Below are just a few examples of what can be done, all can be completely customized. We can also build anything you find online or design yourself.
News & Updates
Jamaica Cottage Shop Vermont Cabin Build
October 31, 2023
Just putting the finishing touches on our first Jamaica Cottage Shop 24x30 "Vermont Cabin" build. It was built on a full walkout basement, we framed in one of the 30 ft walls with a door and 2 windows. And because it was on a basement vs. a slab, they purchased the floor package with supporting post and beam structure to hold up the middle, which we also built. It was a full loft with 2 large 48 in x 48 in windows, one on each side. The main floor had two doors and 8 smaller 36 in x 36 in windows. Total sq ft 1440. It took my son and I about 5 weeks to complete. The second Vermont Cabin build is in process and the third is on the books for Nov/Dec 2023. To book yours for 2024, contact us at 603-313-1504.

December 14, 2022
We did it!! We met our in initial crowdfunding goal. Thank you everyone. Now the real works starts. I have a lead on a 17 acre horse farm in Marlborough, I've been in discussions with a potential investor, and 2 customers have reserved spots...so while we still have a long way to go, we're making good progress...very exciting. Actively seeking additional leads on land to build on, either one unit or 20, investors/partners to help fund projects, and of course customers that want to live in a smaller house.

Tiny Homes on Wheels (THOWs), Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU's); etc... as well as entire Developments and Communities of Smaller Houses.

Build a Small House, Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), Cabin, Shack, Tiny House on Wheels (THOW), etc.
We can build a watertight shell (framing walls and floors, windows, siding, roofing and exterior trim), coordinate the entire build from start to finish (including insulation, flooring, sheetrock, kitchen, bath, electric, plumbing, etc.) or help with anything in between.
Design and Construction Consulting/Training
We absolutely encourage individuals to build themselves if they have the time and ability. Just about anyone can do it with a few tools and a little help. It's a great way to build sweat equity and self confidence. If you need some help getting started or get in a bind along the way, we're here to help.
Small or Tiny House Communities
We are currently working on raising capital to purchase land to develop a community specifically for smaller more affordable houses. For more info or to reserve your spot now, please contact us.
