all; That we all deserve to be surrounded by the best life has to offer. Each person must take the time to surround themselves with things they love. 

The presence of each item, emotion or experience in our lives has been cultivated directly or indirectly by us. We choose what stays and what goes. We choose how we want to live and when we do it right we get joy, love, relaxation and all the best of life.  

We appreciate your visit to this site and hope it inspires you to continue your search of tiny homes.
