Our goal is to promote interest in—and educated about—the possibilities of small home living. We are invested in building a community of people who desire to live responsibly and tread lightly on their environment.
In the United States, the average size of new single-family homes has been on the climb.
In 1978, the average home was 1,780 square feet. 2007: 2,479 square feet. 2013: 2,662 square feet. Although the average family size has decreased, the average home size has increased dramatically. People own more material possessions than at any point in history, which requires more square footage to house those things.
The small house movement is a return to houses of less than 1,000 square feet. Frequently, the distinction is made between small (between 400 square feet and 1,000 square feet) and tiny (less than 400 square feet). People residing in small homes enjoy a minimalistic lifestyle with fewer material possessions and a break away from the consumerist mold.

We do our best to reduce harmful and unnecessary materials through ongoing research, and we design and build new-generation structures utilizing the best materials available in our local market. Our buildings reduce CO2 emissions, limit excessive energy consumption, improve efficiency, and minimize maintenance.
In our houses you will find cutting-edge technology for comfort, convenience, and sustainability, including:
