What is Craftsmanship?
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.
Do what you love and you'll love what you do. 
I spent a few years restoring classic and antique wooden boats. These boats had a final restoration cost well over $100,000. 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.

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 comes first; 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.

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 work out all of the details on how to make that happen. 

Does that sound good to you?

Check Out This Clients Story...
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"
