Builder of high quality custom tiny houses
Hi, my name is Dan Louche. I began building tiny houses back in 2009 when I built my first one for my mom. At that time, the house she was living in was falling apart and becoming unlivable, so I knew I had to find her alternative housing. After researching various options I discovered the tiny house movement and realized that it was the perfect solution for her. Tiny houses can be constructed to very high standards and still be affordable. Since they are smaller, they require substantially less materials to construct compared to conventional homes.

People are handling this major transition in different ways. There are those who always chime in with, “Those e-books will never compare to real books.” Others accept the change a little easier by embracing and having fun with it.
