"Moore" Tiny House

Our client fell in love with the Baxter model like many others and lucky for her we had it in production and available for sale. Prior to our business taking off, we wanted to be able to show the world our designs. Gina designed the Archer, Baxter, and Bunker and we decided to build them all. Since then we have had a lot of interest in the Baxter model and built several more with slight changes. Our client on this build was happy with the layout and material we chose for the Baxter but required the house to be self-contained. We were happy to oblige by adding solar power, gas heating, and a water tank. We wouldn't normally recommend an onboard water storage tank but in this situation, the client wanted to be more mobile. The timeline on this build, unfortunately, didn't allow us time to do our usual video tour - however, our lovely client has sent us some snaps of her home all set up for her full time living.

"I have been in my tiny home for 10 days now and it’s all I hoped for plus. Gina, Jason and the team at BUILD TINY were so helpful and easy to work with. Gina and Jason were amazing at explaining how it all works, sorting the solar, water storage etc. I had had a very bad experience with another company and was a little worried but the difference was chalk and cheese. So professional, easy to talk to and nothing was too much trouble. Thanks guys." Debra Moore
