Brevard Tiny House Company’s goal is to offer alternative housing options to people who seek more economical and environmentally-friendly dwellings that are as fulfilling as a typical American home.
Tiny Houses are a way to travel in comfort, to downsize a hectic lifestyle, or to make that “cabin in the woods” (or on the lake, or on the beach) an affordable option without sacrificing quality, craftsmanship, or comfort. As a young company, located just south of Asheville, NC, we have an eagerness to jump into new projects, and offer flexibility and openness to your input in ways that larger companies are unable to do. We believe in the following:
- Craftsmanship: Filled with unique touches and hand-selected woods, and coupled with particular attention to detail in the structural and functional aspects of the home, our tiny houses will withstand the bumps and winds of the highway, while looking like a million bucks!
- Comfort: Regardless of size, your tiny house should be a comfortable space to live. We work with with single-level and lofted floorplans, and incorporate design features of your choosing.
- Input: We are interested in your ideas, and customizing the home to make it uniquely yours. We are happy to work with hand-drawn floorplans, to participate in extensive discussion of your needs, and to consult on projects you have already begun. We also welcome you to actively participate in the building process at our site in the mountain town of Brevard, North Carolina.
- Affordability: We want our Tiny Houses to reach people in various economic situations and stages of life. Our commitment to affordability without sacrificing quality is what drew us to create this company.
What is a Tiny House?
There are many definitions of a Tiny House in terms of size and design. The primary characteristic of a Tiny House is that it maximizes space efficiency in a much smaller home. Typically Tiny Houses range between 100 and 800 square feet, and have varying ranges of mobility. Essentially, they occupy a position somewhere between regular homes and RVs. They make the most of a small space and can be mobile, while simultaneously retaining the coziness and durability of a home. A Tiny House could be your next permanent dwelling, cabin, hunting lodge, beach house, guest house, or mobile home.
What is the Tiny House Movement?
The Tiny House movement is driven by the need to reexamine the amount of space and the number of things needed to live happily. Full-time Tiny House living offers a rewarding challenge to downsize the amount of stuff accumulated over the years in return for simpler living, flexibility, and the opportunity to be debt-free. The Tiny House movement encourages people to be involved in communities of sharing, to engage with the outdoors (its not often that you can live in a room with windows on all four sides), and to prioritize the elements of your life that are truly meaningful.
Where are we?
Located just 35 minutes south of Asheville, NC in the quaint mountain town of Brevard, our company is conveniently situated near multiple state parks and the Pisgah National Forest. Future Tiny House dwellers can come check out the progress on their home while seeing the sites of Asheville (like the Biltmore house, Grove Park Inn, Highland Brewing Company, The Hop ice cream shop, and downtown) and Brevard (like Sliding Rock, Looking Glass Falls or Rainbow Falls, Oskar Blues Brewing or Brevard Brewing, Dupont State Forest: home of the Hunger Games filming, and Dolly’s ice cream shop). You may even catch one of the many festivals in downtown Brevard, or a glimpse of the town’s famous white squirrels!
Please note that our first Tiny House is currently located in Pennsylvania.
