From the company: "Utopian Villas was created in late 2014 by Justin Kreger and a few of his closest business associates. Whether it be someone’s permanent home or just their getaway destination, park models and tiny homes are the answer! So we decided that now was the the perfect time to create Utopian Villas! We all share a passion for the product that we produce."
From the company: "At Modern Tiny Living, we are one of the very few custom tiny home builders on the market, and the only of our kind in the Midwest. Our build process starts with conversation, dream building, and a real discussion about your priorities for your tiny house. We will work with you to help you discover what's most important for your build to ensure your tiny home experience is exactly what you've dreamt of."
From the company: "Carpenter Owl is a building studio based in Bloomington, Indiana, that specializes in creating unique structures from natural materials. We design and build around the needs and wants of our clients, creating environments that are low in chemicals and allergens. We attempt to use reclaimed and locally sourced materials wherever possible, believing fundamentally in a need for sustainability."
From the company: "Switchgrass offers custom built tiny homes that you can design from the ground up. We don’t have set models; our homes are unique and one of a kind. When you purchase a tiny home from us, you embark on a journey that we will walk you through. You begin by choosing the size of home you want and then work together with Byron to design the floor plan exactly how you envision. You can choose paint colors, fixtures, flooring, lights, etc., and have us finish it for you. If you need a little help deciding, Jessica’s creative talents can help guide you along the way. We want your tiny home building experience to be enjoyable, and your finished home to be an expression of you and your unique style."
From the company: "For the past 25 years we have been designing and building award winning tiny homes. Rather than feeling small, dark, and cramped, our designs are based on light and a feeling of openness and space. Since 2014, all of our units have been hand-crafted in our own RVIA Inspected plant and are designed for extreme climates including heavy snow, brutal cold, and searing heat. Common features in our units include panoramic windows, full kitchens, large bathrooms, large first floor bedrooms, washer/dryers, plenty of storage, full climate control, LED lighting and off-grid options."
From the company: "It’s through our passion for exploring the outdoors that has inspired our tiny home designs and model names. We have explored much of our home state of Michigan that has given us the inspiration for the unique names of our tiny homes. We can only hope that our tiny homes will bring you the enjoyment we experienced when we thought them up!"
